The Pinball Expo in Chicago was kind enough to hire me to create the t-shirt for this year – HERE IT IS! There are some things I would fix, but generally very pleased with this. Limited Edition prints available on my website and at my booth at Expo. This piece explores the history of pinball that we all know, when Pinball was accidentally created during an epic battle between the ancient Merlin and a cosmic Quasar Dragon.#pinballexpo #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass

Very proud of this piece! Put a ton of hours into it. This is my Attack From Mars pinball backglass remake, officially licensed from Williams/Bally. I'm producing these as limited edition Acrylic Backglasses and flexible Translites for use in pinball machines and lightboxes.‍I filled it full of homages and easter eggs calling back to some of my favorite Alien properties. Can you find any of them?‍I will have a batch of these with me at Pinball Expo this week in Chicago.‍Thanks for all the support on this so far!‍More info here:https://www.flylanddesigns.com/product-category/pinball-and-arcade-artwork/••••‍#attackfrommars #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass #pinballexpo

Huge personal project I'm working on. Redesign of the classic Attack From Mars I've officially licensed from Williams that I plan on producing as limited edition Translites and Acyrlic backglasses. Here's the ink drawing right before adding color. I love packing in as much activity and detail as possible, and I threw in a bunch of nods to other Alien attack genres.Printing these now – finished it just in time to bring to Pinball Expo in Chicago- can't wait to share more.••••#attackfrommars #williams #bally #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinballexpo #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass #alienart #scifiart

Here's one of my favorite projects this year: Gig poster for the Disco Biscuits at Camp Bisco. The band said "go nuts", so I did.

Happy Birthday, Gritty! Hard to believe it's been one year since the Philadelphia Flyers hired me to design Gritty, their new mascot. So surreal to have watched my artwork take on a life of its own in such a big way. Thanks again for the opportunity, it's been a wild ride!

Drew an original sharpie ink drawing on the back of one of my metallic foil Skeleton Gunslinger disc golf discs at the request of a really cool customer. They wanted a nod to Doc Holiday so I slapped a big mustache on him. Tricky to draw on this slippery plastic surface! Learned the hard way to put a towel underneath while I'm drawing, otherwise the foil side will scratch!#skull #skeleton #discgolf #discgolfdisc #discraft #sharpie #sharpiedrawing

Crazy cat I drew for a t-shirt design for Streets Love Us, a motorcycle lifestyle brand – The client really let me have a lot of fun and freedom with this one creating a chaotic scene. Inked in Clip Studio Paint, I'll share the finished design tomorrow!….#motorcycleart #appareldesign #tshirtdesign #tshirtartist #screenprintart #dtg#art #originalartwork #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

Moonshine Bandits hired me to create this graphic for them last year (for a t-shirt, and even their tour bus!), and they are graciously allowing me to sell 100 Limited edition art prints – signed and numbered by the artist (me!). If you haven't heard the Moonshine Bandits, go check them out – they have a really unique sound and have toured with a lot of the greats. Always a pleasure to work with these guys, they treat me well!Grab the prints from my shop if interested.#moonshinebandits #countryrock #eagleart #patrioticart #guns #secondammendmentart https://www.flylanddesigns.com/shop/

Nearly a year has passed since I was hired to create the concept art for Gritty, the Philadelphia Flyers Mascot. Hard to believe! I forgot to share this:‍Photographer Noah Friedman was kind enough to interview me and take a series of portraits. All of them were great (considering what he had to work with!), but I thought this one captured my personality perfectly.‍You can see the rest of the photos, and listen to the interview about the creation of Gritty here:‍http://www.noahfriedmanstudio.com/f2pod/2019/3/3/brian-illustrator-and-mascot-designer‍#gritty #nhl #grittynhl #conceptart #mascot #mascotdesign #freelanceartist
