You may remember me posting last year that I designed the LE Alien pinball backglass. It's a long story, but the company fell apart before it was massively produced (due to a family curse), and I never received the backglass I was supposed to get :( But I found a company that produced one for me, and I just received it. It's STUNNING! 26" square, 1/8" inch thick reverse-printed on acrylic translucent plastic. The colors are so vibrant when backlit!I have it in my window right now like a demented stain-glass window. Going to build a light box for it soon. If anyone is interested in getting one, PM me.#alienpinball #pinballart #pinballartwork #pinball #pinballmachine #playfield #backglass

Unlimited Off-Road Jeep Expo Map Illustration and T-Shirt

Client:

Unlimited Off-Road

Description:

I was commissioned to illustrate these two detailed, accurate maps for two Unlimited Off-Road Expo events, as well as the t-shirt for this gathering of die-hard jeep and atv enthusiasts. The map was a really fun challenge, as we had to piece together satellite maps, floorpans, and previous event photos to map out the event. For the t-shirt, we wanted to create something that was very hand-drawn and grungy, in contrast to a lot of the clean, photo-driven car show designs.

Client Testimonial:

Man you killed it with that one! It looks amazing!

Owner, Unlimited Off-Road

Grim Reaper Cowboy Gunslinger Sled Wrap

Client:

Arctic FX

Description:

Grim Reaper gunslinger illustration I created for a vinyl graphic wrap for snowmobiles sold by Arctic FX for a new brand they are developing. I illustrated a skeleton gunslinger on the front, and a creepy western-styled Grim Reaper on the sides. I love designing for vehicles, because they are such oddly shaped canvases to fill. The new line of graphics will be branded “FlyLand Designs” in a partnership I was fortunate enough to work out with them. Feeling very privileged to be included in their stable of really skilled artists.

Tiki Character Holding Shrunken Head Logo

Client:

Wayne Harvey

Description:

Logo for a gaming company called Tiki Tantrum I created of a tiki chief holding a shrunken head.

This job was perfect for me, since I love drawing tiki art so much. The client really dug the style of another tiki character I had created, so I tried my best to expand on that and make it the best one I’ve done so far. The logo is being used as the intro screen on several games and apps developed but he company.

Client Testimonial:

I’m absolutely in love with it.  Consider it a job well done!

Medusa and Sugar Skull Girl Boat Wrap

Client:

Silver City Mobile Detailing

Description:

Vinyl boat wrap of a Sugar Skull girl with tentacles for hair and Medusa on a bed or roses I created for Silver City Mobile Detailing.

This might be the most complex vinyl wrap graphic I’ve ever worked on! So much time went into the detail of every snake, and every tentacle. To make things more complex, the size of the illustration was over 10 feet long! I created the line art in Clip Studio Paint, and then colored everything as a vector in Adobe Illustrator so everything would print nice and crisp.

Woman Fighting Evil Monsters Album Cover

Client:

New Hong Kong

Description:

The band New Hong Kong hired me to illustrate their album cover for The King Makes The Rules, showing a bunch of evil monsters sparring with a young vampire hunter.

The band wanted it to be creepy but still fun, so I kept the gore to a minimum and the colors saturated. I illustrated the mummy, werewolf, zombie, and pirate skeleton in a heavy brushed ink style, trying to emulate the amazing Tales from the Crypt covers by Jack Davis. The band was really fun to work with, and the final result ended up fitting their music perfectly.

Client Testimonial:

This looks amazing and everyone loves it. We’re super excited—it turned out amazing as I knew it would.

T-shirt design and poster I was hired to create for the popular band, the Moonshine Bandits, where I was asked to draw the band members as skeletons driving their iconic off-road limo.

All finished with this tiki skateboard painting I did for a private collector. First time I've done something like this, so there were a lot of stumbles along the way, but I had a great time with it.

Description:

Album cover design I created for the band A La Carte showing a disgusting restaurant with eyeballs, fingers, brains, rats, and even a toilet.

The band wanted me to create an album cover with a lot of gross details, as if a fine restaurant was being run by a deranged cannibal. The illustration covers the front and back cover. I also had the privilege to design the band’s logo as well, which was made to look like a goopy, drippy mess.

Very excited to share this really unique project.  Custom skateboard deck I will be painting on with acrylic for a private collector. He gave me completely free reign, which happens very rarely.

Light the Lamp T-shirt Design

Client:

Circle City Foundation

Description:

I was commissioned to design this t-shirt for the Circle City Foundation’s Light the Lamp Against Cancer event which depicts a hockey fan in a hot Indiana summer daydreaming about playing hockey in the wintertime.

It was a pleasure to work with an organization that does so many great things in their fight against cancer. I had a lot of fun putting a little spin on my beach graphics, by illustrating a lake beach in the mountains. This design was set up for full-color, so I could really go nuts.

Client Testimonial:

Fantastic!  I’m really happy with how this has turned out. You really captured what I was going for!

-Mark Barnhart

Inking a skull soldier in Clip Studio Paint on the Wacom Cintiq – I'm really enjoying working with my stippling brushes to make shading quicker – works great for silk-screening too.#skullart #skulls #skulldesign #darkartist #darkart #skullartwork#art #inkdrawing #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

I sketched this Dragon-Slaying King for a client, but we ended up going in a different direction, unfortunately. It's tough sometimes when you have to abandon something you're relaly excited about – but that's just part of the gig. What should I do with this artwork?#art #fantasyart @conceptsketch #dragonart #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #tshirtdesign #tshirtart #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

Silk-screen illustration I created of a rattle snake clutching a rifle for a t-shirt design that should be available at Cabella's sometime soon – Snakes are so challenging to draw. Even when you think you've got everything in the right place, then come the scales. So. Many. Damn. Scales. This design is available for licensing if anyone has a use for it – message me.#patrioticart #usflag #patriotic #donttreadonme #merica #2ndamendment #gunart #huntingart#appareldesign #tshirtdesign #tshirtartist #screenprintart #dtg
