Hogan and Andre Drinking

Client:

Hulk Hogan

Description:

Another design I created for Hulk Hogan’s beach bar, featuring the great Andre the Giant, out-drinking the Hulkster in a drinking contest on the beach.

It’s always a fun honor to work with TWO sports icons in one design. It was a lot of fun translating the pro wrestlers into a more fun, cartoony style.

Scary Wolf Crest

Client:

Ron Clark Academy

Description:

The award-winning charter school, the Ron Clark Academy, hired me to create this apparel design based on one of their school mascots, the wolf.

Nothing about the RCA is ordinary, so they wanted a school t-shirt that looked tough and ferocious, with a lot of detail and color. This design was set up for limited color silk-screening.

Sexy Girl with Gun Logo

Client:

Description:

Logo design I created for the online gun and armor shop, Technical Tactical, featuring their new mascot, this lovely lady holding a giant rifle.

No subtlety necessary! I love jobs like this every once and awhile, where you don’t have to think too much. We knew going in we just needed a badass character, attractive, and deadly, drawn in a colorful and bold style to represent the brand.

Client Testimonial:

It looks great! I really love it

Moonshine Bandits T-Shirt

Client:

Moonshine Bandits

Description:

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.

We chose to take a Big Daddy Roth approach, and make the characters larger than life so we could really focus on the small characteristics (such as the tattoos, hair-styles, etc) that make them identifiable. Set up for silk-screening with under six colors.

Client Testimonial:

Love! Thanks and look forward to working together again.

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. The collector wanted the whole thing to be a surprise, so he never even saw a sketch. The first time he saw the deck design was when he opened the package on his front door! That really added a lot to the whole experience.#skateboardart #deckart #skaterart #deckdesign #skateboarding#tikiart #tikibar #beachart #tikitotem #surfart #tikiartist #beach

Tiki Character Paddle Boarding Logo

Client:

Michael Jordan

Description:

I was hired to create this logo for the outdoor sports outfitter, H20 Sports Zone, of a tiki chief riding a paddle board on the ocean.

I love working with tiki characters and making them do fun things – paddle-boarding has become hugely popular, so it was fun to draw him doing that. The logo was created both in color and black and white so that it would be useable in many different applications.

Client Testimonial:

Oh Wow, it looks sick. Thank you!

Box Busters Dog Character Logo

Client:

Description:

This big green dog character ripping through a box I drew is for a logo design for the distribution service, Box Busters.

The client wanted something over-the-top and in-your-face to appeal to his customer base, who are anything but subtle. I drew a caricature of his pet. The business is cannabis themed, but we had to find creative ways to not exploit that theme too much.

Client Testimonial:

Wow…. phenomenal….I’m stoked

Gross and disgusting restaurant

A La Carte Album Cover

Client:

A La Carte

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.

Client Testimonial:

We couldn’t be happier with the atmosphere you captured on this piece.

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!

This illustration I created for Listenable Records Hellfest album cover is a tribute to the iconic Judas Priest album cover of a mechanical eagle swooping down from the sky.

It was hard to improve on such a masterpiece, so I just tried to reinvent the eagle in my own style, with a little more modern technology.

Description:

This was a really fun series of apparel designs I illustrated for new outdoor lifestyle brand called Camel Toes, featuring an athletic camel mascot interacting with his female fans in different sports and fitness situations.

We tried to squeeze in as much activity, detail, and characters into each design that we could. The mascot himself was carefully designed in a way that made it easy to draw him doing all sorts of different activities. I also designed the logo and text style for the brand.

Ericsson Viking Mascots

Client:

Ericsson

Description:

The telecommunications company Ericsson hired me to design two viking mascots that they could use for internal marketing that looked like linemen with their typical set of linemen gear.

It was a fun challenge to merge the two different eras and costume styles. I designed a male and female, and layered everything in a way to make it easy to reuse the graphics for a lot of different applications for the company. We started with a series of three sketches for each mascot, to flesh out how we wanted the character to look, and what pose we wanted them in.

I designed this rabid monkey in a racing suit for a Spanish Monster Truck driver that will wrap the entire vehicle. Can’t wait to see this thing caked in mud! A lot of the competing monster trucks were using simple vector graphics, so the driver came to me to create something more detailed and with more character.

Galaxy Skull Album Cover

Client:

Ammannati Band

Description:

Check out this evil skull emerging from the galaxy to devour the earth, for the band called Ammannait! This is one of my favorite album covers I designed ever! I sketched a bunch of concepts that I thought the band would like ever listening to their music. This one was the simplest, but definitely the strongest. Rather than adding a lot of details, I focused more on the color scheme and a strong layout, and I think it paid off well.

Client Testimonial:

No words, AWESOME! You are the best!!!!

-Damiano

Lead Singer, Ammannati band

Our design won FIRST PLACE! This wrap design I created using my tiki artwork won first place in a vehicle wrap competition 360 Carshow!Diamond wraps did a hell of a great job printing this on vinyl and wrapping their beautiful truck in the design. They even customized an amazing bamboo truck bed that looks just beautiful. Using their photos and measurements, I created a template of the vehicle, and carefully designed the text and artwork layout to fill the unique shape of this low-rider truck. So proud to have won first place!#wrap #vinylwrap #decal #tiki #beach #tikiart

Skull logo design I illustrated for this cool company called Chrome Candy that manufactures custom handles for pinball machines, and other cool arcade parts. We went through a couple sketches to get the right look at the beginning, and ended up with this happy skull chomping after a piece fo pinball candy…..#logodesign #logodesigner #logoconcept #logoart #logoinspiration#art #originalartwork #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq

Anyone familiar with the Unlimited Off-Road shows that happen across the US? I got to design their logo for the Crystal Beach event in Texas – really nice and fun guys who run this thing. Always fun to explore totally new industries as a freelancer and learn the culture.#logodesign #logodesigner #logoconcept #logoart #logoinspiration #jeeplife #atv #unlimitedoffroad

This was a rejected sketch I was working on for a client (just the result of a miscommunication). I really dug it – I might finish it up sometime in the future. I save all the rejected sketches I have in a sad, depressing folder of shame. I find I can often reuse most ideas in other situtations, so it helps to never throw them away completely. Does anyone do anything similar?‍…#art #alligator #jungleart #mangastudio #clipstudiopaint #illustration #tshirtdesign #tshirtart #hireanillustrator #freelanceartist #wacomcintiq
