I was hired to create this detailed map for Iron Horse Mud Ranch, known as one of the best off-road parks in the country.
Located in Perry, Florida, this sprawling estate hosts monster trucks, ATVs, and just about anything with wheels on an insane course of obstacles, tracks, and millions of gallons of mud.
The client submitted aerial and onsite photos that I pieced together into a blueprint for the map. Once we had the locations of everything fixed, I laid out all the elements and hand-illustrated all the cars, trucks, booths, tents, and other elements in Adobe Illustrator as a vector graphic. The map will be used as a printed brochure for guests, on their website, and on a 9 foot tall banner to display at the park.
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.
Love! Thanks and look forward to working together again.
Custom T-Shirt illustration I created for the Hot Rod Power Tour Kansas City 2017.
Always a fun challenge to draw cars, which can be very hard to get right. I had to us a lot of reference photos for this one to get the details of the models just right (or close enough anyway).

Custom T-Shirt illustration I created for the Hot Rod Power Tour in the Southwest I was hired to design.
I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to illustrated cars, so this was a particular challenge.But I hope I pulled it off accurately.If not, I made sure to cover it up with plenty of flames to distract, and threw a steer skull in their for good measure.

After trying several other sticker printers, I found that Vinyl Disorder was the best by far.
I recently set out to make custom stickers of my artwork made for promotion, and decided to try Vinyl Disorder, because some of my favorite artists were using them.
I did a mid-air jump-kick when a giant box of stickers came from Vinyl Disorder recently. The kiss-cut vinyl stickers had great color reproduction, came super-quick (not a single sticker damaged), and the cuts were perfect. Great customer service as well – I couldn’t be more pleased.
I tried a lot of other sticker companies, and they are clearly the best in my opinion. I highly recommended them for any artist looking to get stickers made of their work!
Here are some more features I loved about Vinyl Disorder:
I received a quote the same day I contacted them, even though my request was a little different than anything on their site.
They printed 100s of kiss-cut vinyl stickers of over 30 different designs of my artwork in a really short period of time
The stickers are extremely high quality. Really tough, thick vinyl.
Great color reproduction
Each set was individually wrapped with a sample sticker stuck to the bag so it was easy to see which stack was which design.
None of the stickers arrived bent or tarnished
They sent the order to me very quickly – especially considering how large my order was
One of the lowest prices I found (I got quotes from five other sticker companies)
Unlike other sticker shops, I really liked that I could order a really low run of each design (in this case, just 50).
Worked with my PSD files, with minimum setup on my part.
Thanks to Vinyl Disorder, I’m able to offer delightfully stickable sets of my artwork – take a look!

Professional Illustrator Brian Allen reviews the new Wacom Cintiq Pro 24″ (non-touch). I have been using the new Wacom Cintiq Pro 24″ extensively since early April 2018 and I love it! I upgraded from the Wacom Cintiq 24HD, which I used for over 6 years. I had high expectations for this digital drawing tablet and […]
