West Coast Pitbull

Description:

West Coast Pitbull, a huge brand that caters to all things pitbull, hired me to create a series of apparel designs featuring the Pitbull in all his badass glory.

Our second design had me drawing a pitbull skull in a decorative Ace of Spades card design. I decided to add a lot of detail to the skull, but push the other design elements into the background to help it pop out.

The next West Coast Pitbull t-shirt design I created imagines a dark future where humanity’s only hope for survival rests in the paws of cybernetically enhanced Pitbulls designed to hunt out their enemies. I drew this pitbull on a pile of skulls because it just felt right.

I illustrated this crazy and horrifying clown for West Coast Pitbull’s new apparel series. This was a digital painting created in Adobe Photoshop – I decided to leave out all the line art in the design and try to go for a more realistic look.

Cavity Colors

Description:

Cavity Colors hired me to create this officially licensed t-shirt illustration of the Book of the Dead, the Necronomicon, from one of my favorite horror movies ever, Evil Dead 2.

I took great care to make the illustration look like the specific book from the movie (the books all look slightly different in all the other movies). I made sure to use limited colors so it would silk-screen nicely. Very happy with how this turned out!

Client Testimonial:

I’m so excited for this design. Looks so good!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

Description:

The heavy metal band Crimshaw commissioned me to illustrate each member of the band as classic movie monsters based on their personalities for their new album.

It’s always such a fun challenge to draw the likenesses of people I’ve never met, just based on a few photographs. Luckily, turning them into savage creatures masks any errors.

Description:

Digitally painted t-shirt illustration of an evil skull with wings and barbaric weapons I created for the dark apparel company Spiral Direct. This was inspired by a similar design I had done in the past, but taken in a more realistic rendering direction.  It was a lot of fun exploring the same subject matter in a different style – it’s a great way to discover the limitations and strengths of a particular method.

Illustration of a zombie police officer I created in Manga Studio and Adobe Photoshop for a motorcycle club of state troopers for their club seal and apparel. This was based on a similar design I created a couple years ago with a digitally painted zombie gunslinger. It was a lot of fun to revisit the same concept, but in a different style, and with my skills improved a little.

I created this mascot and logo design for a team of drag-racer’s new line of merchandise and apparel. The client wanted a tough, dark, militant mascot character that could later be drawn in other situations and shenanigans. We went through a few sketches at the beginning that were a bit too light, and eventually arrived at RAD, the skeletal, drag-racing warrior you see before you! The mascot and logo was prepared for both limited color silk-screening and full-color printing, to maximize the usage.

Gargoyle graphic in stormy sky for vehicle wraps.

Gargoyle Graphic Wrap

I designed and illustrated this angry gargoyle busting out of its stone skin for a line of ATV and sled wraps put out by 393 Components. It was a challenge to position everything and design it in a way to make the design look interesting on as many different vehicle types and shapes as possible. I kept all the elements in layers so that the design could be modified if necessary to fit different wraps. I needed to make it look as different as possible from a previous gargoyle design I had done, so I came up with the idea of having the gargoyle a green-skinned creature bursting from stone, as if it was coming to life.

It was really cool to be working with graphic decals again for ATVs, because my first full-time position as an artist was at a custom decal shop called XGX Racing.

I was hired to create a T-Shirt design for a new apparel brand called Saltopus.  I was given only the direction that it had to include angry monkeys.  I illustrated a few concept sketches, and the client chose this concept, of evil monkeys emerging from an innocent looking Barrel of Monkeys toy.  The shirt was designed to be just one-color, which always poses a challenge.  Since I have no highlight or shading color, I really have to pack a lot of detail into the lineart and make sure it reads well from a distance.  We are both very happy with how this turned out.
