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.

Album Cover Illustration of Demon Army

Client:

The Unbroken

Description:

The New York band, The Unbroken hired me to create this insanely detailed illustration of crusaders clashing with a horde of demon soldiers, parting in the middle to show our Unbroken hero in the middle of the fray.

I love working on projects like this where I can just put my headphones on and get absorbed in all the details of each creature and soldier. It’s a challenge to keep it from becoming a tangled mess. I tried to keep all the colors limited so that the focus would rest on the solitary warrior in the middle.

I also update the band’s logo to match the illustration.

Client Testimonial:

Absolutely amazing! The guys love it!

Take A Break

Description:

Bass fishing illustrations I created for Take A Break clothing.  We wanted to take a sort of harder, more stylized and graphic edge to these designs, in contrast to the hyper-realistic renderings out there.  These were separated for silk-screen by the client – I took care to use only a limited number of colors in the design to make that easier.  I have a couple in my closet – they turned out great.

Paintball GOTCHA Spielfield

Description:

The artist Chogrin invited me to participate in a Spawn tribute book to celebrate the 25th anniversary, that would be presented to Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane.

I create the entire artwork on the iPad Pro in Clip Studio Paint. The screen is so bright I can work outside in my backyard – it’s great to take a break from the big screen every once in a while and stare at a little screen instead.

Shrunken Headz Hot Sauce

Description:

Shrunken Headz Hot Sauce hired me to illustrate the logo for their company, two labels, and even design a 3D plastic topper for all their bottles.

The first design was an evil demon clown with a grungy circus background, and the second was a creepy scarecrow with an apple for a head instead of a pumpkin. For the logo, I created this fun and creepy shrunken head with flames shooting out its ears. They liked the logo so much that they hired me to illustrate a turnaround illustration of the head so a 3D modeler could create a plastic capper for the bottles.

Client Testimonial:

Holy ***! That looks so wicked! Thanx Brian. Another masterpiece to add to your collection!

Client:

Simon Rivers

Description:

A private collector commissioned me to paint this one-of-a-kind tiki totem skateboard deck in acrylic on wood.

I designed the different tiki heads digitally in Clip Studio Paint, and then transferred the sketch to the board using carbon paper. Using acrylics, I blocked in the colors and began adding highlights and shadows. Then, when all the colors were added (which was the most time consuming part of the process), I painted the line work with a brush and black ink. The client was so much fun to work with – he wanted the entire thing to be a surprise, so he never saw any sketches or progress shots. I don’t do a lot of traditional painting, so I was unsure how it would turn out, but I’m very happy with it.

Illustrations and packaging design we created for The Pixels, an eJuice line inspired by classic games like Mario, Pac-Man, Minecraft, Tomb Raider, and more.

The client asked me to create parody mash-up illustrations of some of the most iconic video game characters mixed with elements from the eJuice flavors, for a line of Vaping products. I also designed the text, and the background of the packaging. Once we were finished, I also designed the logo and mascot character for the Pixels, which is a mad scientist, mixing together pixels.

Iron Horse Mud Ranch

Description:

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.

Client Testimonial:

It looks SUPER GOOD! I really appreciate it.

Description:

So excited to share this Game of Thrones illustration I created for Bam Box, featuring Daenerys Targaryen and the Night King and their dragons.

Every month, the geek loot box company, Bam Box, sends out awesome surprise packages to their subscribers featuring artwork and other merch from the latest pop culture obsessions. They gave me a ton of freedom with this commission. I thought it would be cool to draw the two characters and their dragons as opposing forces, and highlight the blue and red dicotomy of fire vs. ice. When I was finished, I signed close to a 1000 of the prints to be sent in their loot box.

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!

Diamond Wraps

Description:

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!

Client Testimonial:

Thanks again, Brian. I’ve been following you for a long time and have wanted to get this done through you forever, so it’s definitely and honor to have you be a part of this project.

Tim Fife

Description:

A private collector hired me to completely redesign his pinball playfield with a custom Breaking Bad theme.

We started the process by photographing the original Judge Dredd pinball table, and scanning it into the computer. I then started carefully drawing the different Breaking Bad characters into positions that would make sense for the game. I tried to draw as many characters as I could fit, like Gus Fring, Hank, Jesse Pinman, Mike, Saul Goodman, Skyler, Tuco, and of course, Heisenberg. The client had a bunch of great ideas, such as adding in the pink teddy bear, and the fly that drove Walter White on a frantic quest around the lab to extinguish it.

After the illustrations were complete, I laid out all the text, arrows, and ramps.

The project was insanely time-consuming, but I’m very proud of it. It will now be carefully printed onto the wood. Can’t wait to see it as part of a the whole Breaking Bad custom pinball cabinet!

Description:

Fun parody tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan rappers in a shoot-out. The design was for apparel and a vehicle wrap for the russefeiring tradition.  If you haven’t heard of it, basically russefeiring involves an entire class of Norwegian students renting a bus (a Russebuss), painting every inch of it with really cool street art, and then partying in it night and day for an entire month during graduation.  The different classes wear their designs ever where they go as they clash with rival classes.  I’ve done a bunch of these now, and really enjoy it.

Album cover illustration I created for the UK-based rock band The Jokers for their newest album “Voodoo,” illustrating an evil witchdoctor holding voodoo doll likenesses of each member of the band.

Always enjoy working with these guys – they don’t take themselves too seriously, and it’s exactly the kind of music I grew up with. It’s often very tricky to get so much of the scene into such a tiny space, but I’m happy with the composition we came up with. I love the crow chewing up the Union Jack.
