Mechanized metal skeleton illustration for dye-sublimated wrestling singlets.

All-over-print Dye Sublimation Metal Skeleton Singlet Design

All-over-print dye-sublimated wrestling singlet design I created for BlueChip wrestling. The design is meant to be a reimagining of the classic bold shapes and pin striping that is common in singlets. I tried to give it a lot of depth, and keep it very customizable to different team colors.

I created this as part of a series of wrestling singlet designs for BlueChip’s summer catalog. The designs will also be available on fight shorts. I find it so enjoyable working with dye sublimation, because the color and detail reproduction is fantastic, and I don’t have to worry about the head-scratching that comes from working with silk-screen.

Thank you very much, I think everything turned out great!

Steampunk family character design and robots

Steampunk Character Concepts

I created these concept illustrations of a steampunk family of adventurers for an educational publisher called Bogardpress. The character designs will be used to illustrate their educational materials and lessons. Each year the team uses a different theme and concept to tie their lessons together. I really enjoyed the whole process, from developing the characters in sketches, to coloring and rendering the final versions. I tried to add a bit of style into the characters to keep them from becoming generic. I especially enjoyed creating the robot character.

Lincoln v. Douglas Motorcycle Rally Poster

The IAFF recently commissioned me to create a poster for an upcoming rally in Ottawa, IL, the location of the historical Lincoln v. Douglas debates. I thought it would be fun to draw Lincoln and Douglas speeding through time on two motorcycles swinging chains and pipes at each other. I’m a historian at heart. The IAFF Motorcycle Group mascot is seen far back in the historic streets of Ottawa.

Patriotic eagle silk-screen t-shirt design.

Eagle T-Shirt Design for Smith & Wesson #2

I was thrilled to be hired to create artwork for a new line of apparel for Smith & Wesson, featuring silk-screen illustrations of big angry eagles. It was a really fun challenge drawing the eagles, which I’ve always found difficult. Need to invest in a pet eagle for reference. The designs all needed to stay under six colors, which is always a challenge as soon as you introduce an american flag into the design (which eats up three colors right away). I used halftones wherever I could to limit the total number of colors.

The designs will be available in Smith & Wesson’s catalog, as well as in many retailers, such as Cabela’s.

Laser-engraved skateboard design of a team of zombie superheroes

Zombie Superhero Laser-Engraved Skateboard

I was recently hired to conceptualize and illustrate a team of Superhero zombies to be laser-engraved into skateboards by Revenga. It was challenging to pump a ton of detail in the board, while making sure to keep the lines bold enough as to not cause much trouble in the engraving process.

While designing, I also had to structure the design so the layout could be changed to fit a T-Shirt as well. I made sure to keep the characters masked on separate layers, that way moving them around at the end was relatively easy.

We also created a silk-screen color version for boards and shirts, using around 6 colors.

Robot samurai album cover illustration.

Listenable Records Sampler Album Cover

Always a pleasure working with my friends at Listenable Records. For this year’s sampler featuring the labels best tracks, we chose to pay tribute to the classic Defenders of the Faith album cover from Judas Priest. I thought it would be cool to draw a samurai in the same art style and color scheme as that record, and really give it a nice retro theme, with bright primary colors. Really dig the way this came out – might make a great sticker.

Detailed children’s book illustration of animals at a construction site.

Construction Animals Children’s Book

This is a detailed series of illustrations I created for a children’s book teaching kids about construction. Each double-page spread was packed with animal characters, vehicles, tools, and activities. The book challenges kids to hunt out objects and solve problems within the illustration, so I had to draw everything in a way that certain elements were intentionally hard to find. I had a lot of fun with this, because I had a lot of freedom to design the characters and draw them in my style.

Giant skull made of smaller skulls illustration for dye-sublimated wrestling singlets.

All-over-print Dye Sublimation Face of Skulls Singlet Design

All-over-print dye-sublimated wrestling singlet design I created for BlueChip wrestling. This design is easily my favorite in the seires, and also the most time-consuming. I illustrated these giant skulls made up of probably a hundred smaller skulls, and lit the whole thing up by their glowing eyes. It was challenging, but I’m thrilled with how it turned out.

I created this as part of a series of wrestling singlet designs for BlueChip’s summer catalog. The designs will also be available on fight shorts. I find it so enjoyable working with dye sublimation, because the color and detail reproduction is fantastic, and I don’t have to worry about the head-scratching that comes from working with silk-screen.

Album Cover Illustration for the UK Band The Jokers

This is a fun album cover illustration I created for a hard rock band called the Jokers for their new album, Hurricane. The idea was to have the band in a classic-looking car flying through the air to their next gig, and causing a hurricane behind them, destroying London below them. I tried to hide a lot of detail into the design swirling around them in the hurricane, like roadies, amps, guitars, and british artifacts. The band needed the album art in a really short amount of time, but we pulled it off in time, and they were quite happy with the result.

Mad scientist mechanic working on a frankenstein hotrod monster car

Mad Scientist and Frankenstein Hot-Rod T-Shirt

I created this mad scientist character for an auto-repair shop whose specialty is custom built choppers and hotrods. The brand wanted a dark but playful design that illustrated them as a blend of mechanic and mad scientist. I thought it would be cool to show a frankenstein-ed hotrod on the operating table behind the mad scientist, as he raises his creation up to the lightning. This design was created for direct-to-garment printing.

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.

DIY Celebrity Caricatures on the Beach

This is a T-Shirt illustration I created for a new brand called The Reno Life, which celebrates and promotes the work of several DIY TV personalities. The illustration features caricatures of DIY celebrities Anitra Mecadon, Jason Cameron, Chris Grundy, Jeff Devlin, and Stephen Fanuka on the beach. It was a challenge to fit all of these characters into such a tight space, while still keeping them recognizable.

I wanted to create a an illustration as a sample to try to get work from young-adult fantasy book publishers, a market that I’d like to do more work in.

Sci-fi fantasy poster illustration with mutant frogs and strange heroes

Strange Kids Club Action/Sci-Fi Poster Illustration

I was hired by Strange Kids Club Magazine to illustrated a promotional poster featuring characters from their upcoming magazine. I loved every second of working on this. If you’re strange like me, and born in the 80s, then I don’t need to explain what’s going on here. The concept revolved around a fictional character called Bronarr, Space Barbarian (!) – loosely based on 80s Saturday morning cartoons like Masters of the Universe, as well as camp classic 70s retro sci-fi/fantasy films like Hell Comes To Frogtown.

Dark illustration of a skull, crow, and zombie for an album cover

Dark Skull Album Cover for Brazilian Heavy Metal Band John Wayne

Album cover I illustrated for the Brazilian heavy metal band John Wayne (named after John Wayne Gacy – not the other guy). It was a great pleasure working on this with the band, as they gave me a lot of freedom, and I set upon the design without much planning, and tried to let it flow. This album cover is the first in a set of two albums, that when placed together will form one cohesive image. This album represents the dark side, while the following album will have a similar design, but mirrored, and “lighter.”

Humorous and dark Illustration of a killer bee with a chainsaw

Killer Bee with Chainsaw

This illustration was for a private commission for a fan’s husband (I believe as an anniversary present). She needed a large illustration to fit on two facing panels in a hallway, and wanted it to be fun and creepy at the same time. We came up with this idea of drawing a giant killer bee wielding a chainsaw in a ruined city as bystanders flee in fear. I chose colors that would compliment the existing scheme in their home. She was thrilled with how it turned out. I printed them out on two large 36 inch square panels. I’m thinking about making stickers of the chainsaw-bee.

Laser-engraved skateboard design of a team of zombie superheroes

How to ink zombies for a laser-cut skateboard in Manga Studio

Here’s a video of how to ink for a laser-cut skateboard.

I was recently hired to conceptualize and illustrate a team of Superhero zombies to be laser-engraved into skateboards by Revenga (www.revengaskateboards.com).

While designing, I also had to structure the design so the layout could be changed to fit a T-Shirt as well. I made sure to keep the characters masked on separate layers, that way moving them around at the end was relatively easy.

We also created a silk-screen color version for boards and shirts, using around 6 colors.

Thanks for watching, please post any questions in the comments.

To check out more of my work, or to hire me:

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.

Client Testimonial:
If you were closer, I’d hug you!!! We absolutely love it.

Sledge-Hammer Skeleton T-shirt Design

I created this illustration of a skeleton with a sledgehammer for a new apparel brand showcasing the work of DIY television personalities, called The Reno Life. I tried to add a lot of my own style to the skeleton, and keep it tough while not scaring the kiddies away. We did a female version as well – and I found drawing skeletons to look female is a bit challenging when you don’t have many… parts…. to work with. This design was set up for full-color direct-to-garment printing.

Bottle label design for tea featuring illustration.

Ring Thip Thai Tea Packaging

I was recently hired by Ring Thip to reinvent their packaging for their Thai Tea.  They wanted a bolder and more contemporary design, as they make a push to reach more retail markets.

I found this project to be very challenging, because the subject matter was so different, and I had limited space to make an impact.

Each flavor will have a different illustration emerging from the ring.

I created the artwork in Manga Studio, and colored it in Adobe Photoshop.

I was hired to illustrate this T-Shirt design for one of my favorite clients, Darkhorse Fightwear, for their new line of MMA apparel. The design was set up for silk-screen using three colors, and illustrated in Manga Studio and Adobe Photoshop. The design was inspired by a previous illustration I created a few years ago – it was fun to revisit it and test out some new skills while illustrating it. The design features a skull in the center with wings and chains surrounding.

I created this full graphic wrap for a company that manufactures office scanning equipment in conjunction with Twist Creative Parners. The client wanted to wrap their hummer in a design that would attract attention, and make their product look cool. We came up with the idea of having an alien invastion blasting a hole through an office cubicle, with the office scanners sitting in a pile of wreckage, perfectly in tact. I drew up two comic book style office characters to tie everything together.

The finished graphics were printed on vinyl and will be wrapped to cover every inch of the black humvee. It was a pleasure working on this!

Custom illustration I created for a bar in the UK called The Parish. We designed their superhero mascot to be present on all their advertising, posters, and signage at the bar.

Drawn and inked in Manga Studio, and colored in Adobe Photoshop.

I created this in Manga Studio and Adobe Photoshop.

This is a fun illustration I created of a tiki man riding a dirtbike for the brand Accidental Broadcast. The brand centers around a popular Youtube personality, Kalani Prince, who films the island of Hawaii from the back of his dirtbike.

Kalani gave me a lot of freedom with the design. Since this was the brand’s first design, I thought it would be a good idea to introduce his personality as this Tiki character, with an attractive hula girl hanging tight.

I also designed the a logo to match the design for his brand.

I thought it would be cool to illustrate the labels as if the characters were from a dark, fantasy kingdom.

In addition, I also designed the logo for the series, Valgous: Slayer, and even designed the point-of-purchase display. The series will be distributed and sold to vaping outlets around the country.

We are also planning a line of t-shirts featuring the characters to help promote the new line.

Barrel Of Evil Monkeys T-Shirt Illustration

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.

Custom illustration I created of an angry Jaguar head for sports mascots provided by Great Dane Graphics. Since much of my artwork is lineart driven, it’s fun to sometimes deviate from that style and explore digital painting a bit more. It can be tricky to translate my style into digital painting, but I tried my best by giving this jaguar a lot of character and attitude. This design was created in Adobe Photoshop and Manga Studio 5, and will be used for T-Shirts and uniforms. Available for licensing from Great Dane Graphics.

Custom mascot character design I created for a vinyl wrap for a bus, and other apparel for a club in Norway, depicting an angry gun-toting gangster. The client approached me looking for a character and logo design for their club, and wanted something intimidating but also kind of fun.

I created this graphic for the “Crooks,” and provided the final graphics in different pieces and colors, so they could get as many uses from it as possible.

Client:

Virus Vodka

Description:

Zombie apocalypse poster I illustrated for the new Vodka brand, Virus Vodka to celebrate their release. The idea was to show a horde of zombies passing by the people drinking the other brands of vodka, and eating only the girl drinking Virus Vodka – because it just tastes better! I provided the client with signed prints, and animated gifs showing the process of the illustration as material to help them promote the brand and gain interest on social media.

Please drink responsibly during a zombie apocalypse.

Bear Volleyball Player Mascot

Bear Volleyball Player Mascot

Cartoon mascot illustration of a Bear playing playing basketball I created for Great Dane Graphics and their children’s sports line.  The graphic will be used for T-Shirts and other products for kids’ sport teams.  The client wanted these designs to be fully rendered digital paintings, without lineart, which is not the typical style I work in.  I’m happy with how they turned out.

Skeleton Rider Patriot T-Shirt Design

Client:

Hard Ride Clothing

Description:

T-Shirt illustration I created for Hard Ride Saloon, featuring a skeleton patriot riding a dire wolf away from a burning Illuminati pyramid. Try saying that three times fast! The client’s idea was to have the patriot character changing the sheep into wolves as he rides past, waving the american flag. This design is 100% ‘Merica!
