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.

Client Testimonial:
They look just as amazing! Everyone is giving compliments about the graphic because it’s very cool!

Science Fiction Album Cover Design for Valence

Client:

Valence

Description:

Album cover I created for the progressive metal band Valence for their upcoming album, “Laser Baron.” The band created a story about a scientist who inadvertently opens a wormhole and disrupts the world as we know it. My job was to create an illustration that followed the theme, and stylistically complimented the music. Check out the album, I highly recommend it.
