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!

Robot Zombie Disc Golf Design


Client:

Discraft

Description:

Another fun design I created for the leaders of disc golf equipment, Discraft, of a crazed zombie cyborg, because cyborg’s are zombies, too!

We designed a full-color version, as well as a single color foil option. The discs have become collectors editions, and I’m always thrilled when Discraft sends me a box of the discs with my artwork on them. Really cool to see the art come to life!

Crimshaw Metal Band Monsters Album Cover


Client:

Crimshaw Band

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.

Tommy Justice

Description:

Tommy Justice hired me to create this limited color skull and roses t-shirt design for his special-lady fans.

He’s got a great retro 80s hair-metal vibe that I tried to inject a little into the design.

Illustrated Battle Between Heavy Metal and Horror Characters for Website Background

Client:
M.A.S. Productions

Description:
I illustrated this dark detailed illustration of an epic battle between Freddy, Leatherface, Nosferatu, The Excorsist, Frankenstein, Kirk Hammet, Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Corey Taylor, and more for a documentary on the history of Metal and Horror.

I was hired by Producer Mike Schiff of M.A.S. Productions to create an illustration of some of the most iconic figures in horror and heavy metal engaging in an epic battle. The image was used to promote a documentary they produced which explores the history of heavy metal music, horror films, and how the two genres have merged together over time.

The documentary features interviews with Alice Cooper, Kirk Hammett, Corey Taylor, plus a ton of other heavy metal stars, along with huge names in the horror industry. It was so great getting the chance to illustrate these iconic figures, including Freddy, Leatherface, Nosferatu, Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Kirk Hammet, and more. Pieces of the illustration were also used for an animation promoting the documentary.

Client Testimonial:
Incredible job on this. I knew you’d create something amazing , and holy crap is this good.

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!

T-Shirt illustration of Zombie Hands in the moonlight for Spiral Direct

Zombie Hands In Moonlight T-Shirt

Client:

Spiral Direct

Description:

Zombie T-Shirt I created for Spiral Direct, depicting a pile of zombie hands in the moonlight. It was an immense privilege to work among the talent powerhouse that is Spiral Direct. The design was quite complex, due to all the different hands, and the requirement that it be highly rendered.

Drawing hands has always been a challenge for me, so I compiled a mockup of photos of my own hands for reference. Luckily I have skinny little claws for hands!
