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.

Race Monkey Monster Truck character

Client:

Hollywood Motor Show

Description:

My artwork has been used on a lot of big things – now I can say that my artwork is on a Monster Truck! I designed this rabid monkey in a racing suit for a Spanish Monster Truck driver that will wrap the entire vehicle. Can’t wait to see this thing caked in mud! A lot of the competing monster trucks were using simple vector graphics, so the driver came to me to create something more detailed and with more character.

Client Testimonial:

Thank you! I really like your design!! You do great work!

Vinyl wrapped zombie helmet I illustrated for Blaze Artworks’ new line of monster themed motorcycle helmets.
It was a fun challenge to try to figure out how to illustrate something in two dimensions that would ultimately wrap around a spherical 3D object. The client was kind enough to send me a helmet that I was able to physically trace and photograph to create a template, using some tricks I learned at my first professional art job at XGX Racing more than a decade ago. Thrilled with how this turned out!

Lochness Monster Band Poster Design

Client:

Lochness Monster – Justin Shaner

Description:

Silk-screen poster illustration of a happy Loch Ness Monster I created for the band Lochness Monster.  I had a blast working on this.  The band gave me a ton of freedom on this design, and I came up with the idea of having the Loch Ness Monster looking friendly, with a severed arm dangling from its mouth, and the collected trophy/cameras of tourists hung around his neck.  He’s an elusive fella!  The design was set up for silk-screening using around 5 colors, created primarily for promotional posters and apparel for the band.

Client Testimonial:

They look awesome!!  Thanks, really great job on this!!

Description:

The nice folks at Scholastic hired me to draw concept illustrations for characters in a redesign of an educational app called Sushi Monster, in which kids solve math problems with a friendly but terrifying sushi chef.  I explored a lot of different character sizes, shapes, and attitudes.  We initially thought the best direction would be to create the main characters as zombies, and the supporting characters as other types of monsters.  Unfortunately, due to a gypsy curse, the project was cancelled in the early stages before we had a chance to really get going.

Logo design I created for an automotive repair shop and racing company called G&L Diesel, featuring a monster character holding a turbo.

The client hired me to create a sharp looking logo and a humorous mascot character. After submitting a few concept sketches, we picked this version of the monster: a horned, and mischievious looking creature holding a turbo and zipped into a racing suit.

The logo was provided in several different variations, colors, and formats to maximize the client’s usage.
