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.

Discraft Disc Golf Illustrations


 

Client:

Discraft

Description:

One of my favorite recent projects involved creating a series of labels for these disc golf frisbees by Discraft for their Halloween catalog.  We took their famous Bee mascot, and drew him in the likeness of famous movie monsters, like Leatherface and Jason from Friday the 13th.  We also created a one-color foil version too.

Digital inking Movie Monsters in Manga Studio 5 (with commentary)

How to digitally ink in Manga Studio 5 – Horror movie monsters and heavy metal character designs.

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.
