Album cover I illustrated for Penny One, inspired by a sort of pulp graphic comic book style that was pretty new for me.
I really enjoyed working with Alex (whose likeness is at the computer mixing) – always fun to work with other creatives.

Horror Movie and Heavy Metal Character Designs

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.

Evil Superhero T-Shirt Illustrat

Evil Superhero T-Shirt Illustration

I was recently hired to design a new T-Shirt for the Yellow Stripe Records brand in Portugal. After working with a couple of concepts, we decided on the idea of having a Superhero has gone mad, and destroyed the city he once he protected. Deep! He’s crouched on a pile of wrecked keyboards, speakers, and dj equipment.

This t-shirt was set up for silk-screening, using three colors.Evil Superhero T-Shirt Illustration
