Screaming Eagle Album Cover

Client:

Listenable Records

Description:

This illustration I created for Listenable Records Hellfest album cover is a tribute to the iconic Judas Priest album cover of a mechanical eagle swooping down from the sky.

It was hard to improve on such a masterpiece, so I just tried to reinvent the eagle in my own style, with a little more modern technology.

Vaping Label Characters

Client:

Frank Rigo – Vape Factory

Description:

It’s a fun challenge designing for such a small space (only a couple inches) – so I try to use bold colors and lines so you can really get a feel for the detail, and distinguish each flavor from the next.

Fire-fighter Leprechaun Cyborg St. Patrick’s Day T-Shirt

Cyborg Leprechaun fire-fighter I created for a St. Patrick’s day t-shirt template I illustrated for fire departments and t-shirt shops to license to celebrate their Irish Pride!

I try to design one of these each year, and I had a lot of fun with this one, trying to approach it differently by making the Leprechaun into a cyborg.  From the future?  Only time will tell.

Listenable Records Sampler Album Cover

Always a pleasure working with my friends at Listenable Records. For this year’s sampler featuring the labels best tracks, we chose to pay tribute to the classic Defenders of the Faith album cover from Judas Priest. I thought it would be cool to draw a samurai in the same art style and color scheme as that record, and really give it a nice retro theme, with bright primary colors. Really dig the way this came out – might make a great sticker.

Client Testimonial:
I love it, colours are perfect , there’s a vintage feel too in the logo and overall colours, it’s great!

Custom illustration for a growler brewsuit designed to look like a robot

Halftime Growler Brewsuit

Client:

Half-Time Brewing

Description:

I created this illustration for a brew suit for Half Time Brewing Company’s Growlers. A Brew Suit is a kind of a thermal case that zips up over a Growler to keep it cool.

This design was created to give the Growler a futuristic, mechanical look. I incorporated Half Time’s logo and signature red and gold color scheme wherever I could.

Silk-screen Growler illustration for Half Time Brewing

Client:

Halftime Beverage

Description:

Custom silk-screen illustration I created of a happy robot made of brewing equipment for Half Time Brewing Company’s 2014 Growler design.

It’s always a lot of fun working with Half Time. This project in particular was a fun challenge, and different than other beer label designs I’ve done, because the design is going to be silk-screened directly on the bottle, so I had to be careful to keep my colors limited, and to make sure that my details were not too fine. Half Time gave me a lot of freedom with the design, and we are both very happy with how it turned out.

Testimonial:

Brian Allen, an illustrator and graphic designer who is not only talented, personable and fun to work with but also understands how his piece of the puzzle must compliment the big picture.

Rosebud Editorial Illustration

Client:

Rosebud Magazine

Description:

Editorial commissioned by Rosebud Magazine. This custom illustration appeared in the magazine as a full page, accompanying an article about hydroponic tubing. The editors gave me a lot of freedom with the design. There only direction was that they wanted a robot made of tubing attacking a city. Looking forward to working with them again soon.
