Description:

Listenable Records hired me to illustrated this Black Sabbath tribute album cover of their red winged demon.

I tried to pump as much of my style into it, while still keeping the pose close enough that fans of the early Black Sabbath material would get it.  We put some headphones on the demon for fun.  Always a pleasure working with these guys!

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!

Dumb and Dumber Zombie Tribute Illustration Process

T-Shirt illustration I created as a tribute to one of the greatest films ever made: Dumb and Dumber. The piece is called “Dead and Deader,” and features Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carey) as decaying zombie corpses.

The t-shirt illustration was set up for silk-screening using 6 colors. It was a challenge to find the right color scheme for all these items (the iconic tuxedos, the worm farm, the Shaggin Wagon) with such limited color. But I’m very happy with how it turned out. I also recorded a speed-painting tutorial for my YouTube channel that I’m excited to share.

Check out this speed-painting tutorial video I created showing the entire illustration process:

Ink Work-in-progress

The design is now all inked and ready to color.  Coloring is one of the least time-consuming parts of the process for me, but it adds the most to the illustration.

Detail shot of a pretty bird…pretty bird.

Here are a few detail shots of the illustration.  I tried to cram as many Dumb and Dumber references that I could into the illustration.  Here’s Petey, not looking so good.

I really enjoyed drawing the Shaggin Wagon – I hope they bring it back in the sequel.

T-Shirt Mockup

And here is the final illustration!  I’m very please with how it turned out.  I created two versions:  a full-color version, and a silk-screen version.  The differences are subtle, but in the silk-screen version, I had to come up with creative ways to create a lot of depth and color using only six colors.

Description:

Iron Maiden, and the artist behind their amazing artwork, Derek Riggs, have always been a huge inspiration for everything that I do. So I was super excited when I was hired by Listenable Records to create an illustration tribute to Iron Maiden’s first album, “Killers,” for an upcomming sampler that would be given out at Iron Maiden concerts in Europe. I tried to cram in as much of my own style as I could.
