Medusa and Sugar Skull Girl Boat Wrap

Client:

Silver City Mobile Detailing

Description:

Vinyl boat wrap of a Sugar Skull girl with tentacles for hair and Medusa on a bed or roses I created for Silver City Mobile Detailing.

This might be the most complex vinyl wrap graphic I’ve ever worked on! So much time went into the detail of every snake, and every tentacle. To make things more complex, the size of the illustration was over 10 feet long! I created the line art in Clip Studio Paint, and then colored everything as a vector in Adobe Illustrator so everything would print nice and crisp.

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!

Zombie Toy Concept Art

Just got these vinyl zombie toys I designed!
A series of character concept turn-arounds I illustrated for a series of vinyl zombie figurines that will be manufactured and sold in a catalog.  This isn’t the first time I’ve created turn-arounds for figurines, but it’s the first zombie series.  I can’t wait to see how the final molded and painted models turn out.  To make this as efficient as possible, I first sent sketches to the client for just the front view.  Once approved, I used a 3D model in Manga Studio, positioned it close to the position of the front view, and then turned it to the side and back.  I then drew the other angles using that model as a reference.  Pretty effective little trick!

Review of Vinyl Disorder Custom Stickers

After trying several other sticker printers, I found that Vinyl Disorder was the best by far.

I recently set out to make custom stickers of my artwork made for promotion, and decided to try Vinyl Disorder, because some of my favorite artists were using them.

I did a mid-air jump-kick when a giant box of stickers came from Vinyl Disorder recently.  The kiss-cut vinyl stickers had great color reproduction, came super-quick (not a single sticker damaged), and the cuts were perfect.  Great customer service as well – I couldn’t be more pleased.

I tried a lot of other sticker companies, and they are clearly the best in my opinion.  I highly recommended them for any artist looking to get stickers made of their work!

Here are some more features I loved about Vinyl Disorder:

  • I received a quote the same day I contacted them, even though my request was a little different than anything on their site.
  • They printed 100s of kiss-cut vinyl stickers of over 30 different designs of my artwork in a really short period of time
  • The stickers are extremely high quality.  Really tough, thick vinyl.
  • Great color reproduction
  • Each set was individually wrapped with a sample sticker stuck to the bag so it was easy to see which stack was which design.
  • None of the stickers arrived bent or tarnished
  • They sent the order to me very quickly – especially considering how large my order was
  • One of the lowest prices I found (I got quotes from five other sticker companies)
  • Unlike other sticker shops, I really liked that I could order a really low run of each design (in this case, just 50).
  • Worked with my PSD files, with minimum setup on my part.

Thanks to Vinyl Disorder, I’m able to offer delightfully stickable sets of my artwork – take a look!
