Album Cover Illustration of Demon Army

Client:

The Unbroken

Description:

The New York band, The Unbroken hired me to create this insanely detailed illustration of crusaders clashing with a horde of demon soldiers, parting in the middle to show our Unbroken hero in the middle of the fray.

I love working on projects like this where I can just put my headphones on and get absorbed in all the details of each creature and soldier. It’s a challenge to keep it from becoming a tangled mess. I tried to keep all the colors limited so that the focus would rest on the solitary warrior in the middle.

I also update the band’s logo to match the illustration.

Client Testimonial:

Absolutely amazing! The guys love it!

Gang Beasts Russ Logo

Description:

If you haven’t heard of it, basically russefeiring involves an entire class of Norwegian students renting a bus (a Russebuss), painting every inch of it with really cool street art, and then partying in it night and day for an entire month during graduation.  The different classes wear their designs ever where they go as they clash with rival classes.  I’ve done a bunch of these now, and really enjoy it.

Military Zombies in the midst of a massive war. What’s worse than a traditional zombie? Flying zombies piloting attack copters. This was a fun one!

I had fun creating a Russ Logo based on the Pacific War. The design was for apparel and a vehicle wrap for the russefeiring tradition. If you haven’t heard of it, basically russefeiring involves an entire class of Norwegian students renting a bus (a Russebuss), painting every inch of it with really cool street art, and then partying in it night and day for an entire month during graduation.

All-over-print Dye Sublimation War Machine Singlet Design

All-over-print dye-sublimated wrestling singlet design I created for BlueChip wrestling. This design was inspired by futurustic combat like in Gears of War. We created this future soldier character standing in front of a ruined cityscape. I reached out to a talented digital painter named Luciano Fleitas to help me with the background because I was in a crunch. I’m really happy with how this came together.

I created this as part of a series of wrestling singlet designs for BlueChip’s summer catalog. The designs will also be available on fight shorts. I find it so enjoyable working with dye sublimation, because the color and detail reproduction is fantastic, and I don’t have to worry about the head-scratching that comes from working with silk-screen.
