Illustration of Hulk Hogan as Th

Thunderlips

Client:

Hulk Hogan

Description:

Another fun illustration I got to work on with Hulk Hogan – this one having fun with his character from the Rocky movies, Thunderlips.

Back when real men wore capes, we all witnessed The Ultimate Male vs The Ultimate Meatball fight in Rocky 3. For this design, I wanted to illustrate what Thunderlips’ fight poster might have looked like.

Blue Chip Athletics hired me to create this customize-able wrestling singlet apparel template they could offer to their different teams.

Futuristic soldier illustration for dye-sublimated wrestling singlets.

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.

Bluechip Athletics hired me to design and illustrate graphics for their Aggression apparel line for wrestlers. The first design was this evil gargoyle perched on a rooftop in a storm. Since the wrestling singlets are printed with dye-sublimation, I could design in full-color, and cover every inch of the fabric.

Honey Badger Wrestling Mascot

I was hired by a wrestling club to design a mascot for their apparel and website. Luckily, their mascot was one of the gnarliest creatures of the animal kingdom: the honey-badger. We explored a few different sketch variations, and came up with this view, with the Honey-Badger reaching toward the viewer. I provided a full-color version for direct-to-garment printing and web use, as well as a simplified version for silk-screening.
