Here’s a quick Japanese style koi drawing I created. I used traditional calligraphy brushes to ink it and then watercolor pencils to add the waves and the colors on the fish. This was a sample illustration for showing the art group that I teach on Monday nights. I try to have a different project each time we meet. I love being a part of it!
Did this sketch a week or two ago, but hadn’t taken the time to scan it until now. This little cartoon scuba guy thinks he hit the jackpot with this sunken treasure chest, but little does he know, a big, grumpy fish guards it. You can decide how this story ends…
This is a quick sketch I did with traditional pastels. I wanted to draw up a sample for my drawing group coming up tomorrow night. Planning on showing some techniques with pastels. I lead an art group every 1st and 3rd Monday here in Chandler, AZ. Feel free to email me if you are interested in coming sometime.
Another t-shirt design for my ongoing client, One Less Nemesis. This one is a Dr. Who themed shirt featuring the Tardis smashing one of the Weeping Angels from the Blink episode.
Here’s 2 final illustrations I created for a client. He needed me to create a character design of a Zeus-like Titan for his gaming website. Really enjoyed working on this.
Recently drew some color storyboards for an ongoing client. The premise of the commercial is that a burnt-out cubicle worker ends up being transported to a Tron-like world where she races other drivers. Fun project to storyboard the pre-production for.
“Brains are friends, not food” public service announcement style t-shirt design. Not quite sure if zombies can read, but if they can, hopefully wearing this shirt will deter them from eating you.
New clothing line a client is starting: monsters and creatures based on H. P. Lovecraft’s literature. This is the first design, the Cthulhu octopus beast.
The Brat Haus restaurant wanted a fun baseball Spring Training t-shirt design for their servers and shop. I came up with the idea of a vintage baseball cartoon pig, since they cook a lot of amazing brats and other pork goodness.
So I had a fun time designing these two roller derby girls. These are 2 roller derby players and their derby names. The cartoon style is reminiscent of the Wreck-It-Ralph Sugar Rush characters, as was their request. After it was all done, the client sent me some photos of the art on their helmets, which turned out awesome!
These are the character concept art sketches, along with the final tiger character design for Princeton University. They wanted to start a new line of products and apparel with a kid-friendly tiger mascot.
An ongoing client came back to me for 2 new t-shirt designs for his fishing themed clothing line. He’s been wanting to bring some more edgy, trendy designs to the fisherman’s market. I think that these new Mackerel and Mako Shark designs will help him capture that market.
Here’s two fun little cartoon gnomes. The client wanted one happy gnome and one gnome that had a bit more of a mischievous look on his face.
This is a t-shirt design I created for NJOY. They wanted a design to celebrate their move and success from this last year. The art they requested was something trendy, with use of their tribal wings logo and also an electric guitar.
My friend has been working on an album cover for a band and asked for my help. The band’s album theme is “a journey” and he was having a hard time thinking of what to do for the cover. He had already started a vintage ink illustration theme, like you see in the C.S. Lewis books and other old novels, so I suggested that I draw the band members traveling on a giant tortoise. Random I know, but awesome. The band is The Hollands, and they are a family. Here’s the final illustration (I just put it on an old paper for effect, but my friend is taking the inked illustration and incorporating it in the album cover design).
