Just finished this whale monster character creation. Had a lot of fun creating this guy.
A great ongoing client of mine is starting a new venture into the hot sauce market. He requested a zany cartoon alligator logo illustration to go on his hot sauce bottles. I really love how this image turned out and he did too.
Here’s 2 t-shirt illustrations I created for a reptile and amphibian apparel line. The clothing line is geared towards what the client calls, the ‘herping’ culture. The frog on the left is a African Pixie Frog and the one on the right is called a Leuc Frog for short. As you can see, the outfits match the names in a fun and comedic way.
Just recently finished painting these 3 t-shirt illustrations in Photoshop for a client’s MMA and fight gear based clothing line. He was looking for original character-driven t-shirt concepts, so I came up with a mean werewolf with glowing eyes, a lava monster breaking through the ground, and a tough shark beast, ready for his next fight. I really enjoyed working on these. I’m looking forward to seeing the final t-shirt prints.
Here’s a tough little Dwarf Fish creature concept. Imagine an evolved species of dwarves that live in the deepest parts of the ocean. Coolness if you ask me.
I still liked this Seafaring Wizard I sketched a while back and finally found some time to paint him up! Enjoy this magical buccaneer of awesomeness.
I was recently commissioned to design and illustrate a new gaming company’s logo. What’s interesting about this job was that they had started with another artist, but they just weren’t liking the results they were getting. So, they decided to hire me instead. In the end, the client was extremely happy with the work, and it’s looking like they want to have me help with art & characters for their next game. They have been a pleasure to work with, and I’m very excited for the new opportunity.
Here’s a silly creature I drew for myself in my sketchbook. Been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to draw anything for myself recently. This alien guy is based on my favorite bird, the Cassowary, and of course I had to give him a cool staff that does something awesome, who knows what. Did this in Sharpie and color pencils.
Finally got a chance to post some highlights of the children’s book illustrations I did for a new client. His kid’s book is centered around being a zookeeper as a career choice. It’s quite a fun book with lots of zoo animals and a mischievous, white faced capuchin monkey.
Here’s are four cartoon t-shirt illustrations I created for a new client’s clothing line called “Hop Monkey.” He’s starting a beer & monkeys themed apparel company. Fun and interesting concept. And who doesn’t like monkeys, right?
Here’s a mean looking lava rock beast coming up from beneath the earth. Fun practice on painting a creature made out of lava. Not the easiest task! Still feel I need a bit more practice.
Here’s a few of the many rock & roll themed t-shirt illustrations I created for a client overseas. I’ve lost track of how many designs I’ve created for him now, and it’s been a lot of fun! Plenty of skulls, guitarists, skeletons, and edgy imagery in these.
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.
