  • Horse composite

    Earlier this week I was asked by two people if I ever considered creating a piece using an animal as a subject. The thought had occured to me earlier in the project, but the notion dropped out of my head soon after as I got swept up in illustrating humans and their skulls. So it…

  • Signalnoise Dunny

    As I continue my work on the skull series I’m constantly thinking about how the style and pieces can be applied to other mediums. I quickly began thinking about cd covers, book covers, magazine designs, clothing, and eventually toys. I have been a longtime fan of the Dunny series created by the mighty Kid Robot.…

  • The Warming: 24″ x 36″

    Here is the new large-format piece, entitled The Warming. I will hopefully get the three new works out for a print test this week to see how accurately the colors will translate, which is pretty crucial given how long I spend picking the right hues. I worked hard on this new piece to keep a…

  • Underneath the skin: 24 x 36

    This is the second large format piece constructed using the previous photoshoot with Sarah. After the initial rendering of the figure and skull was done, I loaded the textures on top and started peeling them away one by one which led to me having a far better understanding of how the colors were being influenced.…

  • 24 x 36 art composite

    It was always my intention to allow this project to gain its own momentum and girth as I proceeded with my trial and error tactics. I tried a lot of different processes over the past few weeks (documented on my Flickr stream) as I tried to forge my own imagery using the tools I’ve been…

  • Inspiration: Jacob Bannon

    It’s going to be a little while before any new art emerges as I’m busy doing photo shoots and preparing more art assets, so it’s a good time to post on another of my influences. Jacob Bannon is a recent discovery of mine, which came about through friends recommending a band called Converge. Bannon is…

  • Texture demo

    I have a lot of texture work in my art mostly because it forces the piece in a more traditional direction, rather then something obviously Photoshop. I add layers of dirt, concrete, sand, rock faces, bushes, splatters, scribbles or whatever I can find that would add more dimension and emotion to my work. Working with…

  • Inspiration: Joshua Davis

    I wear my influences on my sleeve, I always have. During school between ’95 and ’98 the internet was really starting to take off in a big way, and having access to so much information and imagery really turned me into a sponge. There were so many cool and innovative artists emerging every day and…
