Gnaster Blaster

Gnaster Blaster

Shirt design for Kyle Shutt’s solo project. He’s also the guitar player for The Sword, a band I’ve been a fan of for a long time now, so it was a blast to do some work for him. He also gave me a lot of creative freedom and this is what we ended up with. Logo not by me, though I did my best to recreate it for that old concert tee vibe in the border. Details - 1, 2

Jurassic Deaths

Jurassic Deaths

An illustration for Birth.Movies.Death, a publication put out by Alamo Drafthouse for big releases. This one was honoring all the gnarliest deaths in the Jurassic movies. You know that toilet had to make an appearance. Big thanks to AD Kelsey Spencer. Details - 1, 2, 3

Infera Bruo

Infera Bruo

Shirt design for Boston Black Metal outfit Infera Bruo. Go check 'em out, cuz they slay! I've been obsessed with death in outer space lately, so this is one of several images I've created in that realm. The unseen. The unheard.

ALIEN

ALIEN

Drawn for an article about the man behind the penis-head, HR Giger, for the issue of BIRTH. MOVIES. DEATH. that was released alongside Alien: Covenant. Had a blast and was allowed a bunch of freedom by AD Chris Bilheimer. Detail - 1

Uncle Lucius

Uncle Lucius

A t-shirt illustration for local band Uncle Lucius. They wanted Texas wild flowers and I was happy to oblige. Drawing from nature is always educational, but I rarely do it, so it's always great when someone comes to me with a project outside what I usually peddle.  Check them out here.

Austin, TX band Jagerbumps asked me for a shirt design, so obviously I thought of sad demon waiting in his cocaine pentagram for the seancers to show up.

The first design I did for American Sharks. They said they liked beer and partying when we talked on the phone, so I provided this Rad-ass Dog.
