Breaking Bad poster

Posted on Friday, June 28, 2013 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration

In honor of the last season of one of the greatest TV shows EVER! I created this illustration. I hope to have time to do more illustrations like this in the future (Especially since Dexter is in it’s final season also). I had another idea after I was mostly done with this one. One I think would have been more dynamic but I wanted to finish this one first and Breaking Bad doesn’t start until August so I’ve got time.

Concert Poster and Guitar Wrap

Posted on Friday, April 26, 2013 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

It’s been a while since I did a concert poster and even longer since it was used as a guitar wrap. Fortunately it somehow turned out perfect for the guitar. This is one of may favorite guitars wraps.

Halloween Concert Poster

Posted on Thursday, November 1, 2012 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

This turned out to be the prefect poster for a Halloween concert. So we got to use it after all. If I’d only waited a bit longer to post it I wouldn’t be putting it up again. I loved the title they came up with for the concert and the whole thing seemed to come together much better than the previous version. I thought I’d throw this up here quickly before poster the new album cover which we finally completed. Stay tuned for that coming up.

Orem Arts Festival poster

Posted on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

Elemental asked me for a family friendly poster for their set in the Orem Arts Festival. Somehow I got from the suggestion of “Monster Family” to what you see below. I had some other ideas of where to take it but I ran out of time. I think we’ll probably use this one again (probably for a guitar wrap as well) and maybe I’ll rework it then.

The Concert Poster Illustration that never was

Posted on Thursday, May 10, 2012 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

So, I’m just going to do it. I created this poster last year but the fear was that it would get torn down from a certain local university campus. So it was shelved and another one created in it’s place. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to use it again and it just isn’t happening. So, I’m just going to post it because I like it and I don’t want it to get lost.

Muse (the venue not the band) Concert Poster

Posted on Tuesday, April 17, 2012 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

For this poster I decided to get back on track… by going off track and just doing what ever was inspired to pop into my head. You probably wouldn’t guess by looking at it but the original inspiration for this was the image of Luke Skywalker Running through the swamp with Yoda strapped to his back. I just thought it was a cool concept and it just kind of grew from there. I’m often inspired by something I see in a movie/read in a book/hear in a song. Although once it gets through the filter of my brain there isn’t much resemblance to the original inspiration. And that’s just fine with me.

Concert Poster and Guitar Wrap

Posted on Saturday, February 11, 2012 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to post all the things I’ve been working on. I’ve got quite a few posts ready to go. I thought I’d start with this one. This was one of the most difficult posters I’ve done in a ling time. I went through a lot of failed concepts and in the end I went back to one of the abandoned ones so that I could make the deadline. The concept didn’t particularly lend itself to a guitar wrap either and I was worried about how it would turn out. But I was worried for nothing. I really like the way the wrap turned out! The colors and texture go so well with the guitar that it’s becoming one of my favorite wraps.

Vulture Boy: concert poster and guitar

Posted on Thursday, November 24, 2011 in Concert poster, Illustration, Print

Here’s another illustration in the “kids with scary animals” collection. This was actually the second illustration for this concert. The first was deemed somewhat inappropriate for a certain local college campus and they were afraid the posters would get torn down. So I had to create this replacement at the last minute. The other poster will be used for a different concert, so I’ll post it when that happens. I’m very happy with how this turned out. I had my doubts as I was creating it, but I pushed through and I’m happy it worked out.

Jelly Fish Girl: Concert Poster/Guitar Wrap giveaway

Posted on Monday, September 12, 2011 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

The guitar wrap on this one was very successful. A local guitar shop is even interested in sponsoring the next giveaway.  I don’t know much about guitars but I’ve been told this is the nicest of the guitars they’ve given away. I was very happy with the way the colors turned out on the poster.

The Walking Dead Illustration

Posted on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

This was actually the start of a concert poster (inspired by The Walking Dead television show) that didn’t work out. Rather than let it sit half done, I thought I’d make it official by adding the title and posting it. It’s still in a state of unfinished-ness but I thought it was worth a posting.

Roctopus Concert Poster and Guitar Illustration

Posted on Friday, July 15, 2011 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration, Print

This poster/guitar wrap is the fastest I’ve had to produce an illustration. I was told one evening of the need for another illustration and had to have a finished piece done by the next morning. Luckily I already had an idea ready (sometimes that is what takes the most time) so I had a head start. I was kinda bummed that I didn’t get to spend more time on it, until I saw the guitar. It turned out better than I would have hoped. I can’t wait to do another.

Gator Guitar Illustration

Posted on Monday, July 4, 2011 in Concert poster, Drawing, Illustration

I was asked to create an illustration specifically for a guitar wrap to giveaway at the World-Record-Breaking concert that was going on last week. Unfortunately one band was 15 minutes late for their set so the attempt had to be called off. I think they are going to make another attempt in the fall.  Anyway, I was happy with the illustration and it sparked and idea to do a series of children and monster-animals. From my perspective the boy and the gator are friends, but it could be that the gator is protecting it’s next meal. I like that ambiguity and I’m excited to create more.
