"DANSE MACABRE" New piece now on view at GRISTLE TATTOO & ART GALLERY


This is a new piece of mine "DANSE MACABRE" for the "ILLUSTRATED DEATH" group show currently on view over at GRISTLE TATTOO & ART GALLERY. This piece is an interpretation of the themes of traditional Danse Macabre images, along with several other aspects of life, death, and their cyclical relationship to one another that I feel are common aspects of my work in general. The show has pieces on view and available for purchase by JEREMY HUSH, ALLISON SOMMERS, DYLAN GARRETT SMITH, ALISON LILLY, and MICHAL BRODKA as well as many others! Email info@gristletattoo.com for info on purchasing pieces from the show.

New gatefold design in progress.


I have been working on this gatefold design for a little over a month at this point. I have just finished the underpainting and am moving on to coloring it in. Its always great to have the opportunity to switch things up a bit with color, and especially with hand rendered color at that. I will be posting another hand colored illustration that I recently completed along with more details about this gatefold design.

APOCRYPHA November 22nd - December 6th at THE COTTON CANDY MACHINE





Here are a few of the new pieces that will be on display at THE COTTON CANDY MACHINE November 22nd thorugh December 6th for my show "APOCRYPHA" These pieces focus on the mythological influence in art and the shared imagery and symbols of different religions and belief systems. The show will be in the back space of the gallery and the front space will be showing "NEW MAPS OF THE ABYSS" by the incredible ARIK ROPER and THE ART OF SKINNER. It has been a fun and exciting challenge to make preparations for the show and an excellent learning experience. The show will consist of several new works and several original commissioned works for bands like DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT, and KADAVAR and the gallery will also be unveiling a brand new piece by LORI NELSON on the opening night, 7-11 pm.

My finished submission for COMMUNION II: "OUT OF THE WOODS" by MIDNITE COLLECTIVE.

The show featured the work of Mike Lawrence, Shaun Beaudry, Krist Mort, Farron Loathing, Jean Saiz, View From the Coffin, and Sebastian Mazuera, with performances by SORXE, COUGH, ATRIARCH, and INVDRS. Unfortunately I was unable to attend but I find it hard to image that the event wasn't an amazing time.

ABYSSAL tour poster design


Recently finished poster design for the Mexican doom metal band ABYSSAL. I really enjoyed inking this piece and had actually been wanting to draw something with a hairy angler so I was very pleasantly surprised when the band said that it was the only specification they had.
