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.

My finished submission for COMMUNION II: "OUT OF THE WOODS" by MIDNITE COLLECTIVE. This piece along with an original shirt design for LOCUSTA and the original cover artwork for WOODS OF DESOLATION's "AS THE STARS" were on view this weekend in LA. 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.

New shirt design for AGELESS OBLIVION. The design is based off of my interpretation of the Hindu deity Mahakali, goddess of time and death,
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.

After having so many people inquire about screen prints of this, I had an edition made up by my good friend and amazing illustrator MIKE LAWRENCE. (check out his work @Mike_Illustrated) I still have about 5 of these remaining in my webstore (http://lucasruggieriillustration.bigcartel.com/) and a couple will be available at my upcoming gallery show in LA, with MIDNITE COLLECTIVE. I will be posting the piece for that show soon along with the rest of the details!
