So, a late night idea that I had, that’s way too late to be very relevant, was crossing over the comic series made movie famous, “The Avengers,” with the crazy book made tv famous, the HBO series “Game of Thrones.” The idea came to me while I was watching an animated movie about Thor. During [...]
So, a couple years back, I saw a poster come into my Tumblr feed that I absolutely fell in love with. I didn’t love the poster because of the obvious high-value craftsmanship that went into creating it, or even because the subject of the poster was something as kickass as a samurai. I loved it [...]
Photomanipulation stuff that got me wanting to use Photoshop more, again. There is probably more to come…
I’ve been making things, just not as much, and haven’t been as interested in sharing them with the internet as I probably should be. Anyhow, this poster is all about my warrior character in the MMORPG, Rift. Fun times.
My latest commissioned work is an implementation of the client’s ideas, and not so much of my own. This process felt much more like being a forensic sketch artist than a designer. A bit more back and forth than I would like, but, hey, a satisfied customer is a satisfied customer.
It’s that time, again… Time for me to pull my head up out of the sand trap that is my blindingly suffocating work schedule and get together with some friends and family to make a little music. This Saturday, I’ll be joining my cousin and his band, Dogs @ Lunch, at the Cadillac Ranch in [...]
I have ideas. I daydream. I do. Many times, I have ideas for stories and think of the various formats these stories could be presented in. I think of possible movies and video games, but a lot of times, I think of possible children’s books.
One such idea involves these nondescript, furry balls and the various [...]
Another Dogs at Lunch poster. I tried to stick within the Starbucks’ sort of design and colors. I think it worked out, okay, but something better that came of it is that I think I have a new idea for a marketing idea/logo, now.
Well, it’s that time of year, again … my favorite economist has gained another year of intellectual prowess and might as well have another poster dedicated to him, if for nothing else, just to motivate him to continue being awesome.
Here’s to you Stuclach!
So, I’m into zombies … if you didn’t know, already. One thing that always bothered me about popular theories of how zombies happen is that they revolve around viruses. The biologist in me wants to explore this more, though, instead of just writing it off as plausible. So, I’ve decided that viruses are a plausible [...]
So, I finally got the vectors done on this. I’m not ashamed to say that it took a good, long time. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if it’s the lack of sleep or lack of vision, but I’m drawing blanks on composition.
Any help, guys?
Info on the piece:
The saxophone is a Selmer Paris Series III that was [...]
So, last night at trivia, one of the answers was Deepwater Horizon of infamous BP Oil Spill fame. Just hearing the name, again, put an image in my mind and I had to get it out. So, this is pretty much what my head-brain-eye saw.
Well, I guess the whole retro-console-diagramming thing from yesterday might become something of a series with me. I like to find formulas, as blah as that may sound, but it keeps it interesting. Maybe this time I’ll be able to continue a series and develop it as I go along. Already between the last piece [...]
Yes, you read the title correctly. This image is not in my normal dimensions, as you may have noticed. It’s based on l-vanpelt’s work. I tried to think about which console would be the coolest to do first in this style, which lead me to the Famicom Disk System. I made this because of pacalin’s [...]
This is the version of the New Years Eve poster for band The Happy Accidents that I prefer over the preliminary one I created. The design is very simple, yet, based on the responses it’s received, it is also very attractive. Women in burlesque situations can do that, I guess. Anyway, because the poster is [...]
Sometimes I make things just to try out new styles. This one was just to let me see if I could reproduce a sort of techie/Tron kind of feeling. I’m not far off, but it is a bit too busy. I’d like to try this again with photomanipulation.
In my small town there are several tiny bands and only a couple of places to perform. The one for the adults is the Blue Sky Grill, as you may have noticed from reading other posts, but the one for high-schoolers and younger is a coffee shop called Beans and Strings. The drummer for Dogs [...]
You may notice that the above image looks a little craptastic PPI-wise and that it even has type font on it. Well, ladies and gentlemen, for the first time on my site I have linked to the actual, for real, 100% highest quality converted .jpg of one of my renderings. So, click on through for [...]
It’s all about giving thanks, and did we give! … t-the answer is yes. Yes, we gave.
Dogs @ Lunch put together a special performance at the same old awesome local bar, the Blue Sky Grill, and it was the best turnout, yet. The bar was completely packed with standing room only, and patrons still stuck [...]
This poster is the first made for a local band I play with semi-regularly called “Dogs at Lunch.” It was formed by my cousin, Micah, who writes all the music and I do enjoy it very much. He brought me on as the lead player, but it’s a bit different than usual as I play [...]
Yet another poster inspired by a deed in the Shire from the Lord of the Rings Online game.
A Hobbit baked several pies for various other Hobbits throughout the Shire. Unfortunately, after they were all delivered, she realized that the berries used in the pies were rotten. The deed is to run around and collect the [...]
I was chatting on the phone, one day, and I was falling in and out of sleep. Sometimes, or most times, when I get very tired, but am trying to make myself hold on to reality and not pass completely out, I see things. Random images will pop into my head. In this case, a [...]
This is pretty self-explanatory, I think. There was extra time, I was bored, so I did something. Here it is.
So, I read an article (linked from Reddit) about “The Chemist’s War” during America’s national prohibition of alcohol. Looks like no one talks about it much, but the U.S. Government would poison some alcohol in an effort to deter some citizens from drinking it. This lead to more than one thousand deaths rather than mild [...]
