Here are a few newer finished pieces that I have done on commission as well as some other stuff. Not a lot of great insights about these, and I guess that's the point of a commission most of the time. I've learned to listen to what the customer wants or else risk drawing the commission over and over and over again.
This is a new design for Slaughter Beach Co. "Speak no Evil, See no Evil, Hear no Evil". SB offers an array of brutal clothing from t-shirts to underpants for the undead fiend in your life who's hell on earth to shop for.
This will be used for a split record for the British speed/filth metal group River Freshly and Nebukadnezza. Perhaps it will end up of a t-shirt, too. They are great dudes as long as you have an ocean's worth of safe distance between yourself and them. The drawing may also be used for a tour poster with River Freshly and fellow British thrashers, Mutant. Catch them when they crash through your grotty town, SAAAFE!!!
Pravus is another clothing company to keep an eye on, lest they hold your Mother for ransom or make you walk the plank. I did this devious design for them a while ago but it's a killer. It would have been even more of a killer if I had spelled the logo correctly but that is all the more reason to be on the lookout. Comb the ocean horizon for the black sails to keep clear of the ghost ship PRAVUS.
If you check out the rats in these two pictures you may note that they are pretty damn similar. As the tattoo artist Bill Stevenson said just before he tattooed "WILL POWER" under my right arm, "If you're not cheating you're working too hard!"
Will British metal health specialists Hospital of Death be involved in the retooling of the American Health Care system? Maybe they should be. Maybe Micheal Moore should have used these dudes to score his 2007 movie "Sicko." Maybe, the chainsaw nurse lady in the following picture is a really nice person just about to cut down a stack of lumber to heat an orphanage.
Hell, while I'm at it here are some drawings that I've needed to get out of my computer. This is the first drawing I sent to the band Ramming Speed. Yeah, sure, it's a little more than a year old, but I got my copy of the record almost exactly a year ago, so it's topical, in a way... Anyway, I saw them last year in Raleigh, North Carolina with Battle Master and Ugly Law. Good times.
Those dudes didn't dig this drawing and asked my to try another one. It was there loss...If you want to see the real Ramming Speed cover get the album. It's great, and one of my favorite album covers I've ever done, but this isn't what they used.
I did this drawing below for a band that I won't name because they were kind of dicks. I even talked to them at a show and asked them if they thought they would use the drawing, and still don't know if they will or not. LIMBO CITY! GAAAAAAHH!!! I hope they don't end up using it so I can send it on to another group. A good group like Insect Warfare, Triac, Magrudergrind, Crom, Mammoth Grinder, Suzukiton, The Endless Blockade, Infernal Stronghold, Trasher, Akris, Three Faces of Eve, Woe, Ugly Law, Street Pizza, Juice Tyme!, Weekend Nachos, Heathens, Parasytic, Deathammer, Drugs of Faith, Withered or Antietam. I really like this one... The whole situation reminds me of any given strip from the Brian Walsby book, "MANCHILD."
Last but not least I have gotten some exclusive photos of the newest member of my family taken by a cut throat ninja paparazzi. This is my son who will hopefully be may greatest work of art and not just the bum asking me for an advance of his allowance.
