Bullets and Octane poster

Pool Tradeshow - Palmercash

This is another t-shirt design I did for the guys over at Palmercash for a tradeshow they've got coming up. It's for a competition they are entering so I'm not sure if it will be chosen or not. (I hope so!)

Anyway, it was a nice break from working on the children's book I'm doing. Sometimes it's good to work on multiple projects at once so you don't get burnt out.

Poster Gig

So one of the projects I have just recently completed was creating the official poster for the Revenant Film Festival!
My good man Geoff at Revenant Magazine hit me up a while back, and here is the monster we have created!

This project was a fuckin' blast to do, and I am pretty pleased with the way things came out. Below are a few process sketches and color-ups, and I wanted to work in an homage to Forrest J. Ackerman's Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine covers, so that was fun too. Anyway, if you can make it up to Seattle for this momentous, gory, brain-splattering festival of Undead Cinema, get info and tickets HERE! Thanks again to Geoff and everyone at Revenant for the great opportunity!

Initial rough sketch and color idea:

Sketch for final piece:

And this is what I had originally intended as the style, but when it was in process I knew it was just going to be too goddamn muddy and confusing, so I reworked the sketch and colored it up in a more graphic style for the final. I hate how this one looks, except for the blood and guts, they look alright. Too dark and confusing on the rest.
