Guitar Playing Robot Print

Guitar Playing Robot

Guitar Playing Robot, 4-color silkscreen print, 18 x 24 inches. 2015.

If there’s a thing I do, it’s guitar playing robots. This guitar playing robot print was drawn by hand and separated in the computer. This four color print features two overprint colors and some halftones. This is the first 4-color print that I designed. Read about the months long learning process.


Skeleton

Skeleton design

Skeleton design, 2015.

This was done for no particular reason. Part hand drawn, part computer work. It’s the kind of thing I save because I might want to improve upon it someday.


25 Squares

25 Squares

25 Squares. 2014. Mixed media illustration on Bristol board. 9x12in.

If there are two things I do, it’s robots and squares. I’ve been playing with these squares for nearly a decade now. It can be something cathartic to explore when I get in a slump. It started with simple Sharpie marker on cardstock and over the years I have learned to add color and mix it up.


Bass Playing Unicycle Robot

Bass Playing Unicycle Robot. 2017.

A work in progress for a potential print. Eventually I hope to have a four-piece robot band featured in prints. Read about the evolution of this design.

Kabuki Vampire Motorcycle Club promo poster, design for 18 x 24 in. print. 2015

This is a work in progress for a promotional poster for a comic book of mine. The illustration was drawn by hand with some vector refinements made in Adobe Illustrator.


Inked Skull

Inked skull. 6 x 9 inches.

Inked skull. 6 x 9 inches on bristol. May 2016.

This piece was done with a regular old dip pen and I had so much fun with it that I can see this method of working becoming a regular part of my artwork.
