Aaarrrgh…New Pirate-themed Album Art!

Ukulele Jim is a talented California-based Musician and Writer who’s just released a recording of his version of “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life For Me)”. Check it out (and his other albums) on his website HERE. This Summer, he’ll be releasing a full-length album of kid’s music (featuring this song…), for which I’ve been honored to be asked to do the artwork. So stay tuned for that… But in the meantime, below are a couple more swashbuckling versions of this artwork. Enjoy…

Initial Rough Ideas and Concepts…

CHEERS!

Dead Draw… Now Playing!

Four criminals try to escape their past and survive the night. They realize someone knows about the $25 million, the plane to Mexico and the killing of the getaway pilot. As loyalty turns to suspicion, friends become enemies…

I am so proud to be a part of the production company (Rocket3) that created this great independent heist thriller! For this film, I first worked as the Storyboard Artist and then on set at the 2nd AC. After a successful year in the festival circuit, we’re now airing on Showtime. Head over to http://www.sho.com/titles/3452684/dead-draw .

Cheers!

Happy Flying, Tom Petty…

I only got into Tom Petty’s music over the last 5 years or so, but once I did, I felt like it had been with me my whole life. His songs are transcendent, timeless, unforgettable, and just plain damn cool. I’ll miss him. The least I could do was draw him. Fly on, Tom!

Brutus the Carved Buckeye…Nice work, Chad!

So happy to give a shoutout and some major props to Chad Rombach of Toledo, OH for this incredibly cool carving of The Ohio State Buckeyes mascot Brutus the Buckeye. Nice work, good sir! Considering he claims to have only just started learning how to carve, I’m incredibly impressed. Notice the championship years along the side? An excellent touch too!

This carving is based on an illustration I did a few years ago for a t-shirt for Butcher’s Tap in Chicago, IL. Chad came across it after doing a Google search for Brutus the Buckeye images and then went to town.

As a professional illustrator, I can think of few greater honors than for someone to be inspired by your artwork and then use it to create a cool work of their own. Cheers to you, Chad!

Here’s the original illustration from back in 2014…


GO BUCKEYES!

One for a friend…

For my good friend’s birthday, I decided to draw up a silly comic in honor of the stupid-but-totally-fun-at-the-time things we used to do. He’s been one of my best friends since the 7th grade, and I can only hope the memories and good times will never cease.

One for the eclipse…

Not having any glasses, I wasn’t able to watch the eclipse yesterday. So I made my own…
