things have been rather hectic lately and though i haven’t been able to post much know that i’m hard at work on several projects and hope to be able to share soon. but until then, i’m beyond flattered to share this: JOY SHANNON interviewed me for TERRORIZER (holy shit!) about illustration, metal, metal illustration, and of course my dog. please be sure to check it out here. i hope i don’t come across as too much of a dolt.
check back soon, as always more to come!
here’s an unexpected but super awesome piece of good news i received: the cover illustration i did for last year’s DEATH VALLEY HIGH album "POSITIVE EUTH" is up for an INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARD! it’s up for a vote so if you would be so kind please head over to their site and be sure to vote for me in the ALBUM ART / PHOTOGRAPHY category. any and all help is appreciated, but honestly being nominated is ridiculously flattering to say the least. big thanks to brad over at minus HEAD records for submitting this for consideration!

it’s been quite a while since i posted, but i certainly know how to make a comeback. above is the ad specific to the fine publication that is DECIBEL MAGAZINE that i was commissioned to design top to bottom for the new streaming music service from BEATS MUSIC. whaaaat?!
if you haven’t heard, beats music is looking to be a main competitor to spotify and they certainly have been getting the press to back it up. back in december before disappearing for a week i received an excited phone call from decibel editor, inebriator survivor, and all around awesome dude albert mudrian, who asked if i would be interested in designing a metal specific two page ad to run in the first two pages of the monthly publication. i think i somehow managed to break the speed of light in agreeing to the job. i worked closely with beats music ceo ian rogers on the ad (who the hell gets to work with the ceo?), and not only was it a blast to work on but everyone involved in the project was unbelievably easy to work with and made my life a hell of a lot easier. the ad is in the latest issue of decibel. this premiered in decibel issue #113, featuring nergal from behemoth on the cover. those with a subscription (which i hope is all of you) should have this delivered already, but if not be sure to pick up a copy and help inflate my already inflated ego.
it was an unbelievable honor to work on this project and i honestly cannot thank albert, ian, and decibel art director / equally awesome dude BRUNO GUERREIRO for even considering let alone hiring me for this job. with no uncertainty i can say opportunities like this make any possible hardship in this business worth it. thank you thank you thank you.
i have several new pieces in the works for such fine folks as METALSUCKS, METAL INJECTION, PLANKS, and ROSETTA. i’m hoping to finish one this weekend and the others soon after. i’ve been better about posting teasers on my instagram, so if you don’t already be sure to follow me on there. more to come!
the first shipment of TRVE LOVE shirts have hit the mail! there’s been a lot of positive feedback so far, so the future might hold some very cool things indeed. for now, there are still some shirts left so be sure to pick one up now at my ONLINE STORE and if you’re on instagram take a picture of yourself with the shirt and the hashtag #trvelove and i’ll be sure to share it!
more to come!
