Recently I had the chance to collaborate with The excellent Wisconsin based brewery, Dead Bird Brewing. Their upcoming beer series Titans, imagines four new beers as monsters with characteristics inspired by the individual beer flavors.
A Wind Storm In The Forests
These are the first ten pages of a wordless comic based on John Muir's writings. In these pages, John Muir is referring back to his journals to gain inspiration to write his now famous "A Wind Storm in the Forests."
Skin Walkers Ranch Part 1
Astonishing Legends has a new podcast episode centering on supernatural sightings at Skin Walkers Ranch. One of the cooler creatures to be seen multiple times on the ranch grounds was a huge wolf, described as blue eyed, gigantic and unaffected by gunfire. Because this was a quick turnaround, I focused on traditional media with more expressive line then stitched everything together digitally.
Skin Walkers Ranch Part 2
For the second installment of Astonishing Legends Skin Walker Ranch episode, I tackled the half wolf, half man skin walker creature. In continuation of the mixed media approach to the first wolf illustration, I used india ink wash, and the Pentel brush pen but instead of the dry brush texture used previously, I tried Kyle Webster's halftone brushes.
The first in a series of constellation based illustrations. Next up is Taurus!

Kong Of Skull Island
Recently I had the chance to work with Phillip Kennedy Johnson (writer) and Dee Cunniffe (Colors) on BOOM's Kong of Skull Island. Below is the original cover, an alternate cover I got the chance to help with, two of the colored pages, three black and white pages showing the first up close appearance of Kong and a selection of character studies.

Recently I was lucky enough to work with Mountain High Media to develop illustrations for Bold Rock Breweries' upcoming unique hard cider flavors. Shown is the first in a series of three.
