KADAVAR North American tour shirt design

Recently finished shirt design for the German band KADAVAR. I was really excited to work on this design when the band approached me about the commission. Its always nice to get the occasional commission that calls for color, and the room for experimentation with digital color is definitely a lot of fun to play around with, but here is the design that they liked the most for a black shirt option. Kadavar will be going on tour in the U.S. starting this March and going until May. I am definitely looking forward to seeing them in New York this April.

Cover artwork for the German doom metal band CROSS VAULT. This illustration was inspired by a scene from George Orwell's 1984. Working from a book (especially one that has already been translated into a movie) can be difficult, but this being a story that when i first read, i had such vivid imagery in my head of what the world that the characters live in must look like, i was very excited to attempt to render the dystopian scape that Orwell constructs for his readers. The album will be released by NORTHERN SILENCE PRODUCTIONS. Check out a preview track from the album at Cross Vault's official facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/crossvaultband?fref=ts


I recently finished the 8th (and second to last) cover design for NUNSLAUGHTER's compilation series THE DEVILS CONGERIES. Before this i had never received such a large commission at one time. It has been an amazing experience to work on such a large body of work, with a continuous narrative. The actual albums may not finish coming out for a number of years, but it has been a little over a year since i received the commission, and although it has been challenging, working with these guys was definitely a great way to start the last year and wrapping it all up will hopefully be a good way to start the new one.
