Obey the KLAW

I had the pleasure to work with rock warrior Casey Cunningham on developing cover art and booklet illustrations for his band KLAW for release July 2015.
He really liked my Phantasmonaut poster and wanted something in a similar vein. So I suggested the continuing adventures of the said Phantasmonaut as a theme and embarked on working out the space marauder mid-theft of some ancient cosmic relic on a weird dying world where he'd awakened it's god. 
I did an ink illustration and then colored and designed it in Photoshop.

For the interior illustrations Casey wanted to have images represent the acronym of KLAW, which is Knight, Leprechaun, Astronaut and Wizard.
I did my versions of these in black charcoal on toned paper with white highlights. 

Later that year, KLAW was part of Noise for Toys, where all proceeds go to purchasing toys for kids in need for the Christmas holiday season. Casey had the idea of Santa Clause facing off with Krampus for the flyer design. The event was a huge success.

Betsy Threatsy

Illustration of creepy-ass Betsy Threatsy I did for Jake Stratton, live barker for W.X.P.F.L. aka World Extreme Pencil Fighting League in Seattle, WA. This was supposed to be used for a coloring book of all the characters in the League. Not sure what came of it but realized I'd never posted it. Enjoy.

Quick 8x8" ink drawing I did while attending The Drawnk Show at Georgetown Liquor Co. in Georgtown, Seattle, June 11th. I touched it up afterwards with a bit of ink-wash, something I don't do too often.
