Wolverine Illustration

This is a cartoon illustration of Wolverine. I made him super-deformed and gave him a cigar. I always liked him because he isn’t overpowered. He is an anti-hero with flaws and he wins but it is never easy so his stories are always interesting. He also has a cool backstory and a nice design. I put him in his 70s brown and gold costume. It is the one he was wearing when I first started reading his comic when I was a kid in the 90s.

This is a t-shirt design for the allman brothers band. I grew up in Georgia and lived in the Macon area for about a decade. It is amazing how much great music came out of Georgia. These guys were extremely talented. It is fun to watch them play live at their peak on youtube.

David Lynch Painting

This is a digital painting of David Lynch smoking a cigarette. His movies are obsessed with the surrealistic seedy underbelly of small town america. He makes wonderful spiraling dark movies with nonlinear stories and dreamlike imagery.

Gaga’s eyelashes have become a nest for some bright green glow bugs. They doot lights out of their butt to communicate with the benevolent aliens observing humanity from parallel dimensions.

Magnus Carlsen Cartoon

Magnus Carlsen

This is a caricature of the world’s number one chess player Magnus Carlsen. Great chess players have incredibly high IQs and mutant like spatial awareness. I saw where top players burn up to 6000 calories in tournaments – just from using their brain to crunch potential moves. It is hard to believe that a kid from Norway – a country with only 5 million people crushes the best players from countries like China with 1.3 billion.

Kanye West Caricature

This is a digital illustration of Kanye with blue eyes. The blue represents the album art of his last two records. Kanye took a strange Christian turn in his music. It is pretty brave when you consider it will alienate most of his hyper liberal audience. When you look at the long rich history of black music it doesn’t take long to realize that it all stems from the church.

Redhead Pinup Girl White Bathing Suit

Redhead Pinup Girl White Bathing Suit

I am no expert at human anatomy – bodies are so complicated. This is an attempt at a retro pinup digital painting. I was introduced to the work of George Petty when I was a kid – that guy was a master of drawing women. I love how he simplified bodies and exaggerated features and left parts of their clothing flat and un-painted to emphasize their skin. He worked with an airbrush and painted from multiple reference photos – picking the best features. His work really represents the 40s and he is responsible for a lot of the pinups that showed up on the front of bombers in WW2
