I am a pen and ink illustration by nature but I am always trying to experiment in other mediums. I have never painted much with acrylic but I gave it a go and did these paintings in my free time over a weekend as a trial run. I am not stoked on them but I was able to get a feel for the medium and think I can produce some cool stuff on larger a larger scale in the future. Either way it was fun to get a bit more loose with my art than i am used to.


and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him

I was stoked to get a call from Reggie the other day to work on his arm. He wanted a “unique” four horsemen sleeve.  He has an ambigram on the inside of his arm i am having to work around and a star i covered up next to the skull. I think it will look pretty epic when it’s done .These are not great photos but you get the idea.

I got to do a little more work on Mike’s apocalypse sleeve. I really feel like it’s coming together. I think we will be ready to start color next time.
