A military gentleman came in and showed me some pictures of this wrestler randy orton. Though he wasnt a wrestling fan he wanted his bad tribal to be spruced up with skulls like randy orton’s arms. when we got started i had no idea this guy planned to champ out the whole thing but thats exactly what he did.

A walk-in from the other day wanted to cover this tribal armband. I could have spent a lot more time working on this but this is what we nailed out in three and a half hours.

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.
