HAPPY HEAVENLY BIRTHDAY PRINCE

In honor of my life hero’s birthday, I decided to create this Purple Rain poster to celebrate the movie’s 40th anniversary.

I drew inspiration from the 80’s retro style, the movie, soundtrack, music videos, concerts and statues/figure along with Alphonse Mucha & Mondo Posters various designs for this tribute piece.

Dearly beloved

We are gathered here today

to get through this thing called life….

Happy Heavenly 66th Birthday Prince!

MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU

HAPPY STAR WARS DAY!

This 18×24 poster design was inspired by the Marvel Corner Boxes with character faces. I went with A New Hope, the movie that started it all. I would like to do the same approach for Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi in the future.

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU, ALWAYS!!!

REMEMBERING MY LIFE HERO TODAY WITH SOME TRIBUTE ART

Rembering my life hero today. It doesn’t feel like he’s been gone for 8 years now. Here’s a little something I recently created in honor of  him. It’s inspired by the album and tour that went with it. Hard to believe the Musicology album is 20 years old this year.

Gotta keep that party movin’

Like I told you

Kick the old school joint

For the true funk soldiers 

Musicology 

FINALLY GETTING BACK TO BLOGGING

It’s been a long while since I’ve blogged and it’s good to get back to it.

I’m excited to share with you guys that I have some artwork hanging in Absolute Best Comic Store. One of the pieces I have on display is a Boba Fett poster hanging in the Star Wars themed room. Another piece is a Harry Potter Poster hanging in the Harry Potter themed room. It’s awesome that they have local artist artwork displayed throughout the store.

When you enter the store it has a cool pop culture/thrift store vibe to it. Different areas of the store are themed from Aliens, Universal Monsters, Lego, Star Wars, 80’s Movies, Mario Bros, Disney and comic books. They carry a wide arrangement of toys, statues, books, clothing, trading cards, comics, movies, music, funkos, anime, video games, collectibles and tabletop games. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. If your ever in the area be sure to check out their main store and their gaming store a few doors down.

 

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Happy Halloween!

However you’re celebrating, I hope you have a great time! have fun and stay safe 🎃💀👻

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCE

In honor of Prince’s birthday, I decided to create this Partyman poster which is inspired by the The Batman 1989 time period, along with Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman.

I drew inspiration from the Batman Soundtrack album, music videos and concerts along with various playing card designs for this years tribute piece.

All hail the new king in town

Young and old, gather ’round (yeah)

Black and white, red and green (yeah, funky)

The funkiest man you’ve ever seen

Tell you what his name

Partyman, Partyman

Rock a party like nobody

Happy 65th Birthday Prince!

LAST TRADITIONAL PAINTING STAGE FOR THIS DARTH MAUL PIECE

All finished up with the traditional painting process on this Darth Maul piece. Next up, scanning and painting in the background digitally. 

On this last painting stage I started by outlining the pants, boot areas and the bottom of the robes. Next, I painted the left pants and boot areas. Then, I moved on to painting the right pants and boot areas. From there, I outlined the dual lightsaber and then painted silver areas slowly building up the metallic feel. Lastly, I painted the white glow areas and then painted in the red outer glow to finish this painting stage.

MERRY FREAKIN CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho
