Drawings with an insane amount of detail like “Serpienta” of course require an insane amount of time (and willpower) to complete. The process of this project took place over a six week period (don’t ask how many hours).Â It was not six weeks of solid work, but a result of having to divide my attention […]
This double-commission project was for a soon-to-be wedded couple who wanted to emulate the look of my “Muerta Bride” and “Muerto Groom” pieces. Visit my Services page to learn more about art commissions and other projects! Â
This commissioned piece was intended to be a sleeve tattoo and include multiple elements that the client liked – including a sacred heart that was out of the ordinary. I decided to go with an anatomical heart (which I always liked because of its complex form), which was all too easy to pair with a […]
1. Initial pencil sketch. “Phoebius” was a more experimental project for me in both subject matter and visual style. It took a couple sketches to work out the composition and her pose.

This is a further exploration of my “Forever Growing Centipedes” piece. It may be too early to say, but maybe the concept has… legs? Seriously, though. I felt like returning to the more graphic style that I used to draw in. Over time I’ve noticed my art is steadily getting more detailed, which isn’t bad […]
“Forever Growing Centipedes” is a song by The Faint, from their 2008 album “Fasciinatiion.” I found it a bit weaker and more uneven than their previous efforts, although it still contained a lot of interesting things, like this. The album seemed a bit more experimental in terms of both musical style and lyrical content, for […]
1. Initial sketch. 2. Refined sketch. I was asked to change the roses to records to reflect the client’s husband’s interest in music. 3. Ink drawing. 4. Marker colors. 5. Final Photoshopped image.
This was a commission from a good friend of mine, a tribute to her husband’s guitar and other interests of his – surfing, fishing, music, and family. She married a man, in other words. She wanted his first guitar to be the centerpiece of the image. He also appreciates Day of the Dead-styled imagery, so […]
