New Works: Chuck Pahlaniuk for AU Mag, Deer Skull Tatoo Design, & Good Game EP Art

A portrait of the author Chuck Pahlaniuk (Fight Club, Choke, Diary, etc.) for AU Magazine. The concept is based on how Chuck hopes eventually people will realize and see the heart and sentiment underlying his work, if they don't already.  The words around his head represent the sort of terms and themes associated with him by the common person/reader, and the heart is his contrasting, more personal truth.

Deer skull tattoo design:

EP art for the London-based band, Good Game.  They wanted a sort of doodle-y, simple style black and white set of drawings for this, thus, a rather different-looking result from my usual work.

Illustration for Estates Review Magazine

An illustration I just finished for Estates Review, a British magazine. The accompanying article discusses the condition of the London real estate market, comparing today's buyers with money-hungry vultures. I decided to show this concept rather literally, with vultures circling over the city, pound signs rising up over an unassuming skyline like the stench of prey. The first image is the full view, and the second is a zoomed view. Click either to see a larger version of each.

Painted Portrait, Take Deuce.

Portrait commission. 15 inches x 20 inches. Acrylic on Board. I didn't much like how the last portrait I painted and posted turned out, so I started over from scratch, and painted a new portrait. Here is the result, take two. I think this one is a bit more successful, which is to say, it actually LOOKS like the person. Click image to see a larger version.
