Athena

This painting didn't turn out the way I imagined, but I did learned a lot from doing this painting. The painting did fit the very early concept, but as the painting progressed, the concept kept on changing.

After the initial sketch, the painting needs time to mature in your head. As you look at the sketch over time, you might add new things. At some point there is nothing more you can do but to start painting. It's rare that a new concept is fully formed and it's ready for paint.

Dragon Tattoo

Doing a tattoo style art was fun and a learning experience. Experimenting with different art style can expand your mind to what's possible, even if the style is far from your own work. It doesn't need to fit any academic mold or follow the latest trend.

This is one of my favorite t-shirt design I’ve done so far. I love the concept. Cosmonaut holding a AK47 in space and on the helmet it says vodka in russian.

Lucha Libre Thunder

For awhile I've been wanting to flex my graphic design skill for t-shirts and other products. What makes this creative process interesting is, illustration has no limit on what you can create. But when you're designing for a t-shirt, you have to consider how they're going look on an end product, so you have to work with in a set parameter. It's a completely different sandbox than illustrating, opening up to new visual abstracts.
