Zombie tshirt

Happy Halloween!

I've had an overwhelming response to my Star Wars travel poster post below. I appreciate all the comments. I'm hoping that the number of people interested will help with trying to get them printed. I'll let you all know when that happens.

While I'm waiting, I've jumped on the Zombie bandwagon. Actually this is the first of a "classic monster" tshirt series I'm working on. Each one based on a restaurant theme. It's sort of an homage to the premier of AMC's Walking Dead series.

Either I'm the biggest wimp in the world or I have a very over-active imagination. I'd like to think its the latter, but I know myself (I couldn't sleep for a week after seeing "The Ring"). I actually had a zombie nightmare the night after I did the thumbnail sketches for this.

A zombie diner tshirt has been done before, but I wanted to try my hand at it. And because I'm not very good at self editing, there are a couple of different colour combos and distressed or not distressed.

They are available at

Vintage Star Wars travel posters

**UPDATE** click here!
Well, I've been sitting on these for two years now (that is far too long) and since then I've seen every kind of Star Wars mash up imaginable (but hope to see some more creative ones in the future). I say "since then" because I really wasn't looking too hard before I completed these.

They are very much inspired by some of the vintage travel posters of the early 20th century.

These were done in association with a website in order to have them printed. That website is still working on making that a reality. I'm crossing my fingers for a quick resolve. So, for now they are just here to look at.

I decided I couldn't wait any longer to show them. With the release of the art book Star Wars: Visions, and everyone else sharing their awesome Star Wars inspired art, I wanted to throw mine into the web mix.

There are eight in all and you can see all of them together here.

If interested and you want to know when they will be available, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you. Thanks.

Halloween Jack 'o Leaf

As Halloween approaches, I've been thinking about what to carve in our pumpkins. Then I remembered this design I made a few years ago. It's for all the Canadians and maple leaf fans out there. It fits a medium-sized pumpkin.

The template:
Print this out and tape it to your pumpkin. Use a toothpick and poke holes along the dotted lines. This will give you a guide to cut when the paper is off. Cut out and remove all the grey shapes.

Unlit (sort of looks like a smiling jack'o lantern, eh?):

Retro Thursday*

How about a little Terminator assembly line image. Created many years ago. Definitely some perspective issues, but I was young and lazy.

*In an effort to post something at least once a week I'll be showing some artwork from the archives every Thursday.

Retro Thursday* (one day early)

I won't have an opportunity to post for a few days so I'll use today as my Thursday.

This one is fairly recent (within the last 5 years). It was designed as a wraparound book cover for an unwritten story. I think I was trying to create a sense of drama. I'll call it "Aurora Borealis".

Geek Anthem

Geek Anthem, a website that "celebrates geeks and geek culture with a unique voice" was kind enough to post an entry focusing on my cartoon concert posters.

Be sure to visit them and take a look around. Some great info, illustrations and design.

Cartoon Concert Posters

Here is my latest series. They are concert posters based on 1980s cartoons. I wanted to try my hand at doing gig posters but needed a subject, so I turned to my youth and thought these would make good, fun, fake posters. All are up and for sale now.

Some come in different colour combinations as well as 'distressed' to look aged. To see the rest, visit my Zazzle and Imagekind stores.

I also turned one of them into a concert tshirt. Some of the shirts have cities listed on the back. I plan to do the same with the other posters. All of the shirts are customizable by colour and shirt style. Many to choose from.

The above art and posters are in no way affiliated with any bands or shows. 100% unofficial.
