Some Sketches and 'What-if's'

I've been having fun doing some sketchwork recently, thought I'd post a few up. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram (@1000styles) you've already seen these but I wanted to have them here too.
I also did a couple "what-if" sketches, these aren't actual contracted projects from the Black Dahlia Murder or Job For A Cowboy, just took a few minutes with a couple sketches to see what they'd look like as t-shirt graphics for these bands. I liked how they turned out so here they are.

Another Sweet Skate Deck Illustration Job for Demon Seed

This time I got to do an Animal Farm-esque doll head boneyard of sorts, had lots of fun with this one. The creepier the better...big up to Demon Seed for letting me go wild on stuff like this.

Silence is Golden

With a Noose Around My Neck

Recently did this graphic for The Devil Wears Prada, I'm pretty sure I like how it came out. It should be for sale at their merch table as you read this, on their current tour with As I Lay Dying. Hopefully it printed well! It has a back graphic too, but it's just a type treatment so I won't bother posting it. The front is really where it's at. The art is actually loosely based on the true story of a man named John Babbacombe Lee - an Englishman who was sentenced to hang in 1885 for the murder of his elderly employer, but because of gallows malfunctions three separate times, he survived his sentence. He eventually made his way to America, supposedly made money off his story, and died sometime in the first half of the 20th century. I just liked the story so I based the art off it. Hope you dig it.

Just finished this little beast. I'm naming him Kevin. Standing tall at a full three inches, he's not a big guy but definitely makes up for it with that bite. Structurally, he's a repurposed plastic toy combined with an authentic found squirrel skull, finished in acrylic paint. I had a lot of fun making this, it's my first foray into sculpture since high school I think. Might have to go looking for more skulls and make this the first of a series. Who knows. I think I'll probably put him up for sale in my shop within a few days, until then I'll just keep him on the kitchen table and gross out my wife. Ha!
