MetalBandArt article about Six Feet Under - "Undead" cover

If you head on over to MetalBandArt, you can see an article that I wrote about the process I used to make the new Six Feet Under album cover.

There are a lot of stages to making a cover like this, so I really wanted to give a sneak peak into some of them for fans, of course, but also young artists who are curious about my techniques. Helping young artists is something that is very important to me, because I remember what it was like to be 19 years old and completely clueless on what to do. All I knew was "draw more!" and for the most part that is still the advice I give on a high level. But there are still a lot of things that I can share to hopefully enlighten people to my process, at least, and if they can take something away from that or even just get inspired then that means the world to me.

So head on over there and let me know what you think! 
Also, for this week only, there is a contest to win one of my prints! How cool is that? 


Reign in Art Interview.


A lot of interviews lately! I actually did this one a few months ago, but it just so happens to be coinciding with a couple of the other ones I recently did. I apologize if I said the same thing a couple of times. You can check out the interview here


The Hatchet Times Interview.

I did an interview with Raphael Berrios at The Hatchet Times about my new album cover for Six Feet Under's "Undead"! Check it out here!


Six Feet Under - UNDEAD

At long last, I can finally show the art for the new Six Feet Under album, "Undead".

This was a pretty gnarly one to do. We must have went through 20 sketches or so before we found one that was just right and oddly enough the sketch for this one was one of the most basic ones that I did. Chris Barnes really latched onto the concept behind it, though, and the rest is history.

There's a lot going on...a lot of hidden meanings that I will leave you to figure out on your own.

 There is even a subtle homage to a past album design. Anyways, enough's the cover and the band photo! 


A huge thank you!

Emerald City Comicon 2012 is in the bag! I just wanted to thank everyone that stopped by my table. It was great meeting you!

Due to the success of the convention, I am currently out of stock on a couple prints. Specifically, "Nigh", "Universus", and "The Fathomless Mastery" will be delayed in shipping if you order them for a week or so until I get some more from my printer. I apologize for the delay, but it's only because you guys bought so many of them! So thank you again!

I also wanted to thank Kevin and Ian from 99.9 KISW's Metal Shop for having me in the studio last weekend. That was quite an experience! We took requests for things for me to draw while I was there and there were some pretty crazy requests!  Sorry I couldn't get to all of them, but I hope you like the ones that I was able to get to. If you want to check them out, you can head over to the 99.9 facebook page.

I won't be doing any more conventions for the year to focus on making more art (both personal and freelance), so the next time I see you will be at Emerald City Comicon 2013! Stay metal!
