Scared of Death

Here's a cover that I designed once to be in this animation project that can be seen here:

And then I made it a real piece of VHS box art for the VHS New Wave Show that I put together at Scarecrow Video.

VHSpresso Coffee Parodies

In order to help promote the VHSpresso coffee stand inside of Scarecrow Video in Seattle I came up with an on-going series of video cover parodies. They're all coffee themed and pretty ridiculous. I have to claim that Too Much Coffee Man is a huge influence on these.

Meat and Potatoes with Jem

The last poster I designed for the late Meat and Potatoes comedy show.
I enjoyed the hell out watching Jem to capture it's essence for this piece.

Wizards of Cockblock Forest (back cover of Devastator #5)

This is a cover for a faux role-playing game that appears on the back of the fantasy issue of Devastator a humor magazine along the lines of Cracked and the Onion.

Computer Error

The poster I illustrated and designed for Computer Error the Worst of C.G.I. presented by Martin and Lawrence.

This collage-like film highlights the most atrocious computer generated images in film to date. This will convert the most die-hard fan of computer graphics.

It debuted in Austin and has played in Seattle recently.

VHSpresso design work

So one of the jobs I have at Scarecrow Video is sign-maker/designer. I come up with a lot of the signage for sections in the store. The latest super special section that we set up is the coffee cart. They named it VHSpresso and I've done all the design work for it so far. Below are some logos, signs, and etc. that I've worked on.

Here are the menu's. One for the wall behind the counter and one for the walk-up window. The one below is a manipulated back cover of VHS box art for "Runaway Train". 

Above is our stamp that we put on all the cups. Below is a web banner that I animated for the Scarecrow Video blog. 

Another piece of manipulated VHS box art from the movie "I Will... I Will... For Now". 

Here's proof that the signage is in place. "Like" VHSpresso on Facebook and stop by for some terrific coffee. We proudly use "7 Roasters" which is a local roaster and it's delicious.

Movie Orgy poster

The Grand Illusion in Seattle is bringing this legendary 4 1/2 hour cult classic movie mash-up from the 60's to their screen at the end of the month!!

I was more than happy to design this poster. And more than happy to be using a mushroom cloud in a poster. After this month, I cannot wait to see sit back and relax while this washes over me for 4 and 1/2 hours.

Spider-man Cornered

For my friend Jon Morris's blog "Cornered" I re-created a Spider-man corner ID. It is below and can also be found amongst many clever corner ID re-creations at the Cornered Blog.

A corner I re-created at the birth of this blog was for She-Hulk. I just went ahead and just re-imagined the green goddess.

Psychotronic Cinema

SIFF (Seattle International Film Fest) is putting on a promising new series called Psychotronic Cinema and I was asked to come up with a logo for it.
I was happy to get gross and grimy with this. Really pulling up all my influences from Garbage Pail Kids to Max Clotfelter.
I'm also proud to have something like this associated with the upcoming Don Hertzfeldt screening featuring the artist himself.

Meat and Potatoes Go To the Beach

Since winter here in Seattle is generally grey and depressing, Corbett Cummins asked that I put Meat and Potatoes on the beach in the Archie Universe this time.
I did so and while they were there, Meat and Potatoes kicked a little sand around.
Around the head of the bully who kicked sand in Archies cute little face! Get'em Meat! Hold'em down Potatoes!!

Drinky Movie Holiday Spectacular

So the Entertainment Show put on another Drinky Movie Show and it was for the Holidays!! You know the "holidays" I'm talking about.
I designed and illustrated another poster with Derek Sheen as the Grinch, Travis Vogt as Jack Frost, and Kevin Clarke as a lovable Gremlin.
This was also a release party for the complete Adventure Buddies DVD set. Which features artwork by me and you can BUY ONE NOW!!! 


The Grand Illusion in Seattle put on a single showing one night that honored the wonderful holiday specials and films that could still be found on VHS! Here's the poster that I created for that event! Snow flakes and lightning!!!

Meat and Potatoes in Tintin Land

Corbett Cummins puts on a show monthly called Meat and Potatoes, and I do an elaborate poster for each one. Each one has the characters Meat (arena fighter?) and Potatoes (a Agatha Christie-like detective) interacting within a new cartoon world usually based on a known cartoon franchise. The month of December we put them into a world similar to Tintin. Timely, No? Here they're looking for a mysterious man in the Tombs of the Terracotta Warriors.
Where will the end up next?

Drinky Movie Show

Here's a poster for the first Drinky Movie Show put on by Derek Sheen, Travis Vogt and Kevin Clarke at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard, Washington. It was a show dedicated to comedians talking about film, presenting short films, and dissection of horrible movies.


Now that DC and other comic companies are reinventing many of their properties, Jon Morris came up with the idea to ask artists to come up with their own type of reboot by coming up with their own covers for popular or obscure characters. Most likely these will prove to be better than what the real companies can come up with. Here are my pieces that appear on the Relaunched blog.

Back when Relaunched was called "DC Fifty Too", I submitted my version of CLAW the Unconquered. Here's the post with all the information.

Then the relaunching idea spread to the Marvel Universe with "WHAT IF..." and so I did my take on Spider-man
