Roctober #51

roctober-51

I drew the cover for issue #51 of Roctober, the best music magazine in the world. It was the special Comedy & Novelty Records issue, a subject after my own heart, and it’s the first cover I’ve done for the magazine in something like 15 years of working with them. I’m super happy with how it turned out and it looks even better in print.

In 2008 I did a bunch of spot illustrations for Sports Northwest Magazine, edited by old school chum Seth Kolloen. These were done fast and cheap but they have an antic charm to them.

Matt Lindland

I was hired to do a DVD cover for an unofficial Matt Lindland MMA compilation. I was experimenting with combining flat color with black watercolor washes. It came out pretty cool.
