Death Comes Ripping

deathcomes
I was listening to the Misfits a couple nights ago and Death Comes Ripping came on. I put this illustration together, the song always reminded me of some kind of a winged death swooping down. I put the design up on my shop. You can buy it on all kinds of things like pillows/shirts etc. There is also FREE SHIPPING until August 10th at midnight!

A Very Punk Rock Halloween

It’s almost Halloween! Well, a month away… but still, close enough. My wife wanted me to cut a Jack-o-lantern but she wanted something different. She said “Hey, how about the Misfits Fiend Skull?”. Now, I knew this was impossible because you can’t make it as a one piece stencil so how could you cut a pumpkin into the Fiend Skull???

Well, I decided it was going to happen no matter what. I said “Yeah, sure…no problem!” She went and got me a foam pumpkin from AC Moore while I sat at home trying to figure how I was going to pull this one off.

Well… I’m happy to say it all worked out in the end. ¬†Below you will find the finished product.

It was actually a lot easier than I expected it to be. I suspended the nose on a piece of brake line for a car. I cut the brake line down to size and suspended the nose on it. I originally thought I would also have to suspend the brake line or create a bracket underneath in a T shape, but since the brake line and foam nose are both so lightweight just attaching it to the back and securing it was enough. I think it turned out pretty rad if I do say so myself.

I know I don’t normally post crafts on this blog (though I do make them quite regularly), but I felt that this really fits the theme of this site quite nicely.

While I’m posting crafts I might as well post something else that I recently made for my house. ¬†Below you will find our new door mat.

I stole the idea from Fat Mike though! I saw it while my wife and I were watching The Other F Word on Netflix Instant streaming. It’s a pretty fun documentary if your in to the whole punk rock thing. Anyway, thanks for checking out my stuff! See you next time!


20 Eyes

Here is something that I painted for fun over the past 2 days:

(My scanner made it look a little different than it really looks, pulled more of the yellows out that you normally wouldn’t see. I think it still looks pretty cool though)

20 eyes in my head
20 eyes in my head
They’re all the same, they’re all the same

When you’re seeing 20 things at a time
You just can’t slow things down, baby
When you’re seeing 20 things in your mind
Just can’t slow things down

Then all those eyes
They’re just crowding up your human face
Then all those eyes
Take an overload

The scanner makes it look a little different than it really does, but it still looks cool. Acrylic/Pencil/Watercolor.

Here is the initial sketch I did:

I don’t really like sketchbooks and almost all of my sketches end up on scraps of paper, napkins or blank spots on newspaper ads.

Anyway, hope you guys like!
