Blood Money at Sto’s

Got a chance to throw up the Blood Money skull at Sto’s Old City Beer Garden in Old City Philly yesterday. Been 16 years since I picked up a spray can but I’m happy with the end result.

Here are a couple pics I found on Instagram of people chilling in front of the piece:

Also, since I always love when other artists post their #WIP shots I will as well:

I want to do more of this kind of stuff now, anyone have a blank wall I could borrow?

 

Cheers!

Interpreting Retro

Hey everybody! I started a new project called Interpreting Retro where I draw a picture of how I saw or imagined a retro game from my childhood. My Instagram account is @Phenzy and I hashtag these #interpretingretro. Here are the ones I’ve made so far:

slimeinsta

Yay! Dragon Warrior slime!

dragon-warrior

I know this wasn’t the intention, but this is always what the hero in the original Dragon Warrior looked like to me.

karnov

Karpov always looks like he is holding his pants up.

contra

The end heart boss in Contra always looked like Popeye to me.

little-nemo

Little Nemo climbing into animal suits always freaked me out a bit for a game that wasn’t supposed to be creepy.

zelda-the-end

I always thought the end of the original Zelda was pretty rough when Gannon died and became just a pile of guts.

castle-3

Cyclops from Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse.

eye-guy-cv2

Eyeball from Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest.

Stale as Hell

Samuel Adams just released a new beer called Fresh as Helles and it looks eerily similar to my illustration for Conshohocken Brewing Company I did over a year ago. Here is the new Sam Adams beer:

sam_adams_helles

My friends who brought it to my attention swear its a total rip off, I myself don’t really have an opinion. It seems super strange to me and I certainly feel that the design/art is not Fresh as Hell, but thats about it. I mean, it could be that someone got the idea from my illustration or it could be that someone just had a similar idea roughly a year after Blood Money came out, no way to really ever know. Either way, the Universe is strange.

blood-yo

Either way, Blood Money is coming back out real soon and I can’t wait to get my hands on some more of that super tasty juice!!! I’m gonna try Fresh as Helles as soon as I see it around as well.

Ghost Bear!

Hi Everybody,

I did 4 more labels for Conshohocken Brewing Company. One can and three bottles.

I did the artwork for Ghost Bear and all of the artwork/design for My Sweet Shadow, Ten Ton Hammer and Locust Star.

Here are some of my favorite photos of Ghost Bear from UnTapped.

Here are a couple of the bottle labels as well. I am super proud of the fonts. Everything except for the barcodes(when used) are hand done.

Festbier!

Here is another can I worked on for Conshohocken Brewing Company. Prost!

Here are a few of my favorite pics I grabbed from Untapped:

My biggest fan is my three year old daughter, so I had to include this fun owl over on the corner!

The beer is fantastic, easily one of my favorite Oktoberfests I have had. My other favorite is Stoudt’s. Go pick up a can or more and try it out.

Cheers!

Type A

type-A-fin-file

Conshohocken Brewing company just relaeased this super dank west coast IPA with some more of my artwork on it. Here are a few of my favorite Untapped pics of the beer below.

Can’t help but love any pic at the beach! The second pic shows off how super bright the can looks. The third pic is actually my pic from untapped (I built a little wooden framed sign for the pic, cause why not). Cheers!
