Death Comes Ripping

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!


Here is a new acrylic painting that I just finished up. My scanner chopped a little bit from both sides (more-so the right side though). Poor Owl!


I think I stumbled upon something awesome with these floating heads with the bones sticking out. Hahahahahahahahaha.

I also joined a local artists group in my town called the Media Arts Council. Here is their link: M*A*C, hopefully I can get a couple new shows through this over the next year or so!

Here is one of my favorite album covers that I decided to “re-make” or cover. I used a photo of the moon landing US flag and Elijah Wood from the film Everything is Illuminated. I don’t normally do stuff like this (working with existing images/collage), but I felt that in this case it worked pretty well. I included a pretty large file if you click on the cover so that you can download and use it in your iTunes collection. I plan to do many more of these so keep an eye out for more! Hope you enjoy!

Face Maker

There was a game for the TI-99 that I used to own called Facemaker, I used to love playing this game all day long. It was very simple, but you could make endless (or it felt endless at the time) combinations of faces. It’s still a ton of fun to make random faces. I drew these faces on the covers of old books and then picked what I wanted the characters to say afterwards. The first guy looked like he was waking up from a nightmare and for the second guy I picked a qoute from a Dead Kennedys song. Hope you like!


My brother-in-law, my wife and I are in the band Seltzer. It’s really just the two of us and anyone else that is around who feels like they want to sing. We have a few songs from our first single titled “Sandwich Single + Sides” over on
We have been kicking around the idea of putting out a full album soon and calling it “Real Big Dish”. I sat down and made a cover for the album tonight, it was a good practice for me because I’ve been thinking that I want to do more “Punk Rock”(Or at least what I interpret that to be) style artwork which is something I’ve gotten away from over the past few years. Someone over on my other blog ( referred to this style as grungy, and I’m OK with that too. Basically I just like the idea of simplifying some of my illustration work back down to its most basic elements, and I think I achieved this with this illustration.
Anyway, here is the insert for the album:
