“The Grey Between“, 24×36, acrylic on canvas. This was an evolved, difficult piece for me to do, both in using new techniques and content. The grey sometimes being a body for hungry crows, but more metaphorically as a barrier, cloud, or ash.
The Call of the Void guys are heading out on the road with Bleak in October. If you live east of the Rockies, they might be in your area then. Glad for the chance to design a poster with one of my favorite drawings too.
My first painting of 2015 (and 4 more to follow) is the one shown, as an abstract-style with Earthtones and organic forms. No sketch or linework on canvas was done, save for some routine mental composition that’s necessary, even for this type of work.
Here’s the art for the new Vallenfyre 7″, “The Last of Our Kind“, which will be available during the Decibel Magazine U.S. tour this Spring supporting At The Gates, Converge, and Pallbearer. This new design I drew keeps the grimness of their Splinters LP, while paying homage to those before them such as Axegrinder and Hellhammer, presented in the classic and Spartan flat graphic style of long ago. Musically, expect nothing less than two powder-burned and and shrapnel-torn broadsides from these talented veterans.
