Trump.

Here is an image of a Potato with Butthole Lips that I made.

It's obviously a little different than the main focus of my art portfolio as you can see, but there are a lot of new folks stopping by and I wanted to welcome them with the image that brought them here in the first place.

For starters, if you want more artwork similar to the one at the right, please feel free to visit my INSTAGRAM or my TUMBLR. There are also a couple of other fun little art projects that I have done that you can find on the sidebar if you want to dig around a bit.

To introduce myself, my name is Dusty. I make heavy metal artwork as a freelance artist and I also work in the video game industry as an artist for about 16 years now. I do a variety of different styles depending on my mood and this is one of them. 

I actually don't really get too political with my art, usually, but this was a case where I felt I needed to express myself with my pencil a bit. Everything basically speaks for itself and I don't need to really elaborate further.

I VERY much appreciate that you enjoy the artwork and I hope you check out all of my other art as well!

Also, because a lot of people have sent me messages about it, I do have  a SOCIETY6 page where you can buy a print or a shirt of this image. 

Cheers!

PureGrainAudio.com Best of 2015 (so far)

Thanks to PureGrainAudio for listing my album artwork for Oceano's "Ascendants" as the 4th best heavy metal album cover of the year so far! These guys have always been pretty supportive of me in the way of interviews and general promotion, but it's an honor to be actually listed in such a way like this!

Considering my output has been a little lower lately due to other demands in my life, this was a lovely thing to see this morning. I gotta make my art count when I release it!

Speaking of which, I do have some artwork to show very soon once clients release them!
Thanks for checking back.

Emerald City Comicon 2015 - That's a wrap!

Thanks for coming out everyone! I had a fun time even though I was unable to make it to my table on Friday due to car troubles.

The positive side of that, though, is that I actually have inventory this year! Usually, I sell out of my most popular prints and it takes me a long time to restock. This year, though, I am happy to say that all of my prints are available online! Please feel free to take a look and see what I have!

Thanks for visiting!

Album Artwork for Oceano's "Ascendants"

Here is my new album artwork for Oceano's new album, "Ascendants". I was really excited to work with these guys again as I previously worked with them for "Contagion" and had a pleasant experience then. For this art, it was quite a challenge, because they had a *massive* concept for this album and a lot of information that needed to be communicated in the piece itself. I am hesitant to really divulge too much at this stage as the album (and therefore the lyrics) are not out yet, but once that is all public I will speak more about my work here.

In the meantime, please enjoy this art as I really went outside of my personal comfort zone for this one!
Thanks for looking!
