It's New Years Eve and I just finished a month-long self-imposed vacation from freelance art. 2010 was an incredibly busy year for me. I did 3 paintings for Oceano, a shirt for Cattle Decapitation, about 7 pieces of various merchandise for Six Feet Under, and many more. I figured after essentially working 2 jobs all year long I deserved a little break for the holidays to keep myself fresh for 2011.
While a lot of the Six Feet Under is still under NDA, they have announced their new DVD entitled, "Wake the Night: Live in Germany", which I did the cover design for. I had a lot of fun with this one, because I usually just go for a straight up illustration approach, and this one was a little more "designy". I know that SFU is pretty excited about this dvd, so please check it out when it's released in April! It's sure to be brutal!
As for what I'll be working on, I do have a couple of announcements. Behold the Monolith is coming out with a new album and they have asked me to do their next cover. If you've been to my site you have probably already seen my previous album cover for them, so you can be sure it will be pretty nutty. That's still a little ways off, though. The next immediate thing I'll be working on is an album cover for Italian band, Dawn Under Eclipse. They have and awesome concept for their cover and I am really excited to start on it in a week or so. There's already a lot of other things lined up for the year, too, but a little early to announce them.
So with that, I hope everyone has a very metal new year and stay safe!
