Pickup Lines

People Magazine / Bauer Media / Editor: Shane Cubis

Energetic bar scene for a double-page spread.  The brief was to leave space for speech balloons citing various tried, true, and funny pickup lines.  I aimed to create fluid characters, two lines of characters (upper and lower) and a redd-ish hue that would tie it all in together.

Tales From the Pit: Soilwork

Revolver Magazine / Art Director: Natalie Skopelja

Here's a fun illustration for Revolver Magazine (USA). It's for the 'Tales From the Pit' section, in which musicians share interesting stories from the road.  This one is Bjorn Speed from the band Soilwork, and how their bass player Ola ended up going through the stage one night.
