A personal project of a two panel piece of my memory of 1979 and how it connects with my creative endeavors, but also as a deaf person in ways that the visual overload of Bat Out Of Hell dwarved me to the point of being awed and inspired. The original image is actually much larger than it's seen here with being 11 by 17 inches for a 'cinematic' experience. It was illustrated entirely on Manga Studio software.
Illustration of " Deus Epee " which is a fictional patron god of rapier or epee, my weapon of choice in fencing.
Illustration of " Tenebrarum Domina Luporum " inspired by Toxic Vision, ultimately being created on Manga Studio as a final result. The print can be bought at my Society6 store.
VFA Shirt 2018
Fencing t-shirt design done on iPad Pro with Procreate and exported to Adobe Illustrator for the finalization process, inspired by the art nouveau period. This one is for the 25th anniversary March event of 2018.
VFA Shirt 2015
This shirt illustration was done in black and white entirely using Manga Studio and Adobe Illustrator CS5 for the Vermont Fencing Alliance's annual tournament.
It took about a week or so to finish it after some feedback and deciding on a green shirt as background color which led to a need for a transparent effect around the composition. But also inspired by the Game of Thrones concept as a theme but instead using a stone carved seating.

VFA Shirt 2015 Photo
This is the actual shirt based on the image I created. It was tricky to convert all the line art from Manga Studio into vector paths in Illustrator but I was amazed the print shop was able to pull it off, even though it was entirely in 600 DPI as I was trying to have more contrast to the image to stand out from the green background.
VFA Shirt 2013
The actual photo of the shirt design I did in 2013 for the Vermont Fencing Alliance.
VFA Shirt 2011
This is the 2011 edition of the t-shirt I designed for the annual event. I took a minimalist approach this time around inspired by a bit of Saul Bass and the infamous Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon" (1975) film poster.
