Twisted Metal

Ok this a long story here. C&G magazine contacted me to do some cover work for their magazine for the new Twisted Metal game, because Sony at the time didn't have the time to provide any assets. So I had to base all the artwork from the previous version of Twisted Metal(because I was given very little reference that sony provided, basicaly a brochure with some tiny pics of the arena to work from). It was cool I was really happy with the piece, and C&G was cool with it. And I herd that Jaffe gave it a approval as well.
But somewhere along the lines Sony suddenly was able to come up the resources and decide to do everything internal (got the face palm). I've seen before with big publishers, where things get muttled down the line . But what can you do.

I'm saddened that it wasn't used, but I was surprised they used a simular layout as the one I did. But at the end of the day I have a cool piece that I really had fun and doing a type of grindhouse style  to a very cool game!

And now able to post it (and I guess you can compare it to the other cover down the road)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

I did this Illustration for Lucid Media magazine.
This was a interview with the author Seth Grahame-Smith.
It was fun to try to get a represntation of the author into fiction of the book.
The expression from the photo I was given by the editor worked really well with zombies.

My colours ended being old and victorian. My friend Charlene suggested to push it further by adding canvas and a frame(big credit goes to her!). It made us laugh... I think it was just the right element to make it work.
