This design was made for Swiss punk prog metal band The Erkonauts. The guys gave me creative freedom to come up with something that captured the spirit of their music and also matched the style I used to create their custom deck of playing cards.

This entire deck of cards was hand drawn and custom designed for Swiss punk prog metal band The Erkonauts. Their music is fun, catchy and creative so I did my best to visually represent those attributes. I chose to use their icon as the spiritual backbone of the project while adding hypnotic patterns of simple geometric shapes for congruence.

Design for Tasmanian metal band Zeolite. The band came to me with a request for a poster design that could be used for multiple things; cover, lyric video, stage banner and various merchandise. Using their single Compulsion as a source of inspiration, I crafted an eerie ritual site where their logo/crest spews powerful dark energy.

Multiple merch designs for Swedish metal band Humanity’s Last Breath. Buster came to me with a few concepts in mind for some new HLB merch. We collaborated through the entire design process to make sure the finished products reflected the darkness and power his music presents.

These shirt designs were created for Norwegian metal band Sphere. The guys came to me this time in need of two shirts: one design that would stand out amidst the sea of standard black band shirts. Another that showcased the band's logo on the front and tour dates on the back.
Using one of their newer songs, Sovereign, as a source of influence for the white shirt I came up with this abstract floating vessel. A combination of electrical and mechanical parts are bound together by a mysterious organic fluid.

Limited edition poster for the 9th Euroblast Festival in Germany. Only 100 copies were printed and sold at the festival back in 2013. For this design I wanted to pit musicians against monsters and let the monsters get their asses kicked for once.

These pieces were made to represent two of Sybreed's songs from God Is An Automaton: Into The Blackest Light and Red Nova Ignition.
For Red Nova Ignition, I came up with an entity that travels through space with one goal: "to set ablaze the cosmos in all directions". I thought it fitting to call him The Solar Newborn.
Inspiration for Into The Blackest Light was drawn directly from the chorus: "Here come the accuser obscuring the sky, intoxicating the soul. The serpent conspiring to engulf the world into the blackest light".
