Shirt Mania!

It's an exciting weekend here at Expiring Sun HQ. The first round of a series of shirts with my drawings arrived! And I've already sold over half of them, crazy!

Two different options are available, "The Gate" and "Perpetual Puke Machine." Printed in light grey on super soft Anvil® ring spun cotton tees! And printed with love by the masterful Sam McCanna at

Skurvy Ink


They are available at my store here:

Last night I wrapped up a poster for the new sci-fi action flick MANBORG directed by Steven Kostanski. I had a blast putting this together. Make sure and give the Manborg Facebook page a like and follow happenings with the movie on Twitter!

There's a few photos of the poster in progress below, along with the teaser trailer. I want to do more movie posters... hint hint ;)

Hammers of Misfortune Shirt Illustration


John Cobbett

of the mighty

Hammers of Misfortune

 contacted me to do some artwork for a new shirt. After some heavy brainstorming based on the lyrics of the new album

17th Street

 and keeping up with John's


posts regarding the Occupy Movement, I felt like I had a pretty good grasp about what the shirt should be. Here is the final illustration with a few close ups. The shirt should be available on HoM's upcoming tour as well, so be on the look out! And if you haven't heard

17th Street

yet, you are seriously missing out. It is one of the most monumental albums I have heard in a very long time and is without a doubt one of the best, if not THE best album of 2011. Along with the artwork I'm also including the title track from their new album. Check it out!

The Fifth Fire

Recently, local Wichita, Kansas alternative rockers The Fifth Fire asked me to design them an album cover. After a nice discussion with their singer Mark Bryant about their music and how to portray it visually, we decided to run with the idea of a figure of significant power or royalty who, despite his social standing, is in a state of sadness. They currently don't have any of the recordings on their


page, but hopefully they will soon. The cd comes out June 18th.
