Crakens: Fan Art

I have the deepest respect for artists who put those ideas in their heads to paper and begin to build a complete world.  Thats what Martin Hsu is doing as he continues to grow his CRAKENS.  Please look beyond my sketch-e-ness and join the CRAKENS on Facebook.

Surfer Demon: Visual Color Remix

Adding some extra color to my Surfer Demon design.  There are limits in screen printing and its fun to stretch from those limitations sometimes.  Enjoy and thank you for the awesome support!

Illustration Friday: influence

A couple strong influences have crossed my art table recently...

I was trying to warm-up one day and drew some influence from tofusquirrel with this lil kitty :)

Also, I currently have the Caged Warrior in production and I really felt the Keith Haring influence emerge out after I vectorized the original drawing.  Very pleased with the high contrast in the final image.

Thank You,

Brett Schmidt

Arena New York: A Current Mix with a Classic Touch

I just finished the cover to Gerard Mattera's latest podcast, check out the updated Arena beats below:

Here is how Gerard describes it: "I Did this Set as the Evolution of Arena, and my painted vision of what it would feel like today. There are a mixture of Arena Classics "Touch" France Jolie, "Every Hour on The Hour", Brutal Bill's "Destiny", and Rodger S. "Walking on the moon" to name a Few... Enjoy it and ENTER THE ARENA!!!"
