So a long time fan of my work from Sweden asked me to touch up an old stencil design I did for a tattoo… I was super flattered but it was legit the first stencil I EVER cut. I was drunk in 2007, and drew the design on a back of a pizza box and sprayed it like 20 minutes later ha. My art has just come a long, long way since that. So I redesigned it a bit so that I’d feel comfortable with someone getting a death bear inked on them forever lol. I’m really happy with how it came out and it was actually really fun to go back and do a new take on a very old design. So thank you Victor for being the most bad ass fan possible.
My buddy Scott rented a Lake house and invited all of us old school bros from Ithaca to come back to visit. He asked me to make a t-shirt design for the week and said “It can be whatever” so I just drew the coolest things I could think of Andre The Giant, Grave Digger, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and the epic arm wrestling match from Predator. I was suppose to give this to him a week or so ago and but I’m the worst and I’m always late with everything…. so I knocked this out this morning lol.
Do you know I have a weekly instagram web comic BRAIN EATING BASTARDS?! Follow it on IG
So, I’ve had the idea for a cartoon/ comic book called BRAIN EATING BASTARDS in the back of my head for literally years. The story is based around my real life one armed friend Aaron who spends his time in a post-apocalypic world killing everyone he ever hated (Ex’s, Landlords, shitty bar patrons) now that they are in zombie form and just being an all around outlaw bad ass. I even did some character designs and sample animations around 2009 for it, but after moving away to Brooklyn and leaving my flash animation job in Ithaca the project never went anywhere and just sat in the back of my mind.
Be a couple months ago, Meet a cool dude named Patrick J. Reilly who works a comic book shop while I’m bouncing at a bar. Mention I always had an idea for a comic book, invites me to do a web comic launch at the shop Carmine Street Comics in Manhattan. BOOM DONE! So I’d really like to thank Patrick, and all of the people at Carmine Street Comics for having me and all of my friends who popped in to hangout! This will get cool, I promise a lot of zombie bears and all around grossness.

So keeping up with my zombie pro wrestlers, I just knocked out this Andre The Giant/Hulk Hogan WRESTLEMANIA 3 zombie stare down. I saw some clothes lines with Zombie Wrestler shirts and it bummed be out… its hard to be original in the world today mang. But seeing how “Regular show” already had an episode with “THE DEATH BEAR” and everyone confuses my Death Bears for Mishka anyway I figured, Whatever I’ll just keep on doing what I want.
Someone want to give me a job?
Zombie Ultimate Warrior… with his skin peeled off where is face paint should be. Hell fucking yea right?!
I gotta tell you, I feel like every time I draw something… it becomes the newest “BEST THING I’VE EVER DONE!” and its such a good feeling.
I’m kinda sick of being a broke ass… I’m going to work on being internet famous now lol.
Anyone remember this game? Shit ruled.
You know I usually never really do coloring like this… I prefer to to use black as my negative space/shading (Much like Hellboy, Sin City ect.) but seeing how these aren’t my bear designs I decided to change it up… Plus I think it adds to the over all gross look I’m going for. Like I said I’m going to be doing some more pop culture drawings… so expect a lot of Sega/Super NES characters, Pro Wrestlers, and cool movie bad guys soon.
I decided to start drawing pro wrestlers and cartoon characters more because… I want to get my shit more noticed… and I don’t feel like a sell out if I draw stuff I love anyway lololol.
Let me take you through my broke ass ghetto process right now… I don’t have a scanner anymore.. So I take a picture of my drawing with my iphone. I don’t have a legit computer so I color this on my 8 year old laptop with the built in mouse lol.
Once the weather in Brooklyn decides to stop being a bag of dicks I’m excited to start my street art game back up…. Word Up… Death Bear loves you fucks
