New artwork for local legends Hate Theory’s new album “III”. After fifteen years of hiatus the band is coming out of the grave for another album and show. I wanted to represent that awakening as well as incorporate a form of royalty as Hate Theory is one of the most important bands in my life as well as the local Kent metal scene.

I was recently commissioned with doing some illustrations for Belt’s Cleveland Guidebook. (Available here).
I just posted some original artwork up in my shop www.downpourcreative.storenvy.com
Artwork includes pieces done for Belt Magazine as well as other personal pieces done in ink, acrylic and watercolor. The store also features zines, shirts as well as other art prints. I’ve posted a sampling below.
Matt Stansberry and I went in search of rattlesnakes with a few guides for the next Belt magazine column. Geared up in thick boots and gator protectors, we hiked through woods, fields, and swampy areas in search of Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnakes. We turned up two rattlesnakes as well as a few garters and a brown snake.
For anyone keeping up with the monthly nature essays I’ve been illustrating for Belt Magazine, we are releasing limited prints and a collection of the essays from the past 6 months in print form called Redhorse: The Rustbelt Bestiary.
