Big shoutouts to the artists these pieces are based off of and to the people who followed each piece as I was posting them throughout the month <3

Knife Party & Tom Morello - Battle Sirens

Today is the official release date of Knife Party and Tom Morello's collab track "Battle Sirens"! It's also the first official feature of the KP characters on a Knife Party track!!

I also got to work on the video for this track, too:

I've been a fan of Tom Morello since middle school, frequently listening to Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave. Fast forward to 2012, post-graduating from college I drew this character for the first time:

"Battle Sirens" is a track that combines my music tastes from growing up to the present and having the opportunity to work on the art for it is surreal. 
So many feels. 

I can't even.

Arts That I Haven't Posted On This Blog Yet

I need to stay up to date in posting new art on this blog. Here's some pieces done from May to July 2016:

Collab Series
(A quick series of collaborative tracks from certain artists I like ;) )

Anatomical Bird Study
(I had a hard time understanding how bird skeletons work so this was a stab at trying to comprehend their anatomy.)

(Various pen and marker drawings. Been doing more of these lately, they're usually featured on my Instagram or Twitter.)

Zucat Monsterbat v2.0
(Been playing Pokemon GO and my legs feel AMAZING. I've been sitting on my butt for nearly 4 years drawing all day and now suddenly this app gets me to walk two miles in rainy weather just to catch Pokemon on my way to work.)

Then I went on a splurge of drawing people because people are fun to draw and I don't do it often enough:

(Been watching various anime shows and these two characters have been favourites all throughout completing these shows. Top is Vincent Law from Ergo Proxy; bottom is Vash the Stampede from Trigun.)

(I did a series of Pokemon-Inspired Fashion Design and there were some characters I really liked and wanted to explore more of their backstories. Top two characters (left to right) are troublemakers Ekki and Kory (Ekans and Koffing); bottom two are skater friends Troy and Yana (Tropius and Yanmega).)

(Revamped some MOTH characters ;) )
