Finished painting up a bunch of new skulls, go check them out on my Deviantart page here!
Here is one of my favorite album covers that I decided to “re-make” or cover. I used a photo of the moon landing US flag and Elijah Wood from the film Everything is Illuminated. I don’t normally do stuff like this (working with existing images/collage), but I felt that in this case it worked pretty well. I included a pretty large file if you click on the cover so that you can download and use it in your iTunes collection. I plan to do many more of these so keep an eye out for more! Hope you enjoy!
A little something I painted on an old book cover. I enjoy painting these little paintings on old book covers immensely. To see more of my artwork check out Penandmarker.wordpress.com as well. Also, feel free to contact me at Phenzyart@gmail.com for all your illustration/creative needs.
I’m about halfway through finished reading the book Among the Thugs by Bill Buford. It is a book about football clubs in England. It’s a very fun read so far and I felt like taking a break and drawing up something. I drew a bunch of fans at the game carrying on and drinking beer. Here are some reviews of the book I found on Amazon:
“A grotesque, horrifying, repellent and gorgeous book; A Clockwork Orange come to life.” —John Gregory Dunne
“An important, perhaps prophetic, book … both exciting and sad at the core…. [Buford is] a superbly talented reporter.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Brilliant … one of the most unnerving books you will ever read.” —Newsweek
Like Michael Herr or Ryszard Kapuscinski, Buford has witnessed events which can only be compared in intensity to those of a war … an unflinching look into the festering soul of England … a fuckin’ great read.” —David Byrne
Animated, witty, and so pungent you can taste the stale lager.” —Washington Post Book World
It’s been awhile since I’ve done anything for this page. So I decided to draw this Wrestler/Lucha libre guy.After finishing him I realized I had no reason to draw him, but since I was drinking a Omission beer(the Pale Ale kind) I turned the drawing into an advertisement for this wonderfully magic beer that doesn’t hurt my tummy!
The MEGA MAN BOSS BATTLE online store is live! Go check it out here!
Copy X by Pat Henzy
Go check out my piece, and you should buy a print cause that would be super awesome!
I feel like I have been neglecting this website and unfortunately it is true… the fact that I have both this website and my pen and marker website that I try to keep running (even though I finished my 365 days of drawing a while back) sometimes I’m not sure which page to post things to. On top of that that I also started a Tumblr page called Mega 8 just for my video game related artwork, so it ends up being a lot of work to keep up with everything that I have going on(but I still love working on all of the sites that I run). Oh well… I will make up for it by updating you with some of the things that I have been up to lately.
First, tonight my wife and I donated artwork to a great cause. We donated to the Music for the Arts Benefit that is held in our hometown. You can read all about the night here.
I also had the honor of being part of the Megaman Boss Battle Tribute which is happening currently online and in March in San Francisco at Gauntlet Gallery.
There are a ton of awesome artists involved in the show (including Ashley Davis who is one of my favorites). You can check out the Megaman Boss Battle here.
Here is my piece from the show, Copy X from the Megaman Zero series.
I decided to take Copy X in a direction that I didn’t think everyone would expect. I think all in all it turned out pretty awesome.
I have also been working with a super awesome company who we all know and love who rents out movies. Its just in the planning stages and kind of supposed to be kept under wraps but I can’t wait till the project comes to completion so that I can share the end result.
