Pale Pete was created to represent pale lager beers, and he is loosely based on the main character from the movie "Pale Rider".
No photo references were used for the character, Pete was drawn straight from my head, but some royalty-free photo references were used for the character's arms and legs, boots, badge, gun, and holster.
Created in full color in Photoshop, from a pencil on paper base drawing.
I'm a visual artist, with both digital and traditional art skills. I am a graduate of The Art Institute of Philadelphia, and I took my foundation art courses at Parsons School of Design.
I recently launched a company called Draft House Studios, and I now specialize in the creation of draft-beer related artwork,
I am a versatile artist, but cartooning is my favorite kind of art to create. I also very much enjoy portraiture, mascot design, and illustrative typography.
