SOME RECENT COMMISSIONS

SOME SWEET MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS…

Here’s a little wedding gift I did for the Forest Fairy Bride and her Groom…

And a beautiful sea turtle!

PUNK ROCK JESUS

Probably the most fun commission I had over the holidays: 
A portrait of “Punk Rock Jesus” colored pencil/Sharpie combo.
SO fun, in fact, I decided to throw in a PRJ print prayer candle!
I was lucky enough to be selected to design the image for Sarah Peacock’s 2016 “Dream On” tour shirt!
Sarah wanted her vintage tour bus (named Carla) featured in the design, and an overall retro styling.  
Once my artwork was complete, Sara’s graphics team transformed it
with some eye-popping color – amazing!

SOMEONE’S FAVORITE KACHINA

LOTS OF ORDERS FOR CUSTOM PAINTED CROSSES, TOO!

A GROOVY DIA DE LOS MUERTOS THEMED GUITAR

And lastly, this is what happens when you hit up "gigs-creative" on Craigslist.
Sure, I could've turned it down, but as a freelance artist specializing in custom work I accepted it, not only because the price was right, but also as a chance to show that I don't need to agree with or even like your idea in order to knock out a quality piece that's exactly what you had in mind. The lady that ordered this as a gift seemed like she didn't like the idea either, but she must LOVE the recipient...kinda like the time that my mom bought me a Howard Stern book for Christmas, and I - as much as I really wanted to shoplift it - bought her a Rush Limbaugh book.

“PEPPERMINT PATTY” AND CEELO

My friend and owner (nickname: Peppermint Patty) of one of my favorite lil doggies on the planet, and her boy himself, Ceelo! They will also be getting a coloring page of the design to have some fun with later. (You know, when Ceelo feels like coloring.)

“LO PAN”

5” x 7” Sharpie commission

“CLEAN YOUR KARMA”

5” x 7” Sharpie commission

BRIAN WILSON

TANA SATANA

NIGHT AND DAY

A light-up piece embellished with glass and mirrors over a hand-painted custom design.  Gorgeous during the day, it takes on a whole new life in the dark!  Battery-operated LED lights on a timer allow for a no-fuss, automatic on/off daily cycle.
My latest commissioned furniture piece was delivered on the 4th of July!  This small cabinet will be used to house RainShine Designs’ etsy inventory (and make the RSD studio a little bit cuter!).

CHECK OUT A RECENT COMMISSIONED FURNITURE PIECE!

I started with a very sturdy and elegant small chest of drawers, shopped from a local consignment store.  I then went to work on a custom design featuring lizards, as per the client’s wishes. 
...
Once I had approval on the layout, the piece was meticulously hand-painted in colors to coordinate with the client’s décor and sealed.  The result was nothing short of stunning and this piece was absolutely MADE for “right there!”
These shoes were painted for a special bride,
and incorporated her decor theme;
polka dots and bright flowers.
This is the title piece for Paul Ludenia's CD release in early 2016.  I worked with Paul to create a piece of art specific to each song on the album.  The results were amazing! 

The Mother-of-the-Groom commissioned this beautiful keepsake box for her son and his bride-to-be!
