HERE IS BRANDON’s COMMENT:
After just bringing twins into the world with my wife, and upping the kid count in the house to 3 kids under the age of 1.5 years old, I had to take a 3rd shift job to make life work and pay the bills.
My wife stays home with 3 screaming, pants shitting, babies while I try not to fall asleep at a job that goes on while most people are sleeping
She misses me and a funny little caricature to look at will cheer her up while she toils away feeding these little monsters…alone….while im working
… + I got a pretty big penis for a white guy, so I should win something for that right? I promise ,in advance, that the caricature won will in no way highlight my penis in any way shape or form.
NOW a CARICATURE OF HIS SON!
Was going through some of my old works, and decided to air out some of my flyer designs. I try to approach flyers from an illustrator perspective, as the market seems to be flooded with the same old ‘glitter’ Photoshop manipulations., and at some point decide to only do flyers in my own style. For so long was just a designer monkey just replicating other people styles, which is tedious, boring, and doesn’t pay much . The downside of illustrating a FLYER is that that allot of time, but the upside of illustration in your own ‘style’ is you’re doing you, and you are not so easily replaceable and help establish your very own brand.
I don’t mind doing flyers for people and companies when they hire me for me. But I I’ve have gotten tired of being a technical artist of just replicating templates. It’s draining, but surprisingly allot of people want that. But If you’re interested in having some illustrated FLYERS DESIGNED with a different unique perspective from me then hit me up for more details. Joshua@Pixel-Pimp.com or CALL ME: 678.600.1141

Ok! It’s not the BEST, but pretty close! Designing for yourself is somewhat a tedious task for artist. For the longest I’ve been meaning to design a new business card for myself… and just never got around to it. This concept was for another person that wasn’t somewhat rejected, so I decided to use it for myself, and make it HOT!! I’m going to print Monday, after some tweaking! I want it to be BOLD and EPIC, and this is what I came up with .I always like the concept of bad asses in the movies slowly walking away from explosions and tried to convey this! What do you think. I also take commissions for business cards. Email me at Joshua @pixel-pimp.com for more information!! Thanks – Joshua
This is a personal commission, a cariacture of a girl who loves the Jägermeister. My instructions were ‘draw me with some Jägermeister!” And that’s basically how I approached this. I think it came out AWESOME, but It wasn’t easy.
This is the first draft, that was a #FAIL! It was kinda corn-ballish, and wasn’t feeling. so I started over…and stop looking a photo reference. Sometimes references can do you some dis-services. Live and Learn. I’m accepting commissions, email me for details at Joshua@pixel-pimp.com
Iron Mike Tyson, his name is infamous, he legacy is questionable, but the fear that he strikes in the heart of men is undeniable. It’s a fair statement to say Mike Tyson is an animal, he literally bite a man’s ear off. ( who does that?) I wanted to draw Tyson for some time, now I have. Job’s done. Mission Accomplished… on to the next piece.
“Fear is your best friend or your worst enemy. It’s like fire. If you can control it, it can cook for you; it can heat your house. If you can’t control it, it will burn everything around you and destroy you. If you can control your fear, it makes you more alert, like a deer coming across the lawn.” -Mike Tyson
This is a shirt design for my friend, Wells Montague. He is quite the sexual deviant and an advate runner. We wanted a shirt to represent two of his favorite things in life, running and being a pervert. Personally, I think those two hobbies together are reciept for a disaster, but he paying me $$$, so I best shut up and do what he tells me (make him a sandwich too). He’s also a smooth talker, hence the mouth piece. That’s about it. Oh, Feel free to FOLLOW ME ON TWITER, if you haven’t already, and LIKE my my Facebook Fan Page. You can also pay it forward by buying me a beer when you see my in the streets. Thanks. – Joshua Hooper
