Not every gig goes the way you might hope. That’s life. Recently, I was asked by PBR to take a stab at redesigning their 16 ounce can and I jumped at it. I figured this would be a marriage for the ages… Me… Dutch… and Beer! It was meant to be, right? Well, not in this case. Here’s a look at my design which did not get picked…

The Joker doesn’t find the death of Robin Williams very funny. “Mourning Mork”.

H.R. Giger tribute piece

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 21, 2014 by n8vandyke

I, as many artists, were very shocked and saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of H.R. Giger. Saying he had a huge influence on me and my work is an understatement. I knew that I had to do a piece to honor him and his work so I put pencil to paper and started scribbling. I drew this piece in elements and pieced it together in photoshop. The title of the piece is “Honor. Respect. Giger” and it is 18″x18″. It have gotten great reviews on my Facebook(/N8vandyke) and Instagram (@69N8vandyke) and I will likely be making a limited edition print run of it in the near future. Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

HELLBOY Turns 20

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2014 by n8vandyke


I was asked to be part of a big gallery show in LA which opens today, May 2nd at Hero Complex Gallery. The theme of the show is Hellboy, who recently turned 20 years old. I figured this would be a good time to get a little grisly and play with some paint. Below I’ve attached my original sketch, the final version and the flier. I will not be in attendance for the show, though I wish I were as it is sure to be quite the party with Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola on hand.

7″x7″ skull studies

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2014 by n8vandyke

I was asked to be in a gallery show a little while back and the theme of the show is “Less Is More” with the idea that all of the pieces had to be 12″x12″ or smaller. I thought it’d be a fun excuse to do small skull studies in a variety of mediums. The end result makes for a great collection. The opening is tonight (sorry for the late notice) at 111 Minna in San Francisco and I will be in attendance to support my one dozen dead buddies.
