Okay, I figured it's been long enough and time to make this announcement official!
Been working hand-in-hand with OAKLEYİ [link]
to create some really cool artwork for the 2010-2011 fall/winter campaign. A new website will be released shortly called LEGIONofOAKLEY.com which will walk you through the whole experience...
This is a first of a series of pieces which was also used as insert posters in this season's FreeSkier Buyer's Guide, as well as giant bus ads, store banners, books and pamphlets for the ad campaign, you name it! Here's a picture from a retail store on my twitter page: [link]
The man you see here is 7 time X-Games champion, TANNER HALL [link]
Oakley wanted Tanner looking fierce and somewhat inspired by Sabretooth. The most difficult part was getting the gear as accurate as possible to the product. I knew we had to get this part right because in the end - that's what we were selling. Making him look badass while keeping a likeness to Tanner, that was the easy part!
This piece was colored by the uber talented Fabian Monk Schlaga! Our first official collaboration together, and hopefully not the last!
