I had the pleasure of meeting fellow exhibitor James Clark at SDCC 2014. He hired me to work up an illustration and design for a banner that showcased his various talents.

Hero Complex Gallery presents the show “I Am The Law/A Life of Crime” opening Friday, August 15th. The show pays tribute to both cops and criminals across a wide spectrum of films and pop culture.

The sequence was highlighted by Steve McQueen’s ultra cool demeanor as he confidently glided his Mustang GT over the paved hills and valleys in pursuit of the hitmen in their Dodge Charger.
