So, I’ve redesigned my page and am going to be hosting it myself from now on. Come visit me there at daveberns.com if you want to see my latest works (& I know you do).
I’ve begun creating a comic strip series of observation, advice and inspiration in celebration and contemplation of the little bun in my wife’s oven. I’m planning to have a few dozen of them by the time my Bean is born. Give a look, leave a note of your own to the little guy if you’d like, share it with any parents-to-be you might know of.
BP also stands for Blood Pressure… coincidence? I think not!
When this image parodying the classic Public Enemy cover came to me, I had to create it.
Starting up a new project to strut my pin-up style works.
in appreciation of the female form…
(page is just parked for now, bookmark for future reference)
I could not have been more stoked to get to draw this illustration for my buddy Åsa’s band… What’s not to love here? Barely dressed over-the-top viking babes coming ashore to plunder and tear asunder!
Illustrated in pen & ink, digitally painted gray-tones and splatter effects in Adobe Photoshop, logo designed in Adobe Illustrator.
Finished the mermaid piece…
I think she looks damn hot and am starting on a few more of her girlfriends to make a set of them.
10″x20″ giclee prints for sale soon.
I recently received a request from someone who’d found my previous termite illo, via a google search that landed her here, to license the image for their own needs.
Unfortunately it was created under a work-for-hire agreement, and I couldn’t just make a few bucks off of my previous efforts. Bummer. Back to the well I go… to revisit the concept with a new illustration, as I’m retaining ownership and just allowing limited usage for the new client, this time it’s mine, all mine!
So, if by chance, you’ve found this entry by a google search yourself, and want to use this piece for your business needs, too, give me a shout, maybe we can come to some sort of an agreement.
Thanks for visiting!
It’s an established fact that Conan O’Brien is a preferable talk show host to Jay Leno (one that apparently NBC execs are unaware of). After seeing literally hundreds of my fb friends sign up for the “I’m with COCO” club, it occurred to me that virtually ANY Coco would make a more compelling host than the whiny talking chin.
So, given that I have this moderately funny parody idea and nowhere to put it… I’m experimenting with a self-distribution model that also uses the whole grass-roots social media campaign. If it gives you a chuckle, link up to it, and pass it along to your friends. Maybe enough of them will order a print to make this experiment a success.
PS: I hardly watch TV, but FYI, Jimmy Kimmel trumps Conan, Leno, Letterman, Fallon & Ferguson. That said even Kimmell is no Byron Allen!
Yes, I am a complete goon.
This is a pair of little watercolored line drawings I did for “Anything & Everything”.
Offering up some random stuff for sale from the archives… a few WWN spot illustrations, some life drawings, sketches and the ink art to the Marilyn Zombie piece… Provided some of these move, I’ll be adding a lot more to this shop in the coming weeks & months. Favorite me there!
These are not finished pieces, nor are they for clients, but they are pretty freakin’ cool, if I do say so myself.
