Slide Show Highlights

Coheed and Cambria

My favorite project to date! Minarik Guitars asked me to come up with a design for Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria. Claudio wanted a scene depicting a mid air battle between devils and angels, with the devils having the edge! The peg head needed to have both the Coheed logo and the Minarik logo, so in keeping with the battle scene the Coheed logo is wrestling the Minarik logo! Check out more photos on the slide show!

The Medusa

What could be more appropriate for Minarik's Medusa model than the story of Medusa? The pregnant Medusa was beheaded by Perseus, who was sent to fetch her head. Perseus was provided with winged sandals, a sword and a mirror shield by Athena and Hermes. He slew her by looking at her reflection in the mirror instead of directly at her, to prevent being turned into stone. The peg head  represents the birth of Pegasus and his brother Chrysaor who sprang from the blood of her severed head. Fun fact: The face of Medusa is Nicole Minarik! More pics on the slide show!

The Egyptian Diablo

Another project for Minarik guitars! The Egyptian Diablo series, I designed and hand carved the pick guards for an Egyptian themed series representing various animals which have been cursed! To go with the cursed idea I had each animal biting and stretching the Minark logo. I also designed and hand cut the peg head and side body inlays. More pics on the slide show!
