Japanese Noodle Vending Machine Wallpaper

I’m a real sucker for Japanese vending machines. In general, I love the multitude of designs, colors and contents available. More than the modern machines though, I love the vintage designs that can still be found here and there, scattered around Japan. I’ve spent hours watching the videos on http://jihanki.michikusa.jp/. Uotani Yusuke’s website introduced me to the wondrous world of of the Fuji Electric noodle...

Pinup – Jilluminati’s Lair

Jilluminati is my modern tribute to the classic ‘horror host’. A horror host pinup is something I’ve been wanting to create for a while. I’m working on a comic book concept with her, as a late night tv host. Behind her, painted on the walls are two generations of sexy horror hosts, Vampira and Elvira. I hope to post more of the concept art for my comic...

Pinup – Rusty Nail Saloon

Another new pinup, in preparation for Pinupalooza. This one features some original neon, also created by me. I love neon, and I’ve been looking for the opportunity to include it in a pinup. I’m exhausted. I’ve never done a show before and I’m stressing trying to get everything done. I am really looking forward to it though. I hope it’s the first of many conventions that I’ll get to take part...

Pinup – I Think I’ll Stay Up Here, Thanks

Here’s a new pinup illustration. It’s bright, compared to my usual fare. I like the slightly more painted feel that it has. It’s also reminiscent of an illustrated travel poster from the 1920s or 1930s. Most of my pinups are genre specific. One for tiki, one for a video game, one for a pinball game, and so on. It’s nice to focus on a more generic subject once in a while. Just a beautiful woman getting sun on...

Pan Am Pinup by Jason Snyder

Here’s a new print that I finished up in preparation for Pinupalooza. Actually, truth be told, it’s an old print that I never finished because I wasn’t sure where to go with it. I finally figured it out and got it finished. It’s a little different style than my usual. A little more cartoony, perhaps. I like the overall look though. Click to make larger. Anyone who knows me, knows of my obsession with the...

Illustration – “Would You Like a Jelly Baby?”

                      “Would You Like A Jelly Baby?” – Original art by Jason Snyder. An illustration I finished recently. I’ve been obsessed with retro candy packaging recently. This is the Jelly Babies packaging used during parts of the 1970s and 1980s. Also, I couldn’t help throwing references to the Tardis. My wife suggested that I indicate the...

Launch-Burger – Googie Sign Illustration

I occasionally root through all the sketches I’ve amassed throughout the years to see if there’s anything that gives me inspiration. Once and a while, I’ll find something in that sketch bin that just begs to be finished. Yesterday, I pulled out a two minute sketch of a little astronaut, holding a tray with a burger and fries, looking for all the world like he was traveling by jet-pack in the same way that carhops of...

Comic Book Concept Art

This is a follow-up to my post months ago featuring some art from my Tiki / sci-fi comic book. This time around it’s a character study of my protagonist, a hard boiled private investigator, caught up in a series of paranormal incidents. I’m still developing the story, and it’ll be a while coming before I start further panel work. I love the idea though. It’s a mash-up of California tiki culture in the 1950s,...
