I am a professional artist with over a decade of experience in a wide variety of media. I am an expert illustrator and started my career doing illustrations for music festivals and zines. My fast sketch and hand drawn style lends well to an original and fashion forward aesthetic. I am also versatile in styles and pride myself in traversing a variety of cultural looks and graphic states. I make every project my own and pride myself in efficiently achieving eye catching and iconic designs. I also am involved with live painting performance at music events. Some of the venues I have performed at are The Roxy with the Third Eye Gathering, Serenity Gathering, The Hive Gallery, The Vex, Los Angeles Metal Fest, The Belasco in Los Angeles, LA JOYA with the Conscious life Expo just to name a few.

“Prog rock had Roger Dean, ’80s death metal had Dan Seagrave, and now, the new wave of American heavy metal has Tom Denney, who creates some of the most intense and intricate album covers since the psychedelic ’70s. Full of writhing monsters, skulls, tentacles, and voluptuous women, Denney’s work harkens back to rock and roll iconography of old, but the California-based artist manages to create work that perfectly encapsulates the dirty crunch and smoke-blurred atmosphere of bands such as Lair of the Minotaur, Kylesa, Sourvein, Soilent Green, and other such bands.”-Lostateminor.com

I am working with allot of energies through my artwork. I am using symbols, shapes and colors which resonate with certain states of being. The Universal Creativity motivates me to speak a language that can only be heard by the subconscious when viewed through an open heart. These resonate images are describing higher dimensional aspects of the universe and are imbued with the key to inner knowings ancient and dormant within all selves. It is my intent to bring in these messages and energies of higher states of being for the upliftment of the viewer and the benefit of this reality. Each time we see the artwork of the higher realms it brings us closer to them and our relation ship with that motivational creativity, the voice of the universe.
