Gifts from the Idea Demons

My name is John Galo. I'm a freelance illustrator based in Pittsburgh, PA. As you can see I like to draw awesome shit... a lot.  All original content copyright, (2014). All rights reserved. So don't steal my ideas without at least giving me credit.

Devil Bear
Finished laying down the basic sketch of my new logo for business cards and what not. Still need to tighten up some linework but I like what I have produced so far. Heck, this is looking so cool, I might get it tattooed somewhere on me when I’m finished.

Cannot be stressed enough.

Mom’s Sword - Maternal Sunday Stabber
Mom was the best. She would bake you cookies, kiss your boo boos, and made you this sweet sword made with all her love for you. But you haven’t seen her since she went down into the Dungeon of Mysteries. So this Mother’s Day you’re gonna go down there and slay the Labyrinth Wyrm that swallowed her. She’s probably still alive and living in it’s stomach, so be ready to get an earful on why you didn’t come save her sooner.
Captain Mako’s Cutlass - Saturday Swashbuckler
Captain Mako was the most feared pirate to sail upon the Snow Sea. His ship “The Scarwhal” and her legendary crew of cut throats were known to be the most bad-ass of bad-ass pirates. That is until you met up with them at the Frostbite Cape and turned the lot of them into Ice Shark bait.
Wizard Killer - Sorcerer Slaying Friday Chopper
You’ve been waiting all week for this showdown; ever since that Hipster Wizard called swords lame at that party you were at. Nobody calls swords lame. So you stole a sliver of dark matter and hammered it into the most deadly anti-magic blade ever conceived. Gilded in chimaera blood and fitted with the most righteous gems, this sweet piece will make short work of that magic dork.P.S. Sorry for the late post, got stuck at work.
Fist Sword - Thursday Punching Blade
Oh man, is it Thursday already? I guess I better put on some pants then and get the ole Fist Sword ready. These atomic powered yeti aren’t going to slay themselves.
Moon Sword - Moon Knight Khopesh of Wednesday
It’s Wednesday. You’ve made it halfway through the week. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel. And that light is the Moon. And on it’s surface is an army of angry Moon Knights just rearing to lay the smack down on you. It’s cool though, you’re just gonna disarm one of these fools and use his own weapon to slay the bejeezus out of all ‘em. Nice.
Bug Sword - Arthropodic Tuesday BladeWell I see you survived Monday but Tuesday is here and it’s just as big of a pain in the ass as Monday was so take this. The Bug Sword is made from the corpse of a scimitar beetle. All you have to do is find a mature specimen replace all it’s blood with molten steel and voila, you have yourself a handy blade for taking out those punctual ninjas who attack you every week.
A Week of Bad-Ass Swords
It has come to my attention recently that I don’t draw enough bad-ass swords. You can thank Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and this chart for the realization:

So to fix the problem I’m going to draw a bad-ass sword and post it here everyday this week starting today… with this.Grim Fang - Two-Handed Monday SwordMonday is not a day to be fucking around on so take this no nonsense gut cutter and slash Monday’s throat open.

Grim Fang - Two-Handed Monday Sword
Monday is not a day to be fucking around on so take this no nonsense gut cutter and slash Monday’s throat open.

Busted out the ole micron pens to knock some rust off my inking skills. Not too shabby.
Tyra the Brave
A redesign of a game character I came up with back in college. Tyra is the only girl in a family of viking raiders. When the skies to west explode with fire, her father and seven brothers decide to investigate because you never know it might be Ragnarok or something. When they don’t return, it’s up to Tyra to pull their asses out of the fire. She’s armed with Mjollnir and a well honed love of violence.
No fancy title or name, just a bear with a beard drinking a beer.
Nighty Knight - T-Shirt Illustration
Another t-shirt illustration I submitted to threadless. Although it got good responses, it didn’t get picked up. I was actually surprise it didn’t, I mean, I based my design on a pun and everything.
