I've been doing art professionally for a very long time. I've been spending way too much time using my talent to make others rich, so I've decided now that I'm 12 years wiser, it's time for me to put out my own project once again, and make myself rich!!! Keep your eyes out, because I'll have some announcements soon!

Current Residence: Denver, CO
Favourite genre of music: Metal
Favourite photographer: There are some great ones here. How do I pick?
Favourite style of art: Check my favorites for more info
Operating System: A different one on each computer...
MP3 player of choice: ipod - great for a 2 hour commute...
Shell of choice: What does that even mean?
Wallpaper of choice: Whatever inspires me at the time
Skin of choice: Chicken. Bad for me, but so tasty
Favourite cartoon character: Stewie Griffin


Supernatural Goth Girl Vampire Hunter
Here is another piece of artwork that I thought would be fun to put on merchandise. I need new clothes, so why not wear shirts with my artwork on them? Redbubble makes that possible (though if anyone out there knows a more affordable yet still good quality site out there please let me know!

This image can be found at my Redbubble site here:…
Oni Ninja Cultist Merchandise Artwork

Years ago I did an initial design similar to this for a movie, but the artwork never saw the light of day. I thought it could be a striking image for a shirt or phone case, so I polished it up a bit and added some fun new effects to it. The client failed to pay me for my designs, so I own the full copyright to this image.

This is possibly the first in a series of ninja/oni-themed artwork, so check back again soon!

Hope you like it.

My head exploding into nothing...
I wanted to play with a new Photoshop technique, and needed a photo I knew I had permission to use, so I took one of myself. Sorry about that.
Seeds for the Reaper Book Cover
This is the cover of my novel. It would be awesome if you decided to give it a try! Available both as a trade paperback and ebook version over at…

Thengati Concept Sketches

Hello everyone!

I’ve written my first novel, called “Seeds for the Reaper.” It’s a dark fantasy story that is the first in a series. Fans of Dungeons and Dragons and similar games will enjoy it, as well as LotR and GoT fans.

This image is from the free .pdf Art Companion book that anyone can get by signing up for my writing/art newsletter here:…

The link to the Amazon page is: or if that changes (depending on when you’re reading this) you can look it up by my name, Zak Hennessey, or the title.

I have a lot of places I am giving updates (although I hope to spend more time uploading new art here on DeviantArt). They are:

Facebook Art/Writing Page:

Instagram Page:

Personal website:
I need a new portfolio, with new artwork. So I've decided to cut my usual commission prices in half for a bit to give YOU the opportunity of getting something drawn my me at a lower than usual rate. 

My plan is to put way more time and effort into each work than the pay may justify, because I want good new pieces to add to my portfolio. So the time is now to get new and improved artwork my me while it lasts. As soon as I get to Los Angeles and start working again, I'll be closing the commissions. 

You can order a sketch, a polished pencil, ink, or full color commission, or a digitally painted piece. Lots of price ranges! You can also get multiple characters!

To learn more, you can go HERE:

I hope to get the chance to draw your character(s!)
  • Listening to: An annoying commercial
  • Reading: Constantly

hey do you do horror commissions for book covers? Your work is amazing by the way.
ally i really need is two characters, one is a female in a swat uniform pointing a gun with a laser sight at a cereal killer type guy wearing a gas-mask  (reference My bloody valentine killer but with the gas mask white. He'd have to be holding a gas canister in his hand and be looking straight at her even tho she is aiming a gun) he also has a long black torn cape thingy with a hood that partially covers the mask (reference scream). i am willing to pay
