Ah sweet, I like the book cover! I might find the back a bit messy with the typography, esp. the spacing in the quotation. But otherwise I'm liking it! I love making book covers for fun!
And also, I like that last WW2 piece. You adopted it nicely. Bravo!
f1x - Haha thanks, my BTTF illo seems to be fairly popular!
Gthm - Cheers
Vloth - Thanks for the crit on the book - typography isn't a particular strong point! Definitely something I'd like to get a better grasp of though, designing book covers is great fun.
The past few weeks, I've mostly been listening to Die Antwoord:
NickyBeats - Cheers for stopping by again mate!
shockowaffel - Yeah it was massive - performed some photoshop surgery and scaled it down now. In all honesty it's riddled with mistakes!
Stuff between freelance work, playing with limited palettes for my morning warmups lately:
ha!! i always get the biggest smile across my face whenever i look in here. you have a truly magical imagination. something reminiscient of thinking back on a good memory, like reading dr. suess as a child right before bed, or something similar.
Vritra - Pff, you're too kind man! You should see the junk that doesn't get posted, and is thrown directly into the bin instead.
NickyBeats - I was obsessed with Dr. Seuss and Richard Scarry when I was a kid, guess it made a massive impact on the way I think, haha.
bhanu - Cheers!
nim - Haha, thanks!
I'd love to see the junk that doesn't get posted, man. I'd like to think that that's what a sketchbook is all about. And seeing as you shit gold, your junk must be...
On a more serious note, sorry for the constant monotonous asspat. But I have no crits that I could possibly have to offer you. Just keep updating.
You've been busy ey. Nice updates dude
I totally agree with vitra, on post #CLICK I reeeeally like how your
stuff looks, I don't really like the regular Digitalpainting stuff it looks
amazing but some how I miss some kinda life in it. I just don't feel it !
I really like your illus, I saw the bug, loove bugs, and the politician, I totally like
caricatures. I just bought a very old book from NORMAN ROCKWELL, I am
sure you already know him right ?!
ps.: Love the thin legs on your caricatures !

GEB - Thanks
Iven - Thanks. I think it's really important to keep an element of traditional media when working digitally, it reminds us it's a handcrafted images rather than merely an abstract idea floating around in a computer somewhere.
Big Rockwell fan, I think most all the members here would cite him as an influence.
shockowaffel - That's was the aim, less is more and all that
Here's a couple of pieces I did for the Italian magazine 'Nurant' a little while back which I can now show. The theme is silent film, obviously.
Obstfelder - Thanks man, I'll keep doing it and posting it!
ruuhkis - Thanks
Duplicitious - hah, your post made me smile
Vritra - Cheers mate, it was printed out massive for a gallery show in Milan - something like A2, so I had to put extra love into it.
Sketches from a trip to Taiwan a couple of weeks ago. Larger and more legible version on my blog! :
