@ alex — Thanks man! Oh, I’ve just watched your music videos on YouTube. I had no idea that you played. Your cover versions are really really good. Sometimes I’m just blown away by the talent on this site…

@ Morten — I’m glad you like it. Actually my good friend Anders did all the layout of the type, so he really deserves credit for that.

@ drew — Thanks. Most of the illustration was actually created using Corel Painter. During this project I really learned Painter, and I can recommend it if you want to work with digital colors in a different way. The way colors blend in Painter is noticeably different from what you see in Photoshop.

Brilliant! It’s like German Expressionism mixed with a bit of a Fantastic Planet vibe. Is this going to be for sale?

I just sold my first design, and go figure no computers were involved

sweet that the coloring and shading was done in Corel Painter…I have that program and I have always been so “ify” about it…it’s cool but it is kind of slow program and has a few bugs every once in a while, I dunno maybe I just have a bad copy…

awesome process and poster!
