The Last Shadow Puppets

If you like big 60's orchestral soundtracks combined with 00's British indie music check out this group's album "The Age of the Understatement". If there is anyone who should be doing a James Bond song, it's these guys.

Transformers was awesome. It was the pure Summer blockbuster I have been waiting to see for ages. There was no pretention. The film makers just put all their energy into making sure that the people who went to see it had a really fun time. It gave me the same kind of feeling I got from seeing Kung F...

Yeah, Arcade Fire rock! I saw them in LA a few weeks ago and they were awesome. They put so much energy into their performance. I like "Funeral", but I think that I prefer "Neon Bible" just because of the darker, gothic edge it has. They're both terrific albums though.

Volver was such a good film. Definitely one of my favs from last year. I went in not knowing what to expect, and I found it a very engaging and touching film.

The Host is excellent! It really is one of the best action/adventure films I've seen in ages and reminded me of classic Steven Spielberg films. I love that sequence where the daughter is running along the river with the music playing.

I'm all about the Captain Falcon action (even if I do usually end up losing). Nothing like a good strong Falcon Punch.

I love the sinister and macabre nature of this story. Your use of simplicty against detail works well to convey this. At the moment I feel like the text boxes take away from this and what might be better is to leave a bit of space between them and the panel border, and to do something with their bor...

That's a really cool design. My main quibble would be that it feels awkward where the line is lost around the fish's mouth and perhaps instead the line could continue but be thinner.

Justice is Our Cradle!

Here's a CD cover that I came up with for the heaviest metal group out of Puerto Rico, Unzane. It was fun to do something so Over The Top, with extreme lighting, extreme explosions and extreme just about everything else.

Yeah, the heart-carving up one is brilliant. Great idea and well executed. I like the fact that it feels a bit realistic, but also cartoon-like at the same time.

Even without understanding the words, I still have a pretty good idea of what is going on. I love the use of texture and your linework.

This is great. It's fun to look for all the little details. I could totally see this as an old school platform video game or board game.
