Don't worry about my budget. I'm also a production artist in a design firm; I have lots of contacts for printing that don't require me to spend much money. I'm no stranger to this process, I assure you!

Funny you should mention that; I'm reviewing printer proofs for my promotional cards right now!

Yeah, that's kind of the point!

Here's the second image I mentioned, "Dog Purse."

"What's Going On?" Series

Hi all! I'm returning to this forum after a long hiatus; thankfully, this place is as inspiring and interesting as ever. Man, you folks do some great work here. I've got a series of self-promo images that will soon be going out as emails, cards, etc. Called "What's Going On?", the series is my take ...

I completely forgot to post about this! I saw Paprika here in Toronto with my wife. It was one of the best films I've seen in a long, long time. I bought the soundtrack the next day; it is screwed up and all the better for it. (The composer is just a total cheeseball nutjob; perfect for this film.) ...

I'm all over this. Bay is a hack, but as long as there is a satisfying ratio of giant robots fighting to—I don't know, the inevitable "Go America" subtext—I will be happy. Just please please re-CG that scene where Optimus Prime has a mouth! the newest trailer on Yahoo has got me really excited; thos...

Excellent post; contrary to what you wrote, some of us—well, I can only speak for myself—are in fact literate! I think this all falls under the category of "common sense nobody listens to." It all makes perfect sense, but how often have any of us followed this before? I definitely think everyone sho...

Cool! For those of us (me) that don't know a whole lot about inking, how did you get the zippotones? Bought the screens in Tokyo and then started messing with them here at home (i.e. sticking them down, cutting out what I don't want, and then sealing the remainder with a burnisher). I'm still getti...

Yeah, very nice. I think a simpler, less "edgy" typeface would work better, and allow the illustration to say a little more on its own, though. It's a great piece.

Good luck with the competition!

That is just too cool. What did you use for colour? I really like the line work; nice 'n' clean.
