This has a nice style. I like the limited palette and the spindly figures.

The sparse, almost scribbly style brings to mind some really fun children's book illustrations from the 70s. I'm thinking primarily of The Phantom Tollbooth...

Your line feels like a Gaudi building very beautiful :D

I agree that this does look somewhat like some of the 70s children's book illustrations..... Brings back pleasant memories! Beautiful work!

Very cute. I love the legs especially on the people in the first one, really beautiful.

Thanks everyone! This comic is a little tentative, but I've been putting it together when I have free time off work. It's called "In the Age of Nostalgia". I update it every wednesday or thursday.

I really like these. Reminds me of the drawings for Winnie the Pooh and for the Little Prince book.

Thanks a bunch for the encouragement! :D

I've added these title page things to the top of each of the comics I start. I may swap out the story entirely so if you like what you see feel free to save the images to your computer I might take them down at some point.

Man, amazing work. You make me want to bust out my watercolors again.

In some ways I thhhhhink I see a little Yoshitaka Amano influence, yet at the same time it's something so unique and different. What I really love though is the way you draw architecture/buildings. Is there any particular source that you drew inspiration from in particular for those? I really love it.

I was gonna mention Yoshitaka Amano too. Particularly his Final Fantasy concept work. Very cool.

I draw inspiration from lots of things, mostly aquatic life and architecture from India, Turkey, and Spain. Anywhere cultures merge.

I put up some new work. Some designs, scenarios I'm testing out for a project I have doing for a magazine.

Hello again everyone,

This is a drawing that I plan to do for a non-project organization. I'm not using this one, this one's more like a "starter" to the finished piece I plan to send in.
