I really like the lack of lines. The soft colors are really cool, too... What's the book going to be about?

Its about a boy and his dreams basically. He lives in a cramped apartment building, and he walks through his neighbors dreams at night...

I am absolutely in love with his hair. And the no-lines design really kicks the theme of the book - definately a good design.

The style is amazing. Is it Vector art that you take in any pretty up some more in photoshop? Or is there more to it?

Hey guys,

Thanks!!! This was done in photoshop. Just shapes and shading pretty much. It was a quickie I did on my down-time at work. Glad you liked it. I'm still trying to figure out where I'm going style-wise with this story. I'm trying to push it a bit.
