How it all Went Down

December19

So over the last while you would have seen me mention the Toitoy X Puma custom show and I must say the event didnt disapoint. The turn out was great and the atmosphere even better, had fun meeting some of the other artists and was awesome to get lots of great feed back on my pieces. Check out my completed set below and you can see the rest after the hop.

Drive

December6

After the rave response to “Drive” I must say I was left a little disappointed in the movie which just seemed to try to hard at times. This super short fan tribute from Tom&Bruno however hits all the right notes and actually makes me feel better about my experience with the movie.

Pure Style

December1

Trawling the net as usual I stumbled across some work from Phil Noto, the first thing to strike a chord with me was the old school style. Phil started out as an artist at Disney where he worked on feature films such as the Lion King, Pochahontas and Tarzan, more recently he has gained a following for his comic book art. However it is his old school 70’s style femme characters that appealed to me. Hope you guys dig it too.
