28th Century Druid

This piece is a bit of a tribute to all those early French Sci-Fi pioneers.. Moebius, Mezieres etc. I had a lot of fun doing it, its a bit of an escape from my usual style. It started with a line drawing I did at about 3 or 4 am one night, scanned it and started to color it a few days later.. Still have to finish it and put in some sort of background though. Hmmmm...

Very cool! It does remind me of those old copies of Heavy Metal, but very fresh. It has an amazing gestural quality.

hey jesse,

it was nice meeting you in class. nice work man, i don't think you need to drop 100K for art center when you've got some good skillz already! It's just about painting and drawing! Keep up the good work.
