I am really on board with this use of a progressive pattern silhouette (just made up, but it makes sense to me). I’m not too crazy about the positioning of the “cK.” I probably would’ve tried placing it on the lower/upper left; in that spot, it manages to communicate the information while staying out of focal point.
Recently discovered Vampirella. Always thought it was a “smutty” comic, and discovered that anyone who is anyone in comic book illustration/writing has probably worked on it at some point in the past.
This illustration style is EXACTLY what I used to aspire to in my more artistic days. I should probably check back into figure drawing. My only issue with this is that I can tell it utilized live models across the board. There isn’t really much effort put into developing the character’s look beyond a few pieces of costume jewelry and a sword.
I am in love with the overall B-movie witch genre look of the page, though. So yeah, check out Vampirella. Shit is crazy cool.
The Knife - Great music. Great photo.
Taka Mayumi is now FIRMLY on my radar. Jesus. There is nothing about this that I don’t love.

This amazing song is finally getting the recognition that it deserves - a Grammy nomination. Maybe I’ll watch them this year.
And, uh, the doctor says, “Well, why don’t you turn him in?” The guy says, “I would, but I need the eggs.” Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships; y’know, they’re totally irrational, and crazy, and absurd, and… but, uh, I guess we keep goin’ through it because, uh, most of us… need the eggs.
I’m already looking forward to True Grit and Chinese take-out for Christmas this year.
This is right up my alley. Love visualizing the breakdown of digital information. It might be trite, nowadays, but I like what I like.
