    Thanks for presenting an informative article…

  21. Hydro74 is crazy good… I love that photoshop one on here. I think might have watched a photoshop speed-drawing of a skull underwater, and I feel like it must have been him. Awesome either way

  22. Great feature and nicely timed for Halloween! Our design agency is always on the look out for freelance illustrators of a high caliber such as this.

    This is great inspiration for a band I’m doing some print material for, they’ve got an 80s metal theme. I love creatively inspirational articles like this, I also found one using post-its thats pretty cool as well:
