Thanks for the kind words!
The Beat magazine descibed their music like this
"Think Baz Luhrmann meets Tim Burton, think the Cat Empire with manic depression."
So you were right on the money there enRaged !
I tried to get that feeling!
And thanks Leo! Nice to meet you to.

And thanks for making me feel welcomed!

Oooo.. stunning stuff! The style is really excellent. Reminds me of Arthur Rackham works. Sinister and stylish.

Being compared with Arthur Rackham is too much.

This is outrageously good. The drawing is exquisite -- kind of like looking at the fun of the twisted theme and then suddenly realize it's really really well drawn! And colored! And designed! Dang!

I think because it is so well done, I prefer it over the beer label poster. Personal preference. I think the looseness of the drawing in the other one along with the crumply look to the paper, though clearly deliberate, makes it look a lot less cared about. There's a marked difference in quality between the two though they share much in technique.

This Santa one is professional and polished. The other one looks more like a really good comp to show to a client who has trouble visualizing your excellent design ideas. But there's not evenness in the execution between them IMHO.

Thanks D Akey!

Really kind words !
I kind of a sloopy guy when i draw, and i made the beerlabelone in one 2 day so itīs extra sloopy.

Really thank you for all the kind things that everybody says about the stuff, make me keep on drawing!

See you around !

I think you should travel and go to the circus tent and take off you skin and dance around in your bones;)
