gr8 and different as always... i love the simplicity of ur work with gr8 understanding behind... u have really gr8 observation... i had a question, do u get some mood inspiration from some snap or its totally imaginary... because they all r so drastically different yet very believable...

i usually start with just blocking shapes and colors in photoshop. i rarely use referece to start the piece. i sometimes use references to finish the piece. i get my inspiration from looking at other people's(dead or live) works. there are so many of talented artists out there. it is hard to keep track of.

thanks for visiting:-)
