Guy, you amaze me. Love that rocket, and the flaming shell design is sweet.

Lou said...

For a 30 minute job, this is great! Actually, it would be great even it took you days. Anyway, love the little details such as the flames and bumper sticker. Great job!

Hey Guy,

Always looking forward to see what you come up with next. Great story telling and fun designs always. What did you use for coloring the Jet Snail?

Call me lame... but I like the fact that I can comment on an incredibly talented illustrator's blog and he'll probably read it. I (on the other hand) illustrated an incredibly un-impressive few pictures today to help teach my primary kids some songs. They would have appreciated your talent! Anyway... your pics always make me smile. Thanks!
