The Many Faces of Eustace Tilley







These two steampunkish profilers are inspired largely by Rea Irvin's famous dandy character, The New Yorker's figurehead Eustace Tilley. Withal, the two of them are just add-ons of sorts to my Huck Finn "recalibration" and aren't motivated by some of the figures from Twain's original book.

  1. As much as you post your character designs and such....you should start thinking about "The world is flat" kind of stuff....do a search for this book/audio book.

    Also check out this good business article.... http://techdirt.com/articles/20070503/012939.shtml

    As much stuff as you post for free....how are you thinking about earning a living from it on your own as apposed to trying to find big corporate sponsering...you obviously have a ton of stuff to work on.
