The weatherman said heavy snowfalls are in the forecast for Saturday night. BTW, I already posted this piece earlier this year. This is just an updated (a little) version. Anyways, I had a great summer an' a nice autumn, so I'm looking forward to a bright white winter!


Rough and semi-rough.

Here we are, the finished design for the PIXEL CONFERENCE (OCTOBER 5-7 2012, VIENNA) art-battle promo poster. I like the uber-sophomoric thouch to it... but be that as it may, if you are in the Vienna area and love animation, grab a ticket and see these two crackers: BRUNO BOZZETTO and OSCAR GRILLO! I'll be around, too.
