I've got his Six Barrel Shotgun print framed - still wish that the gig it was originally designed for (BRMC) hadn't been cancelled. Would have framed that instead. I still find myself more drawn to the '02/03 era stuff, but I really do love that his style continues to evolve and grow. Some artists really stagnate in my eyes but just look thru Guy's catalog from the early B&W stuff to current day - just amazing...

Glorious. I love the way his drawings and inks seem to multiply one another's effect exponentially.

Guy does rule.

My one and only complaint is that we don't get enough work from him!

His stuff is a pleasure to frame. He achieves such balance with a seemingly chaotic palette of colors and textures. So many directions you can run with designs. I loved this recent piece we completed for a client.

I like how you have to concentrate and look a few times to maybe figure out what's going on in his pieces.This is my favourite of his.
