one of the best live trace feature demonstrations i've seen (if that's indeed what you used), toobs. it achieves a unique effect and along with the carefully arranged compositions, these pieces are winners that should be displayed for all to see

i myself am still mastering gradient meshes, which a whole other universe, but so much fun and potential still lies ahead

great work!

That Season 2 one looks great.
I love BB...glad someone is making prints.

Unfortunately all your Reservoir Dogs prints arent up on your big cartel. Any chance of those going up again or getting a Tarantino one?

have you ever experimented w/ gradient meshes in illustrator?

i've done a few low-fi photo-realisitic paintings using a lot of gradient meshes, but i'm not as versed as some folks are, which create illustrations that look nearly as realistic as photos, but they're entirely vector and editable

I don't know how the Breaking Bad print has lasted so long, but I sure am glad it did...a nice little early X-mas present to myself! I can't wait to see what you do with the next one...

I've got wall space reserved for the season 2 print -- looking forward to seeing it in final form. :D

I'm excited for a S3 or S4 print. Those seasons were some of the best stuff on TV EVER.
When stressed about getting a drop, just remember: it will decay into the same organic matter as inevitably as your rotting corpse no matter how much museum glass you put in front of it.

I'll be wanting one of those if they're on the smaller side.
