Did a sketch on monday of a skull & gasmask combo....its looked cool so i spent a few more hours and here is the result:)

as for the whole tie thing....well the poor junk-bot just wants to fit in and look as smart as the rest of man kind:)

i really didnt want much colour in this at all so that the tie could stand out strongest.

also didnt work too much on the background, wanted more focus on the character.

ok enough ranting.....enjoy:P

Hey! I'm curious if you know that a band called Fightstar has used your picture for one of their album covers?

You can see it here:…

Hope they ain't using it without your knowledge.

Hi there,

Love your work! Your use of color is brilliant!

Please tell me you would be interested in working on a comic series?

I'm writing and producing a comic series with the artist Judit Tondora called, "Volition" and we are looking for a colorist.

"Volition" begins with the assassination of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, closely followed by the total destruction of England in a Biblical Attack by the Wrath of God.

If you like, I am more than happy to send you a digital copy of the comic proposal to see if its a project you would be interested in.

Many thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards,
George Terran

Great art :) although some people THINK this was stolen from the FIGHTSTAR album that was released Sep 24, 2007, yet this art was submitted September 11, 2003 so apparently FightStar is using this as their album cover
