No, I haven't died or disappeared, just submerged in school and things. +_+ The semester is over now and strangely enough, I'm starting to feel MORE ambitious now than when I was working on projects during the semester. Anyways, I'll be uploading a few projects now, and hopefully some other stuff that I have plans to do.


So here's something. This was a project from an illustrated book/graphic novelish series thing, a book cover for the book The Vesuvius Club. The book is set at the turn of the century (the last one. ^_^) so I did it in an art nouveau poster-ish kind of style. The rest of the project unfortunately is a wee bit of a gong show but we'll see, I may upload bits from it in the future.

The book by the way is very interesting and I quite recommend it. It's sort of a turn-of-the-century mystery-horror thing written with quite a wicked sense of humor, I thought. I hear that the BBC is considering making into a tv series of some sort.

But... That's not an opium pipe... Apart from that, love the style. The poppies are cool and I like how her dress and hair kinda just become the scene.

Gotta love the art-nouveau look of this! It has this sensual quality that is totally appealing.

And... for some reason it kind of makes me think of the smoking caterpillar from "Alice in Wonderland". Must be the opium pipe...

Sensual, appealing, and lively. This is a great picture/poster! And I'll have to check out that book as well. ;)

Awsome!

I loved that book and they should have this one as the cover instead of the one they have. :nod:

Beautiful, I wish this cover was on my copy, it suits the book so well :) I love the type and I like your choice of character too (assuming that's who I think it is...)

It reminds me so much of those absinthe posters people sell in Montmartre near the Sacré Coeur. Your artwork is absolutely gorgeous and it really does look like turn-of-the-century. Great job.

Thanks. And,

Oh! lol. perhaps I didn't fade out the watermark quite enough. My dad's side of the family is from Lithuania. Most people's first guess is Greek for some reason.

yeah! i was asking because my friend's last name is liaukevicius, and i thought yours sounded a bit lithuanian, though my second choice was greek. it's a great name~

Hey, that's neat. Hmmmmm.... I wonder. Hey, ask your friend this... does anyone in the family spell it differently? For some strange reason, everyone in my family seems to have their own spelling of it. My grandparents spell it differently from my dad, and my great uncles spell it differently, and even my uncle has a different spelling. I have no idea at all what the original spelling of the name is, or why everyone would keep changing it... are there characters in the alphabet that don't exist in english, or maybe everyone's just trying to make it more phonetic to pronounce? I don't know. Weird.

oh! how odd, he says that everyone spells it the same, except for mis-spellings and mis-pronounciations.
