Patrick Melrose JFK after by Mozchops
Before compositing

See the finished shot here...
JFK matte painting by Mozchops

Recently I did a number of matte paintings for the sky mini-series Patrick Melrose (starring Benedict Cumberbatch), and this one was the most fun, the departure lounge at JFK circa 1982. A lot of research was necessary to get the right look for the taxi /runway area and the look of the planes, 747's were all the rage in those days, no airbuses then of course, :) . The skyline for distant NY city was different in those days. JFK was also unusual for having a very futuristic spinning-top style terminal called the Worldport, that looks like it was designed by Syd Mead, it has since been demolished as part of the expansion of the airport.

was ages since i last logged in, and pleasantly surprised to find my scrawny shampoo-avoiding rat had scored a DD in my absence, clever rat   :P
thanks for the kind messages everyone, very appreciated!

The very final part (6) of Salsa Invertebraxa was delivered to Heavy Metals' NY offices the other week, the culmination of its run as a serialization. What an amazing time it's been for me, it is not every day you're asked to be a part of a legendary publication, and especially under the scrutinizing eye of DC mega-scribe Grant Morrison.
It's been a challenge to re-configure Salsa's ultra-landscape pages into A4 portrait format without losing the flow and the effect, and with no compromise to quality, - and of course it was a good opportunity to tweak the text where I felt it needed some help (quite a bit to be honest, kxx)

Here's a few of the double page spreads submitted over the last year, ...

You are so goddamn amazing dude :O I will have to get your Salsa Invertebraxa as well as the Prophets of the Ghost Ants now!
Do you happen to have videos or livestreams showing your process?

Thank you, very kind compliments. I believe the Ghost Ants book will be discontinued soon, as a major publisher has picked it up and will be re-packaging it, so best to grab that first. There's a trio of process videos , more time-lapse than explanatory. Cheers :)

It's an amazing movie, I think it should be re-released. The eighties were maybe a bit too early for its moment in the spotlight.

If you liked the movie, you will looooove the manga, wich is even more deeper. Graphics are amazing and story lines much more expanded!
Indeed it's the only manga I never read and I found it awesome!

Now THATS how you do an illustrated ebook. Fantastic work, I hope it gets the praise it deserves. It's an inspiration.

Thanks. Maybe I have the market cornered at the moment, but there are some supreme artists out there, just a question of time before there's a whole slew of amazing insect art (for some reason the sculpture/ jewellery scene already boasts a lot of invertebrate specialists)
