    So judging by the fact there doesn't seem to be a lot of infrastructure dealing with Chicago's horribly nasty traffic problem... can i assume that Daley stays elected until 2055?

    Fantastic stuff! I was just visiting your blog, and I just saw the videos for your Japan Expo Illustration which happens to be great stuff from start to finish. I was just wondering how you make your color choices. What sort of decisions do you make when you're thinking of what colors to use?

    Thanks!

    Awesome work. I remember reading this story ages and ages ago - one of my favorite Bradbury stories. Love the bug sculpture. All of it really.

    Just been scribbling some stuff this afternoon, it's far from being finished - the title is there as a stand in, the font will be completely different I will have to design one - I just thought you could enjoy the messy process of it.

    Hello, black frog...Decided write my impression to you... hope you don't mind.

    What a strange phantasmagoria... everything is mixed together, epochs, styles, reality, fantasy. There is some kitsch in your image I think... hope you forgive me for that, but I think there is some... starting with the name of the heroine. Irina Molotov... that's very persistent hint. Molotov was a alias name though for this Bolshevik politician... I have to tell though... don't take the word kitsch as something bad... it is not... kitsch can becomes a style and it is so in your picture... It is like in some women vulgarity can be very attractive, the irresistible essence...
    So your picture is fruit of imagination, in my opinion, fantasy, inflated association... but that's all right... that's how new worlds are being created by writers and poets, aren't they?

    I can't tell for sure what period of time in Russian history you wanted to parody... So many hints and references to history ... but they are all slightly distorted, I think on purpose.
    The heroine ... I know there were women like her, especially after October coup d'etat... Some were from very good families with well known names, some even ex-aristocrats.
    It was very seductive and exciting to turn away from her past, and start everything from new, without any attachments and weaknesses. It was some sort of liberation...There were women like her walking around horny revolutionary sailers and soldiers, red comrades, armed with guns, ready to shoot anyone without long thinking. Military tribunals were a regular thing.

    So... this character makes me think about October revolution in Russia... and the red flag, and her leather jacket and chaos, and mess on streets and red ribbons of volunteers on the sleeves .
    The German helmets confuse me... looks like hint on WW2. She dressed like a person form late 30th, those straight square shoulders, and silhouette, and little hat...men wear gas masks...
    Her hat on the other hand reminds me this period of Civil war, 1918th...
    And after that I see the metal hook-like hands... and contemporary luggage in her hand ...so it looks like a mad surreal story.

    I started to feel an interest when from a indefinity I recognized the silhouettes of soldiers. And I like it when you skewed the figure of the heroine and she started to look very stylized... almost comical... so edgy and prickly... it gave her a personality: hot head, reckless girl, émancipe, limited, cruel, fast, little snake with sex-appeal, maybe addicted to cocaine. "Live today, tomorrow might not come" was a motto of the time.
    I think you tend to draw or paint women with faces lacking individuality though... in this image her well-put together, light figure is much more expressive than her face, cold and indifferent...
    Maybe it is a good thing... I remember though you put so much individuality in your teapots or London's crowd...Young women faces are a bit too generalized... I think the same about the pirate girl too...

    And colors... a bit too bright for my taste... I took your picture in Photoshop because I wanted to look at it all at once, it was too big.. and Photoshop changed colors, killed saturation, make them calmer, duller... I like it more, gave it sense of past and time between me and your characters.
    That's all...I like how you extract your characters from slob of paint, like a sculptor... and I like your way to tell stories... I believe you will continue with this story about little London inhabitants. they were very sweet, unforgettable, all of them... I hope you will breath life in them. I really like them.
