first one is really great.. the second doesnt dissapoint but the third lacks the punch the first two have. Cool style.. post more..

Ha ha.. I never really thought my stuff was eighties until last year at an exhibition here in Los Angeles everybody was like "Oh - your work is so 80's!!" So I guess if the shoe fits.....Originally Posted by spudstudios
You're likely thinking of Patrick NagelOriginally Posted by spudstudios
He's still one of my favorites.
i love the simple, strong, graphic appeal.
i think spud is right.
your work has much the same appeal.
i would explore that more.

Is that the guy who did the 80's illustrations that you see in every goddamn hair salon still to this day?!
ArtofCIP, I dig the stylization. The first one is graphic and doesn't rely on the lines as much (which is making it work better), and I think itf you cleaned up the lines and anatomy here the other two pieces would work a ton better.
Yep.. Nagel was the guy that every nail and hair salon has a rip-off graphic on the front window... Too bad the guy died at 38 years old... I deliborately vary and change my style - keeps it form getting boring.. Sometimes a style works and sometimes they don't... Anyways - thanx for the words yo!Originally Posted by strych9ine

I guess as long as one other person digs it then I'm not completely crazy....
