Here is some stuff that's a bit different than the video game work I posted last time. First off is an ad I did for Adidas Originals, called the Oregon:
This is an apparel design for my site:
This next one was done for an article by PingMag, a Japanese web magazine:
And these last two are part of a collaboration with a French photographer called Stéphane Tartelin, who took these shots here in Tokyo with a pinhole camera:
About that Adidas ad. Did you do that for 180Amsterdam?
Very very cool stuff, btw.
The third one (the PingMag piece) is terrific! The colors and motion, just beautiful.
not sure how I feel about the colabs at the bottom. They look nice, but leave me wishing the backgrounds were drawings too
just saw these from the interview you did - great work.
nice stuff again man, the PingMag piece is fucking excellent
The PingMag piece inspires!
wow Gez, I've been a fan for a while but these last ones really stand out. While the japanese-web illustration is a bit james jean-ish, I love it and I think it takes your skill in draftsmanship to pull something like that off. But the photo collabs are what really stand out to me. They're really evoking something in me that I can't quite put my finger on. They're both really delicate and fascinating to look at, and I think your choices of what to draw over the photos is awesome. Way to go with your instincts (if in fact that's what you did ).
I love it, that's all I gotta say. What I wouldn't give for a print of either of the last two.

I can go twice as high...
Nothing but love man. Really cool!

I saw these from the interview too. Very interesting stuff. The comercial is very cool and I like the idea to add drawn figures in to photographs. The Logo is excellent done and I like the japanese style picture very much.
And I'm interested too, about what Joshua asked. Your art is king
man, i usually hate the combination of photo and graphic! -these two pictures changed my mind! great work!
Very innovative stuff here, bravo.

Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
The ukyo-e one is bloody beautiful. Got anything more planned in that vein?
Gezfry, gotta be one of the best website designs I have seen. Compliments the high quality and style of your artwork, wicked stuff man.
great works bro, love the designs , my fave is the third one for the japanese magazine
my email = firstname.lastname@example.org
some stuff to show:
wow i really really love those last three...so nice
Wow. Always appreciate your posts. As everyone has been saying, that ping mag image is gorgeous.
fantastic gez been a fan of your work for a while now. the japanese print peice is most impressive
I'm most definetly awestruck! These are wonderful. You are an amazing artist who give me an infinite amount of inspration. The third one, for PingMag kept me mezmerised for quite a long time. It is one of the most beutiful images I've ever seen. Honestly.
Hi Gez, Great work as always! Have you ever considered going into footwear/fashion illustration? It is just that some pieces on your site have some stand out designs when it comes to clothing.
I am also liking the ukiyo-e style print, do you have any particular favourite woodblock artists or prints which inspire you?
Hey, we're seeing a lot of work from you lately....and its still not enough. Whenever I see your name next to a post I know we are in for a visual treat.
I love the third one as much as everybody else.
But the "photo drawings" are definately something new.
Never saw something like that before, cool stuff.

thanks a lot guys!
Deke - yes, 180 Amsterdam. Have you done stuff for them too? I love your online portfolio, great stuff.
Dave - thanks. i'm not really completely sure about the photo pics but i think i like them.. i can see why you're not sold though
rascar - thanks!
shinryu - cheers!
scrawneh - thanks!
dallas - thanks!
kian - not really, but thanks
kress - thanks! i'm really glad you like the photo pics that much. i don't have plans for prints at the moment, but maybe some time.. by the way, while i like james jean's work a lot, it's not really an influence. the biggest influences for that pic were the works of the shin-hanga artists from the first half of the 20th century and the superflat movement (murakami takashi, etc.)
joshua - cheers, and for the message on ping too the textures were a combination of a bunch of stuff, some blank washi paper i scanned, and various scanned areas of washi printed using the ukiyo-e technique (i.e. with wooden blocks).
gun - thanks!
arne - glad to hear it, thanks!
blue - cheers!
vigostar - thank you!
walnut - thanks, not right now, but maybe at some point.
jp - cheers, glad you liked the site.
bruno - cheers!
wes - thanks! your work is awesome.
zao - wow, thanks a lot.
yumiko - cheers!
groover - thanks!
mike - thanks, actually i like doing this kind of stuff more than character designs, because there is more leeway to be crazy and be yourself. it's all fun though.
shao - thanks!
kakatuz - thanks, that means a lot.
glynn - thanks, i'm glad you like my clothing designs. rather than straight fashion illustration, the area i'm most interested in is advertising illustration, which often overlaps.
dikiminster - hey man, how's it going. thanks for always being so kind with your posts.
jabo - thanks!
addict - cool, thanks!
very nice esp the last one is amazing
