this is great, and i like how the black and white,
and the lighting actually emote. it have a very definite mood.

Toyebot said...

well if i was a cat i would be flatlined, cuz curiousity got the best of me with that book title you gave. so i looked it up and sure enough there was your name. dude how awesome is that to have illustrated a book. i would love to do something like that! kick ass, nice stuff!! :)

Toyebot said...

Haha,thanks chacha!
It was a lot of fun, long hours, and a great learning experience. It's something that interests me so I'll get a chance to do more. Give it a try, you never know.
