Brainwave. Issue 18. Moving Around

The latest issue of Brainwave is on the wheels, literally. I spent a lot of time doing the splash page for this issue trying to mix illustration with typography. Although the style looks fairly quick-to-do in its nature but it's quite deceiving. Took me some time to finish it off. The Tour De France illustration is inspired from the artworks of Malcolm Farley.

I just finished reading a compilation of Best American Comics 2007 put together by Chris Ware and it has given me all the more reason to step away from overtly decorative artworks for a while. To name a few of the inspiring artists - Anders Nilsen, Dan Zettwoch and Seth. I think I am going to try some minimal illustrations in coming issues.
