first of all, PAIN IN THE ASS! this was a tricky fucker to print (or for me, pinhole, burn, rack, washout). during the whole process i couldn't wait to see how it would turn out though. once the black went on it just came to life. i could stop staring at the water and sea creatures in the background. amazing!!! and even thought the blend for the sky was a bitch every print came out looking beautiful.
emek is such a wonderful artist.
Holy Crap on a Cracker. EMEK!!! Just plain ol' clever, creative and well executed. I LOVE the details in every piece you do. This particular one, I really like the waves, whitecaps and splashes of the ocean. I like the netting on the masts. I like the violin pegs on the ends of the tentacles. The sky is great too, the texture and the colors. I tip my hat to you. Awesome!
while the illustration is absolutely killer to like umph degrees. other than the violin, i dont see the connection to the band. but thats me.
but regardless, A+++ on the drawing. that sea is borderline ridunkulous.
