2007 :: Rev It Up and Go !



Was asked by my agent to do the new wraparound cover for the latest illustrator groupbook. Most enjoyable piece I've worked on in a while. Had a lot of fun with this one and was pretty happy with how it turned out.

Wow, thanks for the visit. I am not worthy. These are great pieces here. I am a sucker for retro especially pulp.

great! I agree with all the kind words for you.

UrbanBarbarian said...

CLASSIC!!!! Damn, that's nice!

Marcos Mateu said...

I like your work and its "between illustration and comic.book" kind of quality! Nice!

Dominic Bugatto said...

adam - thanks for stopping by , you're work kicks!

dibujador - many thanks

Dan - thanks man

marcos - an interesting observation , you're quite correct , though sometimes it's difficult to merge the two approaches and not be cliche.

great image. Really like the way you worked out the three separate compositions. An added challenge formatting for a wraparound
