worn







































even though his record collection was old and worn, Lou still found comfort in the sound of cracks and pops that only come with vinyl...

The only drawing is just enough worn: it seems you took out from the bottom of a dusty trunk. GREAT!!!!

Great work you have here Michael. Your style is so peculiar, it reminds me old (and wonderful) cartoons... And I like very much your way of using computer to do the color: I think it's very clever and warm... Really, really good!

Damn Michael, you're so consistent...consistently great!

I'm just loving the 3D quality to this piece, it looks incredible. Great idea. I think this is one of my favorite's Michael. I like everything about it.

I find myself spending a good deal of time looking at each of your images because they are filled with so much wonderful detail...from the textures, to the colour, to the characters, to the overall concept etc.
