Finally got the scanner back! Yay!

Pulp book covers, man - damn I wish they still needed artists for those things.

Gouache.

I love the art-deco style detail in the wallpaper and the cocktail shaker. Really makes it feel authentic. <3

Yeah! The Shaker! First to comment on the belabored deco shaker. Thanks for looking! :)

HA! Great angle. Also, I'm pretty impressed by how much color is in this piece, while it still retains a strong "film noir" visual flavor.

Great! Indeed, that's one of my primary objectives with these pieces - I love the feel of black an white movies, and I like the challenge of bringing color to those ideas without losing their spirit! Thanks for looking!

This is crazy impressive. A book with such a cover would certainly sell! The fact this is traditionally done blows my mind.

I agree about the book covers. Do you sometimes feel like all the best reasons to be an artist are all gone?
