No one does fireworks quite like Gandalf! Just keep an eye on Merry and Pippin, there hasn’t been a dragon in these parts for ages… This design has an old-time etching style. The composition is bilaterally balanced and is visually interesting. I enjoy the texture and the different typographic elements. The flat light blue -gray color on the dark indigo background creates a nice contrast.
Thank You Azafran

This moth/bee provides the honey Heisenberg uses to sweeten his cooks. The design is composed from simple outlines. Wonderful thick to thin ratio of line width to create overall color. The basic geometry is nicely balanced. The large circular seal overhead anchors the design and repeats and relates to the circles within the insect.

“Where’s Esteban? Esteban was eaten! He was bitten? Eaten! [pause] He was swallowed whole? No! Chewed!” Stevie is out for revenge on his steamboat after the death of his friend Esteban and he’s packing’ dynamite. Super cute design referencing a movie I absolutely love! Nice big cartoon eyes along with thin Mickey Mouse limbs and big round shoes behind an enlarged ship’s wheel. Pleasant, calm, nautical color scheme.

Would you kindly check out this design? This scene depicts a rare moment of tenderness in Rapture between a Big Daddy and his Little Sister. Don’t get between this odd couple or you’ll be swimming with the fishes, literally! The nice elongated design portrays deep submersion. Simple gradation of teal tones on a dark blue background gives it an underwater feel. I enjoy the touch of yellow in the center of the design. The yellow leads the eye straight to the center first, then around and back to the center. The characters are skillfully shaped out of the negative space.

Wonderful mash up of two series known for their anti-heroes. The black and white composition of the design conveys a theme of right and wrong which is prevalent in both franchises. The wonderful dynamic angle in the composition makes the figures appear larger than life. The grouping of the figures set in formation shows hierarchy. The typographic treatment is on point, conveying the dark graphic novel style.

I guess that sweet tooth finally came back to haunt Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster! If the letter of the day is B, then the number must be 3 because this is in my top 3! Hilarious shirt design. Using simple flat colors, Cookie Monster’s face is rendered in complete horror. His hands up and fingers spread apart convey a sense of terror. The Count’s hands seem to gently wrap around Cookie Monster, caressing him as he sucks his blood.
