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.

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.

Wonderful mash-up of clever villains. The God of Mischief looks well in the Joker makeup. The amount of detail on the figure’s face really portrays the artist’s intent to combine both characters. If the actor, Tom Hiddleston, actually put on Joker makeup, this is exactly what he would look like. The high shine, sleek effect given to Loki’s head dress is MARVELous on black. The stark white, disembodied head looks intriguing and ominous.

Awesome use of the glow in the dark gimmick. The concept of changing and the contrast of light and dark work well for the subject matter. The lights on version of Walter White portrays him broken and disintegrating on the blue meth crystals. The lights off version portrays Heisenberg, the shady dark side of the the alter ego of this character. The metamorphous of the shirt nicely mirrors the change in the character in the show.

Today must be a “I Love black shirts with a disembodied head” day.
The king of the grim and macabre is strikingly shaded using light tones on a dark background. I enjoy the treatment of the highlights in the figure’s hair. It looks shiny and well groomed. The light tones on the forehead create a gravitational pull towards the eyes. The placement of the text near his enthralling eyes, creates movement from figure to text.
