That's nice.

What are you using? Illustrator or Freehand?

The concepts are hand sketched and scanned, Trips works in Vectors and I work in Rasters, ie Trips uses Corel Draw and I use Photoshop. The work you see here is only photohop, Trips is busy on the vector work right now.

I see. Why don't you just use Illustrator to do the vector bits and then they are easily exportable to photoshop where you can work on them?

YOu could actually do almost all of that in Illustrator.

I prefer the painterly process of photoshop, as I use photohop with a Wacom graphics tablet, you cant get quite the same expression with vectors. But you are right, I will always bounce between Illustrator and Photoshop for my professional work.

Trips and I will usually collaborate as well, he will do the vector art and I will smootha nd texture it in photoshop.

I will try post up examples of Trips' vector work and some before and after stuff.

JHB, we hope to have an exhibition early next year, so yeah, please bruv, we are looking for any like minded individuals to get involved. It does get a bit contentious like I said with Graf artists putting it down for real on the streets, but it is an artform on its own with its roots deep in original graf culture.

Nice is an understatement,I think is beautiful,full of life and I like the feeling I got when I first laid my eyes on it.
It gives me hope to still have faith in this huge rush rush  city named Jozi.

Beautiful work right there,amazing. :)

Bet you gently stroked it with your mouse when no one was looking. Do you feel dirty now? Just wondering.
