Paperweight Zine - Apocalypse Issue Submission
My contribution to the second Paperweight zine. In contrast to the first submission I may have gone too far with the toner. Generally I find it very difficult to discern what it is that has influenced and informed my work. And although I don't believe I consciously emulated their works, while uploading this I have managed to think of images by perhaps my two favourite artists that it bears resemblance too. The second image is from Eiichiro Oda's series One Piece. My favourite series by far. A distant and still very very beloved second being Neon Genesis Evangelion. The third image is the iconic logo created by Yoshitaka Amano of Final Fantasy fame. Far from being an example of his best work, or even best series logo, the fiery meteor is nevertheless indelibly burned into my memory.
