  1. Great work-loved the short! Design influence from UPA, Steinberg, Hirschfeld, Picasso- all my faves!

    1. Many thanks! My hero is Ed Benedict (along with Hirschfeld & Picasso), so I'd like to think there's a bit of his influence in there as well.

      I've been following your blog for some time now - love your work!
