His drawings are fascinating. He mixes Chinese and Western techniques, and it makes me feel giddy to see familiarly English scenes treated in such an exotic way. Exotic? Different?
I need this book. Will someone buy it for me?
Chris Haughton children's book, found in the V & A museum in London. I read it cover to cover in the gift shop and was thoroughly charmed.
Dogs, kids, men; they always try to do the right thing but are ultimately tempted to follow their base instincts.
But we love them despite their faults!
Anyway, the link takes you to Haughton's behind the scenes of the book including concept ideas and art and references.
Digital paintings from Massimo Carnevale, a comic artist. His use of colour and human expression is wonderful.He also seems to choose the less obvious scenes from films to illustrate. You know these scenes, but when you think "star wars" the cantina isn't the first thing that comes to mind, is it?

Some of my favourite paper artists from the book in the title of this post. Most fold or cut, but in the last picture, Allen messes about with a pulp fiction cover to make it three dimensional.
I have to overcome my intense hatred of folding paper. Paper is not just for drawing on.
