Squares Ville, originally uploaded by Brian Raszka.

Another in my continuing series of illustrations.
Squaresville. Where everything is angular.
One for the portfolio. This is a new style and I am excited about where it will go as I add images. As I said it is a new style but has many elements that I have been using for years: ink drawing, textures both hand and mechanically created, use of hand-created type all put together and colored digitally.
I enjoy working in the digital realm because I can rearrange, resize, recolor at will. I don't use Photoshop's fancy tricks because I want to keep to as close to a hand-done look as possible. Having said that, you have to know Photoshop pretty well to keep to a hand-done look.
