    Amazing work!

    I like much of his work, especially Micro Machines. I like his use of simple expressive shapes. Nevertheless, due to his stylistic choices I’m wondering just how good of a draftsman he is. I’m not sure whether he makes some of his choices to conform to today’s lazy modernist ideas like characters that always face forward, or he’s just not very skilled and plays to his artistic strengths.
