I may have gotten a little distracted by the non-transportation features of this image, but I’m still pretty happy with how it came out…
Folks, Daniel Mitsui’s work is just blowing me away. Anyone who knows me and is familiar with my art knows why I love this stuff: it kicks color to the curb, overdoses on ornamentation, and adopts an almost obsessive-compulsive attention to detail. Very large to very small detail work always gets me, and, well, heave a happy dose of Christian religious symbolism and medieval artistic sensibilities into that and I’m one happy camper.
It all reminds me of some of my favorite of Harry Clarke’s illustrations for Faust — but minus the disturbing phallus, and with more random little dinosaurs and amoebas thrown in.
