So I was listening to the always awesome Asaf Hanuka (on Big Illustration Party Time Podcast), brother to Tomer Hanuka, whom I featured earlier in this blog. Anyway, he mentions how he loves the comic-book aesthetic, and how surprised he was when it became in vogue in the professional illustration world. Nobody could've predicated it really...

Nobody knows how long this bubble will last. In the meantime, I'm loving every minute of it. Here's another artist doing the same!!

Or better yet, watch how he works:
