Ramires' Moly - Finally finished!

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2011 is treating you well so far.

So, I've had Ramires' book for far too long now but after the incredible image he made for my book I felt I really had to knock this out of the park. After scrapping a few different sketches I hit upon the idea of using Ramires' own dream-like images in the drawing. I've loved his blimp-whales ever since I found them on his flickrstream. I also love his intricate speaker systems which suspend from the whales. I figured Claudio should definitely captain the wonderful craft bringing ethereal sounds to all those he drifts over. Hope you like it Claudio!

I'm debating adding full-color to the two inset panels, but I'll probably just leave them alone. Now, who should this go to next? Or should I send it to Marty and see if he can squeeze it into the show?

How I said in Flickr: WOW, and WOW again :-))) I have no words my friend, but I'll try to say how much I love It... I think you know me, the elements of my work are more important than my own Image, and it's a a fact to me. I love the integration with previous work done through the music. This really is me riding my Flying whale and using my monocle :-)) I love your figure on the beach too, Thank you, muchas gracias, merci beaucoup, Muito obrigado :-))

I don't know who are free to work in my book now, maybe Robert is the next, can you confirm
