These are fast one-offs I'm doing for a larger piece, so I referenced whatever photos or movies I had lying around for efficiency. Each of these is supposed to be a black and white security camera shot of a crime or something used to defame an individual (in this case a corrupt cop). Although they don't have the typical high angle security camera perspective, they had to deliver a quick punch for effect, as they would be reduced into a larger mosaic of screens in a courtroom scene, so I just illustrated scenes or shots that got the message across instead of abiding to strict realism.
I thought I would show some of them here before they go through a few more filters and distortions and then get reduced down to background details.

I struggled with how to make this one interesting, since the direction was just to do any person in particular being entranced by a program used by the Illuminati to brainwash people, and that presented few options besides a guy entranced in front of a computer screen in a room. My desire was to do something a bit more spectacular, to entice investors, so I made the setting a luxurious apartment in Tokyo. The program is being used by an associate/enemy of one of the characters in the film, who is a Japanese businessman. I didn't show the computer screen because I thought such an intense experience should be left to the mind of the viewer.
I also got the chance to do another 'japanese print' style piece and throw it in the background. Attempting linework like that really makes you appreciate them in a whole other way, besides their aesthetic qualities.

So it's been a while since I last posted, but here's a small glimpse into what I have been up to.
But the real news is the new website.
Let me know what you guys think, if you're still out there.
