    Check out this guy's site - he works almost all in ballpoint pen - he's done some great artwork for Built to Spill, The Treepeople and some other great bands. Very cool abstract stuff - not exactly colorful enough for a desktop but cool nevertheless.

    thats really cool

    see i like less colorful backgrounds, i like minimal non distracting art too. i had grey as my background for a long time, and i go back to it all the time.

    Eh... seems to me like the artist is trying to be a bit too "deep" with his titles, but that's just me. ;)

    Some of them kinda remind me of preproduction sketches you might see from Nightmare Before Christmas...

    he doesn't really write all of his titles, thats one of his gimmicks, peopel submit titles and then he makes a picture if he likes it or it inspires him ...
