this is so beautiful. hey jeff, was the cover to ayn rand's anthem an inspiration? http://static.flickr.com/55/145168861_2a828818c2.jpg
i don't know the illustrator's name off the top of my head, but you have totally channeled his vibe here. so nice.
to quote Jeff: I started with the general shape of that guy from somewhere and didi the collage, the skull, the hand etc. and designed the type and grid all myself and also created the old looking background from scratch.
