It bums me out that I can pick out a Hampton poster for all the wrong reasons. You can draw like a mutherfucker. Like a muther fucker, Amazing llustrations. Most definitely some of the best I've ever seen.
But your type...ah man..sometimes you hit it and your illustration totally carries it...no problem there. But sometimes it doesn't. And this is one of them times.
If I can be so humble and relay to you one simple rule I completely understand as far as designing with type goes., which more than applies since your drawing is so strong.
The rule is this.
Never let your hair be more interesting than your face.
I would love to one day collaborate with you,but I doubt it will ever happen. I think we could both make each other look smart.
