After doing so many record covers, I've been applying the Album Artifact treatment to various other things like characters, logos and burgers. Naturally, my favorite Space Traveler was amongst the first to be downsized. A few of the bits above are dedicated to Mori of RealXHead, who recently sent us a package that would make any of Santa's elves gasp. Check out this RealxRock Man!
For whatever weird reason, the 12x12 format has really struck a chord with me. The limited canvas presents a fun and (sometimes) quick challenge, and is a great exercise in color placement. It takes the "every bit counts" approach to another level- minimal, but in a way, complex. I think Matt's contained builds have mutated my brain.
