I love it. I love how massive the whale looks compared to the tiny boat. What a great use of scale and layout.
I went to his website and have a good ol' nosey and really love his work. I like his textured backgrounds and is use of light is very thoughtful.
I like that he sometimes includes his work in progress on his website along side the final piece. I find it really interesting to see how people work and get from an initial thought to a final illustration compared to my own process of working.
