One of my major influences is comic and sci-fi art. Since most comic art is lineart, I am able to reproduce it in brass easily. These two plates are from a Liberty Meadows comic strip by Frank Cho. http://libertymeadows.com/ I did these early on to see how much detail I could hold. Eventually I am going to reproduce the entire strip on one plate. Also, I couldn't resist making a plate of a chimp in a top hat.
