I love Illustration and I'll be sure to grab this one. does anyone know if Jim Vadeboncoeur is still publishing Images? I can't find it anywhere or any word on whether it is still being published.

I love the look of Kunster's work, I love that evidence of the brush and the human hand.
Jim, your blog is a constant encouragement to work and get ink and paint stained hands and to (I think) have a lot more fun while waiting in line at the post office holding a sketchbook instead of a phone or blackberry.

Sorry, "Kunstler".

I've been thinking about it for a while, and this post pushed me over the edge. I just got a subscription.

Good job, Mr. Gurney. ;-)
