Both of these TV shows are amazing in all sorts of ways. With these two pieces I wanted to try a different style, more along the lines of Drew Struzan and Paul Shipper.

Plenty of both don't work that well of course! Still, you have to start somewhere, right?

The three are: JJ Abrams, Joss Whedon and Zack Snyder. To see much more of my work, please visit my website: Neil Davies Caricature & Illustration.
