I really admire this work mainly for it's use of mixed media.
A lot of thought has obviously gone into the design process and the results are very pleasing to the eye... for me anyway. This is definitely a way of working that I want to start incorporating into my own designs.
It looks very hand-made, although I am sure it is not. An intricate collage of photographs, line drawings and shapes with textured backgrounds. I would be very interested in producing work like this, looking into the different textures and content to create something very intricate and personal.
