Great stuff! Love this illustration! Composition is great, with all the different objects and tools in the pack. Color choice and lighter are also really really awesome. Really inspiring. Again great stuff!

Nah, no way! You'd be amazed at my level of patience ;D
Wow, I just love this! (Like everything else around here, sheesh!) It almost has an old-fashioned kind of feel. Beautiful detail and contrast.
Thanks again Cindy!

Thank you Mary, I just looked at your Blog... great stuff!
Wow, excellent illo! This is EXACTLY how I pack to go hiking -- minus the trekking poles, that is. That would be just over-doing it.
Laura, better to have everything than not, especially TP:)
This is beautiful! If you don't get highlighted as best of the week, then there is something inherently wrong with the world.
Thanks Brandon... I believe that the pick of the week is a random choice but your vote counts with me.
This is excellent!! I love your style! His tiny little legs are a hilarious contrast.
Great work! You really managed to drive the idea home with the vertical format. As always, your drawing, color choices and painting technique are superb.I'm curious: I love the cracked oil paint effect you use as a finish on some of your work. Do you use a filter to create that or is it done by some other means?
Jim, Thanks for the nice comments. The crack is a hand painted crackle design that I created in photoshop. No filter just quite a bit of time. I then use the same pattern whenever needed.
Thanks for the info. I wondered if perhaps you had just made it yourself. It's less heavy-handed then some of the crackle filters I've seen.Keep up the good work! I've been loving your art since I discovered a short time ago and I check in frequently to look for updates. You have an absolutely wonderful color sense.
Love this illustration! :) Looked the other I.F illustrations through, but this was the most catching to me. That said, you certainly got some skills of my liking ;)Out of topic question: Are you by change of danish heritage? Noticed your name and started wondering about it
Martin, I am of Danish heritage and thanks for the comments, I truly appreciate them.
