Ways by mrgraphicsguy Ways by mrgraphicsguy
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth
if you go straight long enough
you'll end up where you were.


This piece is pretty similar to my latest piece Funeral 1955. I liked the style of an open book and it worked pretty well with my new concept.

Photoshop and Illustrator, some fonts and a lot of texture work... stock comes from ~bashcorpo, ~zombiestock and ~gabrielfam. Thank you!

wow! wow! I'm so glad I stumbled upon this. It's stunning!

This design doesn't age! You submitted it long ago, and it still looks so modern. (:

And anyone who quotes Modest Mouse is win in my book.

I like the new arrangement style. The pieces of tape along the top are great touches, as are the texture of the book. The bar code and text on the bottom piece could be overlayed more into the texture (they're floating a little)...and for some reason the absolute black and the sharp edges of text on the top seem really contrasting to the curves and faded black of the bottom. I think the funeral piece you did tied together a little better, but still very well done! =)

Thank you very much for your comment. I must admit that you are right, I should have spent more time on the bottom, the text and the barcode do float... hmmm, I should focus on such details more :). It's good that you mentioned that so I will look for such things next time.

wow amazing!
great use of color!
And great use of texture like always!

However i wouldn't have used the graphic on the middle part of the book, the seam if you know what i mean. The part where the book folds together.
