"American Royalty" by Sam Spratt commissioned by Childish Gambino
Sam Spratt’s commissioned illustrations for actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.
"What began as cover art for his mixtape ‘Royalty’ evolved into a series of Rockwell-esque vignettes on Americana meant to highlight the side of hip-hop that tends to take a back seat to “money, cars, and jewelry” – where you come from.
The collection of 10 illustrations cover a wide-spectrum of the little moments – the struggles, the simple pleasures, the risks, the irony, the humor, the hopes, and the realities of the American life that maybe isn’t quite so cookie cutter.” Prints available at royalty.samspratt.com.
Aleksandr Petrov, - ’The Old Man and the Sea’, 1999
'A wonderful and inspiring adaptation of Earnest Hemingway's story of the same title. Aleksandr Petrov, the one man Army behind this classic adaptation, has achieved so many well deserved prestigious awards for this once in a life time movie that can be made.'

Sword of The Stranger sketches by Saito Tsunenori and superbly animated by one of my animation idols Yutaka Nakamura. Good lord.
I adore these.
