“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

[BEEP!]... Hey, man. Your lady called me and said to keep you company so you won't cry like a pussy while she's out. Gimme a call, yeah? Tony, Jeff, Tony and I are going out to that shit Mexican place you don't like on 5th? You're coming with us. Get outta' your sweats and come on. Umm... I'm on my cell. Hit me back. [BE-BEEP!]

[BEEP!]... Hey, buddy! Uh... Tony. No, the other one. Uh... Jackie just called and said you're sitting at home being a fag. Uh... stop it and come out with us later on!

The writing on these are pretty dang good. And I am loving the balance and composition in this series.

Keep it up!

Incredible, man. Incredible.

Also, I'm pretty sure most (good) European hotels have cell chargers to borrow (or can charge at the desk for you).

I feel like such an incredible loser every single time I see these perfect word and image combinations. It's not enough that each element alone is marvelous, but they also have to be juxtaposed just so beautifully, as well, don't they?

Seriously inspirational work.

Beautiful use of the foreground as the frame. What really makes this work IMO is your mastery of perspective. I love it.
