very interesting to see these phil. youre so damned modest too...i was sitting at work saying that vehicle design was awesome when pete was driving it...and i think u were standing right next to me, and not even once did u say it was your concept, hahaha. kudos mate.

your art skills have been flourishing lately, and i can see that youre starting to get just a bit more curious about methods of color and painting, and its definitely showing in your work. keep up the good work.

its an honor to sit behind u, haha.

Hi Phil,

I'm a concept artist here in Dallas as well, and just checked out your blog for the first time - awesome work man! You've got an excellent design sense and a great range.

Are you on Linked In?

-Marco, Thanks man I appreciate the advice you've given me it helps.

-Wayne, Thanks Wayne, glad you like them!

-Areyh, Haha still showing that stuff huh? My advice for any one in art school is that you get out what you put in so work hard and put a lot of effort in and it will pay off. Unfortunately that's a road that goes both ways so work hard!

Mark, Wow thanks! I looked at your linked in and noticed you're also on Imdb your resume is HUGE I'm impressed! I also sent you an invite on linked and if u want to email me my addy is on the front page.

Congratulations, I love this game and your art!!.
Thanks Phil!!.

Anonymous: Thanks, I try very hard to improve so I'm glad someone thinks it's working!

Gene: Glad you like it, can't really take much credit for the style the game has now, that is mostly due to work that happened after I left. They did a good job with that tho and I do feel I had a hand in it at least somewhat heh.

DaviD Pereira: Great to hear it! I'm looking for an excuse to make another art post in the coming weeks so check back, and thanks again!
