  1. It looks awesome James, I love it! Did you come up with the logo as well? I just love the look and feel of the whole piece. It feels very fun, youthful and mysterious. All perfect emotions for the event you created this for.

    Great job!

  2. Even though this poster was done as a commissioned illustration, I think I like it most out of all your work. It really leads your eye to look at the subtle details like the trees in the lower left. Keep it up!

  3. I wish it encompassed some of the detail of your pasta retro cosmic work. But you’re the artist, and this is just one guy’s opinion.

  4. This is awesome, James. You got to post a tutorial someday to show how you make one of your pieces. I like the one you brought in Computer Arts really much.

    Thank you for a wonderful site.

  5. Andrew, thanks! No, I was provided the logo from the IYA. I would assume they had all of the branding complete for the years’ events long before 2009.

    Jared, I appreciate the kind words, man :)

    Mr Carlsen, I plan on making more posts in the future outlining some of my processes and techniques, the trick is really to find the time to write them up. Hopefully soon.

  6. Would of loved to of seen a nice flared digital clock of stars.

    The bottom of the clock and the deep blues around it are awesome though.

    Don’t mean to be pushy but any idea when Legacy 2600 will be available again?

    All Best

  7. This is just really awsome. I can see some same technique-styles just like the one you wrote a tutorial of, which was also done by Abduzeedo.

    Nice nice work!

  8. Reminds me of the lemony snicket’s unfortunate events dvd cover typeface.
    Is it the same?

  9. Simon, I will be offering Legacy 2600 again very soon. I am currently planning an order from the printer to replenish my stock, and Legacy is included. I’ll be sure to announce when it’s available.

    Ralph, I’m not sure. The logo was supplied to me from the IYA2009 team so I’m unsure about it’s inspirations :)

  10. Did you choose 2:54 because of 2 – 5 April?

    Pardon me if that’s plainly obvious. I’m new here.
