I don't really share my commercial work, because it's seldom exciting, but today is different.

Today I began working on a commission that is a dream-like take on a Utopian Scholastic aesthetic/movement.

Not only the research part of the project was a lots of nostalgic fun, but I finally have use for the 90s stock photo CDs I own (also, it was a great excuse to track down and buy few more ;)

Slowly making progress on the Utopian Scholastic piece.

Once my next order of 90s stockphoto CDs comes in the next few days I will see how it looks with added sky (I want a 90s photo for that so I can keep the grain the vintage photography).

Now time to find more elements to put "inside" the head, so that statue does not feel too lonely.

More progress on the Utopian Scholastic piece, really leaning into the tropes, but it is a pastiche after all :D

Sadly, it seems there are some issues at US postal Service, so I haven't had the chance to use my "new" 90s stock photos, but I still want to see if I can fit some.

After a bit more tweaking, the utopian scholastic piece is done and dusted. I am quite proud of it :)
