    this side is great , keep the good work

    • thank you zet!

  • I must concur with Jacob. Being featured on Booooooom is the best web-related experience I’ve had yet as an artist. It’s a blog I visit (at least) twice a day, so it is really a dream come true for me. And, yes, people seem to have come out of the woodwork as a result, interested in my work. I’d say that a big “THANK YOU JEFF” is in order.

    I can’t tell you how many good design blogs I have followed for the last five years and how many of those have died. Your blog is the only one that has been consistently great and fun to follow.

    I understand how much work it is to keep up but I want to thank you for keeping one of the best design sites on the web.

    • thanks i will do my best to keep it going and keep it consistent! it definitely is a lot of work but i enjoy it even more than i did when i started

Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
