Stamp of Approval: Stephane Manel

Every once and a while your mind is blown to pieces. Right when I thought illustration was dead, along comes French artist Stephane Manel.

Wow, pretty incredible!

I was watching a music video for Chromeo's "Momma's Boy;" a sick song from the great new "digital" duo (check it out on their MySpace page - the first video on the left side of the page). It was an illustrated video directed and illustrated by the aforementioned Manel. Well, I was so impressed by the video that I Googled him, went to his site and was blooown awaaay.

He is the future of pop art without a doubt. Thanks Stephane for expanding my brain today. Oh, and Chromeo is amaaazing as well. Buying their double disc today.

I will be emulating his style in some artwork soon and will post one illustration that I did months ago that is similar to his style. Still working on the Claypool and eco stuff as well.
