Bad things happen.

I know it's too early for bad news, but things happen and many times you just can't change them. My partner and art director on this project Tyler Schatz can no longer work with me on this project due to his busy schedule, so we mutually decided to put a hold on his role until whenever he feels he can join again.

 This is Tyler's delicious direction. 

Mean while, and since I had no plans of stopping I decided to revert back to the old style I originally envisioned, live photo collage processed to match my original staging and flat layout on one hand, and a more painterly and stylized color key on the other. If you go back a couple of posts you will find the color keys I'm aiming to hit.    

NYC provides no shortage of crummy old and beautiful facades that beg to be photographed like the above building. It's odd how close it is to my drawing, I got real lucky on this one. 
I've goto give a shout out to my friend Nick Dubois who lent me his awesome Canon. 

And this is the outcome after cropping, collage, and paint over. I'm pretty sure I'll revisit it again when I get to the final composition. I hope you like it.
