Qwasian : The Hardest working man Photoshop, THREE

Continuing from the previous gallery of art by Qwasian Phillips, and Team Brinkz here are 30 more pieces from that will complete this update to Quasian's work. Through all this experience, note that producing cover after cover, all the type is still readable and telegraphic. Some of the custom lettering is a bit more difficult, but hey -- it's really tough to put out this much work, while keeping it all fairly different and fresh. Hats off to Qwasian, and keep up the great work! March 22, 2014

I can still remember the first time I saw a quill, dipped in paint, dragging out such beautiful lettering. I ran across a YouTube video that brought back those crystal-clear memories! Let me share the story with you, and ask that you share your story with 60-Seconds readers! January 14, 2014
