I can see the resemblance, but Millard has a smarter use of space. I have a problem with Crowder's work in that the compositions become really boring. They feel a lot like looking at coins spilled on the floor because everything has pretty equal priority visually.

Crowder's stuff pretty frickin cool. I saw that piece at the Gallery Project and it made me a little queezy, but I couldn't look away. The panels don't really link up, so you have to put the story (if there is one) together yourself.

I know both.
Have shown Millard (in Vinyl Klash)
Topher will be in CPop's Nov 18th "Saints Preserve Us" group show in November.

Crowder in a landslide.

As much as I like chris' work, millard has depth, spacially. It bothers me that when looked at from a distance chris' work becomes a flat shade of grey.
