I came across this LA artist and founder of Fudge Factory Comics, travis millard that reminded me of detroit artist chris crowder. (first 3 pics are millard's sketches)
crowder's works above/below

I got chucks of guys like him in my stool.here are some better picks with some detail, they are big.http://firstname.lastname@example.org
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.(The "fat" guy from CPop.)
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.
Wow! Are you smart! Keep on keepin' on!
