Here are some really nice pre-publication quotes I've gotten on it:
"Jakobs diverse graphic work continues to evolve in leaps and bounds. Volume 2 really shows hes becoming a master of carefully chosen, limited color palettes and bold compositions great stuff!"
Nathan Jurevicius Creator of Scarygirl [link]
"A pristine, candy-coated experience, liquid in movement, crystalline in execution; bite down to the core and youll find a golden blast of optimism."
James Jean Artist of Fables, Prada and Kindling [link]
"Jakob Westmans work lives (beautifully) in that no-mans land between illustration and pure design plus there is sculpture, to prove that he can apparently do everything."
Mike Mignola Creator of Hellboy [link]
"A throbbing dance party for the eyes with colorful images like the soundtrack to a constantly moving Euro-cool lifestyle. All beautifully designed in this must-have book."
Kevin Dart Creator of Yuki 7 [link]
"I really think youll like this book. If not, feel free to drop me a line. Id love to spell out the ways that youre wrong."
Rev. Dave Johnson 100 Bullets [link]
"All we can say is Wow! We really enjoy Jakobs varied and exciting body of work the MTV Japan pieces in particular."
