The Cutthroat Capitalism one looks like an 8-bit Chris Ware. Fun stuff.

I want to smell dark matter.

Brilliant work, and the website is quite nice as well. The long written description on the 'Information' page is such a refreshing departure from most designer's websites, where it seems de rigueur to say as little about yourself as possible in order to maintain a sort of professional mysteriousness.

I like the fact that he (?) has carefully pre-defined a palette of colors to define the feel of his (I'm so sick of gender-specific third-person-singular pronouns, dear English. Is Siggi a male or female name?) art across the whole body of work.

Siggi is a male. It's short for Sigur├░ur.

Also his patronym means he is Eggert's son. If he were a girl, I guess he would be Eggertsd├│ttir.

In his bio he says one of his future goals is to make prints for umbrellas - got him beat on that front.

...He's got me beat on every other.
