Pull up a hot coffee and get comfortable with a colossal image filled post from Darian Zam on the work of one of New Zealand's most successful commercial artists Bernie Roundhill.

Thanks for the props. I really don't check in on this blog nearly as much as I should, so I miss this stuff.
I've come to the conclusion that there were some very strange things going on in Bernie's head - as exemplified by the creepy looks in the eyes of a lot of his renderings of people. I can't quite put it into words but it kind of gives me the shivers.
