While the ideas are brand new there is a lot of inspiration from cult movies like Blade Runner or Ghost in the Shell, comics like Darrow's Harboiled or Moebius The incal, or novels like Gibson's Neuromancer.

I would describe the style as sketchy and spontaneous, I give a lot of importance to detail and color choices, I keep the rendering style of the illustrations very simple so I can focus on doing impactful color combinations.

  1. I honestly hope that the gods of cyberpunk heaven call down and I can work with Josan into turning this into a film. I know that sounds to ambitious but I am a very ambitious person, but I am a huge fan of the cyberpunk genre and hopefully if Josan says "Jordan, how would you like to direct The Future is Now film" I would be super duper happy.
