Mshindo is a master, but to say he's better than Alex Ross is crap! I see them on the same level if anything. I use to think Mshindo was better than Ross, but after comparing the two's work it's a tie for me. Mshindo uses cut and paste on some of his work. Alex Ross draws everything by hand and paints it. Both masters and it's even! IMO!

Incredible!

This is my first sample of Mshindo artwork.

Yes, yes, limit your attacks to a minute please! 8)

I would really love to see his work in animated form.

Crap? Art my wonderfully insightful friend is subjective. Some will agree with you and some will not. My art has been forged to speak for the African experience I am aware of with high focus. This is something Alex Ross need not focus on. Being in his company is still an honor.

I tell you, point blank, given the choice I would work with Mshindo every time.

Wow....just awsome!  This is my first exposure to this artist and to say that I'm impressed would be an understatement.  The closest I've seen to this is probably Joe Jusko.  I'll definitely have my eye out for more of this, though.  ;D

Mshindo no need to get offended. Whip some of the mysty dust from your eyes. Never said your work was crap either. I said you was a master, but i do not agree your better than Ross. Thanks for calling me wonderful man. Insightful to you say. Thanks buddy!

So what? It's the finished art that is the point. Nobody cares or should care about the artist's process. Describing that as "cut and paste" is insulting to the artist. That isn't "cut and paste." Don't believe me? Try it yourself and see.

Natural Mystic, I didn't realize this was your work. You are truly talented, I would love to see your work on a wider platform.
