I love the work of Mr Bobby Chiu (Imaginism, CGSociety, DeviantArt), he brings such a wonderfully quirky vision to his creatures and characters which really works for me. I admit to not having checked out Schoolism.com yet, but it would be super to learn from his wonderful digital artistic skills.

There is a story in each portrayal that is wonderful and shows a depth to the characters even when they are just sketchy concepts – inspiring.
