Turbo RIP

I just recently found out about Turbo, from paris, passing away. Though I wasn't super close to him we talked occasionaly and I remember meeting him a couple times in Paris as we have strong mutual friends. I was really sad to hear about his death as not only was he a very gifted artist but he was also an incredibly nice person.


As for this hommage piece I tried to stay mechanical and blocky as a way to be close to his style. I was initially going for a white outline but one of my whites clogged leaving me only with a quarter of white in another can. Changed to a red instead, getting inspired by two color schemes that I have seen recently one from Jurne and another from Chain3. Managed to save some of the white to highlight the RIP imbedded in his letters.


Rest In Peace R.
