Did I inspire Olly Moss with my tribute to Japan: "In It's Shadow"? No! Very hell no! He inspired me. I'm a big fan of his art. And that piece was a shout out to Moss' style and of course Saul Bass (who Moss is inspired by). It was auctioned off for $200, 100% of the proceeds donated to the relief efforts in Japan.
So it wasn't a surprise to see that the first few seconds of this video of "Resistance 3" looked like my tribute art.
It wasn't a surprise at all because Moss designed the "Resistance 3" cover art. All hail the Moss.
Check out the full video below.
