    you do realise that you’ll have to do another series after this!
    (and are you missing part 5 for a reason?)
    this is great work, really enjoying the story with such powerful images.

  • Haha, I might just have to keep making them! Had way too much fun with this one. Sorry, this one is no5. I had the wrong part number in the description. Awesome to hear you’re enjoying it! Thanks a lot, Hege :)

    Shit was he trying to sell her one of those ‘Copy Watches’ like they do in Hong Kong? ‘Copy Watch?……Copy Watch?… buy COPY WATCH??’ I take it she didn’t like fake Rolexes then.

    Okay enough James – Lovely work again Andrew. Nice to see it take a change to the dark. Kinda Jekyll and Hyde like almost.

  • Haha, I’m looking forward to your comments on this series, that’s the funniest image in my head! Thanks a lot mate, you’re right about the J&H stance, this one played out in my head that way when I was editing it.
