Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla
Inspired by the top logo of GOOGLE (which informed me today was Nikola's birthday), I decided to pay a tribute, in the old fashioned way, to the great Tesla, a figure that has defintiely all the cards to be included in any pulp story (fictional or real).
Loved what they did with him in "The Prestige" (played by the excellent David Bowie).

Happy Birthday, Nikola!

I loved what they did his character in The Prestige (great movie, btw). Portrayed in such a POWERFUL way by David Bowie. The BDay card you drew back there is amazing, as always, your color usage is superb. Wish I could collect'em all and frame them.

Slavi: no, thank you for the always kind words, I really appreciate it :)
Simon: HA! Always good to listen to some good ol' Bowie ;) Thanks!
Rick: indeed, Rick, indeed :)
Neue: Thank you! :) At one point I am planning to do a big size book, HC, collecting all of these. Stay tuned.
