The background fits perfectly, it brings the focus to the subject, and has enough detail in itself to deserve it's own attention. Helps give a sense of time; as the character pauses to read the 'menu'.. wonder what's in there?
I love the drawing, especially the memory machine itself, all those buttons, knobs and faders, and the style it was drawn in is fantastic
Tight illustration, uniquely stylized and the 2D in back adds a nice modern flare. Interesting concept behind this as well... the tube to the heart, demonstrating how emotions interconnect with mentality is a great symbolic component to the piece. Superb work!
