The Art Of Heb Mueller - Tinges Of Diesel Punk

When I see the work of Heb Mueller, I can only think of the pieces of inspiration that came together to create the aesthetic of Skullgirls, the pseudo-anime inspired beat 'em up from the mind of Alex Ahad and co. Thing is, Heb Mueller is simply the alias of a Japanese artist with a love of western culture, western cars and a diesel punk aesthetic.

Diesel punk pertains to a severely undertapped genre, combining the aesthetics of diesel technology with retro-futurism. The most well known application of this genre is probably Fallout and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, although diesel punk deserves a lot more love compared to it's oversaturated cousin, steampunk. Cars, babes and mayhem after the break.
