Adobe Illustrator CS2
Here's a revamp of something I did a few years back. Just simplified shapes and (for the most part) solid colors. The purple background triangle was a vector shape, then rasterized. I added a little texture with film grain and other effects, then zoom blurred it to get the speed effect.
The title text, I think, is LCD. I copied and pasted two versions of the text and set them in back of the original, toggling each to either side and changing the colors to add depth and interest. I created a row of thin lines in front of the text, then played with the transparency and colors to achieve the t.v. lines effect.
I'm thinking he looks pretty rambunctious, with a spit-in-death's-eye attitude! :)
