    You were the guy who did the Harry Potter poster?! Holy shit. And those two words can summarize everything else too.

    Ah, to finally see the work Chris has been talking about for so long! Welcome, Mike, welcome welcome welcome. It's nice to know where so many of those amazing posters came from now. It's really great to have you around here.

    Super way to get things started!

    frikin sweet man...they should definitely have your paintings for the posters instead.

    just wondering, wouldn't it be faster to tweak certain elements in photoshop for say the harry potter posters if its just for concept though? seems kind of time consuming drawing the same dumbledore face 3 times?

    can't to see more man, welcome to CA!
