    unbelievable!!! this is the most impressive sketchbook i have ever seen!!! you must be a very lucky person because it seems you can put all your thaughts and ideas on paper. There is so much work in here and it seems you simply can draw everything. are there any things you struggle with sometimes ???

    Holy shit this sketchbook is insane. I checked out the first 15 pages and I'm so overwhelmed with input. You've made so many film stuff, it's crazy and inspiring.

    I have a question though. On page one there are these Harry Potter teaser-poster. Why are there fireman on the cover? I never read the book, but I dont remember fireman in the movie either, also was orginally John Travolta playing Harry Potter? That would be the best thing ever happen I think.

    Cheers

    Django was a great flick and these posters are great!

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."

    A true honor to step inside the secret hidden bright corridors, of your brainblowing majestic
    artistic creative mind maze. Eye candies and sweet foamed soul food all around. I do make a
    pause before I step into anything similar to this caliber. I make a dramatic silent freeze frame
    in my life, I try to capture the essence of the ongoing enchanted moment. As a teenager I had
    no internet, the internet was non existent, it was something like a VHS porn tape to an early
    caveman. I didn’t appreciated nor I have shown no respect to the advanced research project agency
    network back then. I was like whistling all around, making not much movement or use in my
    lightly taken casual life. However near the end of the nineties, I knew that there are artists,
    through the big lake, they are there, they are doing magic, which I could witness through some
    hardly obtained magazines, and through that time tv screens. However I’ve never believed
    or imagined that I will ever be able, to watch some of those artists, and their work almost
    instantly and on demand. Communicate with them. It’s insane and impossible. Would surely
    say that. But look at us now, some fifteen years later, I do have access to this material, to this
    gold, I can browse, scroll and examine the steps that been made by the masters, at they highest
    and best peak performance. All thanks to the modern technology, the almighty internet, and
    of course the good willingness of these great artists. I went through so many mind battles and
    emotional kickbacks, to get here, to say something that will not sound too casual, and to admire
    these wonder pieces in a decent fashion. Your work and art legacy is a true example to all of us,
    a big encouraging sign, which gives us hope and will, to continue thriving toward our dreams,
    and to keep our minds and mental system on a safe level, throughout our whimsical unstable
    sandblasted art journeys. Does anyone need a motivation or a motivational igniting spark,
    all he needs to do is to click and to come here. This place, the collection of your pieces will
    brake a new shiny dawn, will makes anyone heart to glow, will make a little sissy girl to
    fight a bear and rip out his spine at the end. I like the boost and electric power gathering
    up in my mind cells, as I go through your work over and over again. The jobs that you’ve been
    working on lately, they are all fascinatingly majestic. I grew up on an eighties and nineties
    movies, so as the industry go deeper in the future, I grew a bit of a spicy fright, deep inside
    my belly. There are rare and few gems now, between the forest of greasy non-caloric crap-list.
    Yes, they are some good movies here and there, but very few of them, and I mean very few.
    I got older, I got greedy, I saw everything, I got served the silver plate versions of all the
    new pieces, so I guess that totally spoiled me. I would need to do a big master reset on my
    memory bank switch, so I could watch again a new movie, and feel amazed and satisfied
    once again. But it’s just my badly shaped indigestable profane crooked believe system.
    I jumped out from the main track, sorry because of this. I do know how to fly away, and
    to go deep with sometimes pretty empty philosophy. Your art, and your good willingness
    to share, is not respected enough, and I feel that a really few of them really give credits.
    But I do, and I want to ask you kindly, not to stop with this master machine of a sketchbook.
    Visiting we’ll be and thankful we’ll be all the time.
    Take care, be good and never stop sharing your art.
