  • Tribute

    This is my tribute to many great things that crossed my life and left a mark.
  • History

    This artwork was initially created as a cover of Joker magazine in 2005 and adapted into a poster a month later. However, there was a lot of unused space left due to time constraints.
  • June 2005 Joker Magazine cover
  • July 2005 Joker Magazine poster
  • My life then took a turn away from drawing as I focused on programming. After graduating from computer science in September 2011 I decided to return to this piece. In the following couple of months I slowly added in my more recent sources of inspiration to produce the completed Tribute poster.
  • Special Edition Print

    I had a local printer create a special print for me on canvas. It turned out so great I decided to run a little special edition, signed and numbered, color corrected to perfectly match the digital version.
  • Tribute Pixel Art Poster A2 (Special Edition) / $42.00
  • Society6 Print and Merchandise

    The more affordable version of the print is made available by Society6. In addition I made some skins and t-shirts to order for myself.
  • Tribute Art Print by Retronator / $20.00
