Hey, sorry if you felt this way. I get really nervous and flustered at signings. I tried to talk to a lot of people yesterday but for the most part they seemed very quiet. Anyway, I apologise if you felt slighted by anything I did and I can assure you it was totally unintentional and no harm was meant.
Its a two way street on communication. If the artist was quiet then go ahead and ask him something, engage him. They are not there to entertain you with a stand up session or to constantly provide witty anecdotes about the industry. If he slighted you by being arrogant or rude that's a different story, but witty banter at an artist signing is not a prerequisite...

And now, back to the art. This poster is simply amazing, reductive brilliance. Olly Moss at his best. Bravo!

I want it.

Who waited in line 5 hrs and why? I was there at 6:30 and I bought the gorgeous Mr. Smith print and brought my Dark Knight print and Olly very graciously signed it. I do wish I had more cash though cause I wanted the Looper print as well as the Dredd, and Creature from the Black Lagoon. Was Thrilled to get the Mr. Smith print though cause its one of my fav movies.

Perfect image for a classic movie. Very clever indeed.

Did anyone get Olly to do his Jimmy Stewart impresson at the signing?

Met Olly at the Simpsons night and he was down to earth, talkative and a bloodly good bloke :clap:
Print looks great!

I met Olly @ Paper Cuts. He pulled me & a friend out of the line & brought us in the back door prior to opening. Yes, there's a back story that's not important. The point is that both my friend & I had the distinct impression that Olly did this much to the shagrin of Jensen.

Got enough Olly to start a full Olly wall, LOTR, MR. Smith, Princess Mononoke, Adventure Time Finn, Dark Knight.
