I'll pizazz this OP up a little more here in a bit, but figured it was about time Craig Drake got his own thread. The guy keeps consistently releasing prints and original paintings, and I figured it'd be good for users to have a place to drool over him. Love him or hate him, talk about it here!

His latest original (from the Hero Complex show) is certainly worthy of some love:

I don't have anything from Craig yet, but I'm really liking this.

Love his stuff and currently have O-Ren framed up. I hope the thing is eventually made into a print and look forward to more of his work down the line.

What the hell; here are some of my O-Ren photos. They're already on the forum elsewhere, but I like the print and the photos :D

The Star Trek print was acquired as a matter of course to keep the collection complete and really grew on me.

The dedicated show ticked all the right boxes wrt BR and Metropolis. Then grabbed a UM Bride on the AP drop.

This McReady image looks great. Cant wait to see pics of the actual OG...

I snagged his Hanzo'd before and after set on the Hero Complex presale and have Oren and Beatrix reg in mg collection. The real question is... What is your Drake wish list for future projects?
Mine:
Nolan Batman series. ESP Anne Hathaway Catwoman
True Blood series. ESP Jessica and Sookie
Game of Thrones - Daenerys
Firefly - All the girls
Buffy - all the girls
Matrix series - Trinity - come to think of it why isn't there more fan art for these films?
Lost - Kate
Sad but true but I'd love to see his take on Disney princesses.
