My Totoro is flattening, I will buy frames for my Leon and Spiderhands tomorrow, and the Taxi piece will be on it's way when Hero Complex Gallery is ready to ship Drake's Jen Yu print.

You should work something out with Bottleneck Gallery for the "When the lights go out" show... having the Totoro and Monsters Inc. in mind, I think you would be perfect for the show.
I'm working on a piece for the Bottleneck show, but not sure if I'll actually finish in time. They will have the print for sale at some point though, even if it's just an online drop.

I work entirely in Illustrator for my print work. I have considered Photoshop for future work only to achieve certain textures, but haven't made that jump yet. One of the reasons i like working in Illustrator is it allows me to scale and rescale elements in my work without losing any resolution.

granted, I'm still learning Photoshop, but, i think this is possible but making elements "smart objects" and rendering them. I've worked on a few projects and have used that. you can still add "smart" filters and effects too. again, still learning. thanks, Bruce!

If the smart objects are not originally vector objects you will still lose resolution if you scale them up.

You have not missed any AP releases. I have sold zero AP prints to date. They will go on sale some time in the future when I have the time and the appropriate shipping materials for safe transport. I will likely announce all AP sales here and through Twitter (bruceyan). :)
