For the Tong MD, I absolutely love the concept. The Möbius strip concept, two sides of the same person, mysteries of identity throughout the film, really fits the themes. I just don't think the likenesses are there. If I didn't know it was for MD I wouldn't think it was Naomi Watts and I certainly wouldn't think it was Laura Harring behind her.

Kind of wish that the Ansin poster had included Betty (nee Bettie Page) since half the fun of the comics was Dave Stevens drawing her in skimpy outfits.

Really? I've never seen the movie and had no idea she was in it, yet I instantly recognized her on this print.

Ditto. Excellent Naomi Watts likeness imo.

Really cool poster, and I think he did a great job with the Watts likeness. The Bosma is still where it's at for me, though.

Some cool prints. The Rocketeer is nice - just looks a little too much like a ballet dancer. It's the first thing that came to mind and I can't unsee it now.

Ansin and Ken do this a lot. Crank out a few mediocre posters and everyone is like zomg what happened they aren't good anymore. Then they put out something like this and everyone's like zomg I knew they'd be back I always had faith zomgiso

Someone pointed out that if he was lifting off straight up, that's the position you would be in to spin.
