Nah....I don't care about the difficulty securing something, just being a bitch about another artist I dig going down the movie poster route.

guy is incredibly well established in many other facets of the illustration industry and has been for years. him doing a movie poster isn't 'going down the road' as much as it is 'stopping for gas'

Ruas is of my favorite artists. I am very interested to see a screen printed piece from him. I'm also curious if he will approach the piece any differently with separations in mind.

Disagree. But, he's certainly up there in my book, and I have Jean on a big old pedestal... I'll post up some cool Ruas stuff when I get home.

Oh god, I feel excitement and trepidation all at the same time. You know you can just take the day off and return home now, right?
