    Oh wow this is so incredible, both the story and the artwork. I mean, just goes beyond incredible, that level of detail...
    Thanks SickleClaw. Glad you enjoyed it.
    Can you tell I'm somewhat partial to the Jaws poster?

    Is this Mark Raats? I was just looking at your artwork online. COMPLETELY STUNNING work, my friend. You are the heir apparent to Drew Struzan as far as I'm concerned. Well done! I wish movie one sheets were still the chief venue for true artwork like yours - as they were in the seventies and eighties. But Photoshop. Perhaps it will be the case again. If so, I'm sure you'll be very busy indeed! I'm not knocking Photoshop or digital painting software - since as a photographer and graphic designer who works almost exclusively in it, I haven't room to be too critical, but I always am more "drawn" in when I view physically crafted art as there will never be a more beautiful, pure visual expression of imagery - with thousands of years of cultural history to attest to it.

    As to the whereabouts of the Jaws painting. Roger is mystified and would like to have it back. It is, after all, his property legally - as its creator - who never gave it away to anyone. I'm sure someone has it out there, and most likely will never reveal the fact publicly.

    I recently had a conversation with the model who posed for the swimmer for Roger. I told her if there was ever a "Mona Lisa" of movie posters, I'd be hard pressed to find any other to claim that title. She laughed and said she has virtually never been recognized for it, and it was not something she ever considered very significant. Naturally, I differed. She signed by original Jaws one-sheet in the same gold marker that Roger has done previously - making it the only Jaws poster on earth signed by the both of them.

    Nice to meet you. Keep up the truly amazing work! I hope you get lots of it!
    Best, Erik

    PS: As a shark fan myself, I've been thrilled to do the covers for Steve Alten's MEG series for over a decade. Now WB is releasing a major motion picture based on it called "The Meg" starring Jason Statham - the trailer just came out online a few days ago. Though I was not considered for the poster by Warner Bros, they did use my customized title graphic, so I'm a little stoked about that. Here are some of my MEG covers and other books... No candle to your work. but for what its worth...

    Saw the trailer for the movie MEG in front of Deadpool 2. Looks like it will be a fun movie, especially with Jason Stathom.

    Yes, it does look like a fun summer chomp. I hope it does well at the Box Office, for Steve's sake (MEG author).

    Apologies for briefly hijacking your thread Erik.

    I was commissioned to do a private drawing for a collector and I have also spent the past two weeks with Richard which has been fantastic.
    Interestingly, we ended up in the middle of the ocean on a boat called "Great White" which I guess could have ended badly but fortunately time was not spent watching yellow barrels popping up in the surf, we drank and simply compared scars
