Tribute by Retronator Tribute by Retronator
This is my tribute to many great things that crossed my life and left a mark. It was initially created as a cover of a magazine in 2005 and adapted into a poster a month later. However, there was a lot of space left at the time so in the last couple of months I slowly added in some more recent pieces of inspiration.

A special webpage will be prepared with WIP images, timelapses and extra stuff. You can find me on Facebook: [link] or Tumblr: [link] to be the first to know about it.

EDIT: Now live here: [link]

Hey I want to buy this poster but it is not available for purchase on Society 6. Can you tell me how I can buy this please? My boyfriend really wants it for Xmas. Thank you!

We already sorted this out through email, but if anyone else will have this question in the future, here's my answer:

I'm sorry to say this, but Tribute poster is no longer available from my shop. However, I do not mind if you take the image to your local printer and make yourself an unofficial (strictly not for sale) print. This is as much as I can do (hint: use nearest neighbors filter when upscaling to poster size).

Have great holidays!
