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]

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!
