  1. Wow, these are beautiful, Dino! Esp. love the pop-art inspiration and posters. MSD is my fave play.

  2. Brilliant! I’ve never gone to BOTB but these drawings have won me over. You should send them to the advertisers and see if they use them for promo! You could get some more commissions. Love love love your style! <3
