    Lovely covers, @michael_gillette! What materials did you use? If you have the time to write a comment about it, it would be great to read about the process behind making these. :-)

    As for my favourites of these, I have to go with Thunderball, Live and Let Die and The Man with the Golden Gun.

    Hi T, I'm about to do an interview about them, I'll post back here...they were done in watercolour and then tinted digitally.

    Great, look forward to reading it!
    Thought the prints had the recognizable watercolour texture to it, but you never know these days, as so much can be replicated digitally.

    Will prints like these be available at a later occasion?

    They're all lovely. I just wanted to say that I don't usually like Bond covers with women on, because I feel they exclude women readers, but this series is so artistic (rather than HEY, LOOK, SEX!) that I don't feel that way.

    You only live twice, Dr. No and Live and let die - those are the most sttractive for me.

    Thanks, yeah, the modern world is full of fakery! Yes the prints will be available, but not at a discount.

    Thanks for the kind words. Yes I tried to make them respectful. I have two daughters now(they were born after I painted these) they ask why they are naked, so I'm relieved to hear that they don't come across a gratuitous!

    I like the You Only Live Twice print best.

    With that I recognize Dr. No as a higher level of iconic imagery and probably most recognizable to the larger audience. They're really all on the same level of excellence. Well done, @michael_gillette.

    I'm also considering the Elvis print for a friend. Another great concept there.

    Thanks for the kind words Richard, much appreciated! The Elvis piece is one of my favorite creations. Best wishes Michael

    They're all fantastic... I'd say:

    MR
    TMWTGG
    YOLT
    TB
    OP
    OHMSS
    CR
    FRWL

    These ones jumped at me just a little more than the other. But they're all beautiful.

    Do you have a top three or five from your own work?

    Dammit. I really can't choose. They're all absolutely incredible.
    I thought I could help by naming my least favourite, but had trouble even trying to judge that given how incredible they all are.
