Dear all --

My sincerest apologies that I have not been able to respond to all the very kind words that have been posted on my most recent pieces and on my profile page. Managing my dA account has become something that I'm unable to do at the moment simply because of a critical lack of free time.... 

I will do my best to keep my gallery updated and hopefully I will be able to resume my correspondence with those good folk kind enough to spend the time to post comments in the not too distant future...

In the meantime, place feel free to check in with me on my Facebook page for frequent updated on current projects:

My profound thanks for your wonderful support and my humble apologies to every one again.

Kind regards
MARK

Hey Mark...just wanted to congratulate you on the amazing work you're doing. Being a kid of the 80s and being a fan of Struzan's classic movie posters your artwork is really a pump of fresh air into the genre and you are a master at your trade. Thanks for keeping the genre alive.
I invite you to check out my portfolio when you have the time: andreasrocha.deviantart.com

You certainly do. You have a great attitude and view on younger artists and the role experienced artists play in our lives.
