Found your site after spotting the article on the BBC news front page of all places! Have long been a fan and collector of proper "painted" posters, with Graham Humphreys being a particular favourite (there's a great recent interview with him at http://www.filmonpaper.com/blog/an-interview-with-graham-humphreys)
Whilst some photo-based posters can look good, they're just not "art" - I wouldn't want them framed on my wall, unlike, for example, the UK quad for Deep Space painted by Graham which currently hangs in my hall! And of course I'll be getting the "Hobo" poster too for one of my 1-sheet sized frames!
