Gorgeous artwork there, funny how these "amateurs" can capture the essence of Bond in ways Babz can only dream of.

That's what happens when you have people making these films who put Bond beneath them. When searching for Bond artwork to post here, I've come across some really great fan poster art for Craig's Bond. Here's one for Casino Royale:

While it wouldn't make his Bond films any more enjoyable, it does show how uninspired the marketing has even become. But I'll save my ranting for another thread because this one should be cheerful. :happy spin:

Here is a Turkish paperback cover artwork for A View To A Kill.

I agree, I've seen some rather inspired "amateur" posters for the Craig films, far more intriguing than the "official" shlock, but as you say this is not the venue to discuss that, we'll have to meet up in another thread and chat.

Some excellent artwork there, too bad his Cragginess is featured so prominently in the second one.

I was a bit hesitant to post the artwork because of that, but it's not the first time I've posted great Bond tribute art that has sadly featured Craig in it. I usually try to avoid it for obvious reasons, but the tribute piece above is just so fantastic I decided post it here regardless.

That brings back memories. I used to read Crash, back when I had my trusty ZX Spectrum.

No I get it Saint, into every great piece of Bond art a little Craig must fall, keep it up I'm enjoying it, Craig and all!
