Yes, that'd be me!

After a long few months of cancellations, rescheduling, office moves, a failed attempt (2 questions short of passing), I finally passed the exam today - getting 25/25.

In my previous post, I focused on artist Syd Mead, and it inspired me to have a go at doing my own sci-fi layout.  For people who don't know what a 'layout' is - it is the background image used in animation.
