Tomer Hanuka was previously featured here. He is an Illustrator and a comics artist. He also apparently has a brother who is also a talented illustrator. I don't know who the older and it seems they get along but I wonder if they ever got in art wars growing up. "No you're better!" "No YOU'RE BETTER!!!!" "RRAAAHHHH!!!!" (start painting on each other's faces and giggling with brotherly love.) -His movie posters are pretty cool. You had me at Badlands and sealed the deal with Kubrick.

Most of our faithful fans know that we here at EK do what we do simply for the love of Art. And if you don't know, now you know. We originally started our site to share our love of Art with the world, but it grew quickly from a fun side project to an intense, all-consuming labor of love, and now, we have been blessed with this beautiful baby whose life it is our job to nurture and grow in a positive, impactful way. Our dream is to be a 90/10 company, meaning we donate 90% of our company's net income and keep only 10%. Take a moment to think about how retardedly difficult that sounds. There isn't a businessman in the world who'd invest in a business plan like that.
