Excellent! Getting it scanned would be awesome. By the way, are you the guy who emailed me about it, or did you manage to buy it off that guy already? haha

I'd also be very interested in a scan of this poster.. If Chaosman is not willing to share, does anyone know who else might have this? Surely they printed more than one back in the day

I almost started to cry when I saw this, and there STILL isn't a scan of it. DARN DARN its beautiful.

edit: I PMed him D:
edit edit: I'd pay for the scan alone. Everybody throw something into a hat and ask CHAOSMAN with a lot of pretty pweases if he scans it for 100 bucks?

It's a nice thought, but dicey copyright-wise. Just having the poster scanned is in a grey area (is it or is it not fair use?); receiving payment for having done so, even it's just to break even, is a definite tilt toward the dark side.

Awaiting the poster, I had a project of my own. I received a gift certificate that I could use for various purposes. One was getting a picture painted on canvas. The rest wasn't very useful, so Grim Fandango on canvas it had to be! Here's the result. The first picture is the canvas (30x40cm) on the table by daylight, the second is the canvas hanging up on the wall. I just took the second pictre and because the light isn't very good, I had to use the flash on my cellphone when taking the picture, which causes the picture to come out a bit nasty, but whatever.

I'm willing to pool in on the scan part too, if it is scanned with a high resolution that is. If we can't get it proffesionally reprinted from the scan, then it's useless.

I really like the poster though, all the details making it look like a movie; fantastic!

Looks pretty good (except for it being a big, shiny panel on the shirt but I expect a screen print costs). But wouldn't Olivia be more appropriate? If you could find/create a high-resolution image of her, that is.

27x40 inch, or cm? In the case of this being in cm, I'd be a bit disappointed because I figured it would be bigger.. nonetheless, I'm still looking forward to this getting scanned
