A couple of days ago, Mike Dooney alerted me to the existence of this piece of art:
I hadn't checked my blog's comments that day, so I had not yet seen this message:
It's my wish to present this homage to you and the Mirage Group as you all were a source of inspiration for me during my youth and as i continue in my career as an adult.
Mirage Group Illustration
Hope you enjoy it, and thank you for the past 25 years and for many to come!
Mr. Gale Benning
Executive Producer / Director/ Production Designer
I aksed Gale if it would be okay if I posted his drawing on this blog, and he agreed. I like it -- it's quite a good portrait of the Mirage bunch. I'm curious as to Gale's technique here -- was a light table involved, or was this freehand drawing? Or is it some kind of computer-aided drawing? However it was done, I dig it and I appreciate the sentiment. Thanks, Gale! -- PL
