This is an open letter to all the folks in various fan groups, fan blogs, fandoms anywhere (especially on Tumblr, Facebook, Reddit, Pinterest, Instagram … hell, just about any social network out there):
I think it’s wonderful that you value art, and the services that artists provide. But you…
Usually I don’t reblog, but Shayne from Heisenberg Chronicles made a good point here. This deserves a reblog!
Important Public Announcement
Hello my dear followers. I have very important news to announce.
First of all, sometime in the next 24 hours I will remove the Breaking Bad posters from Society6 and Redbubble and I will also remove the links from Posterology. This will happen because I was approached by Sony Entertainment in this matter, who is also the owner of Breaking Bad copyrights.
Please don’t be upset or sad because I’m not. I was made a promise that Sony is going to work out a way to use my artworks in an official way, which - I think - would be the best solution for all parties, including you, the Breaking Bad fans.
When I started this project, I would have never believed that it would go this far and YOU had a huge part in that. I cannot say “THANK YOU” enough times for your support and love, you’re all incredible people! You and this project have changed the course of my life.
Now I place my confidence in Sony’s team to move forward and I continue to celebrate the best TV show in the world!

Survey results, progress and plans
As you may remember last week I had a small survey linked on Posterology. I wanted to know which TV shows are your favorites and what you would like to see to get the Posterology treatment. See the results below:
Game of Thrones (24%) got almost double the votes as the next candidate, House of Cards (13%), which is followed by The Walking Dead (11%) and True Detective (10%). I guess it’s decided which TV shows will appear here on Posterology in the near future but I allow myself the freedom to choose the order of appearance.
So Hannibal is in the making. I have finished the posters for the 2nd and 3rd episodes of Season 1, you can expect to see them very soon.
For a while now, I’ve been thinking very hard on the concept of the posters for House of Cards. First I wanted to make season posters but I may have found a viable concept to make posters for every episode as well. I really like that show, most probably it will follow Hannibal.
I started watching Game of Thrones last week but I still have to catch up three seasons. It’s a great and complex show and it will take some time until I can come up with a concept for it.
I have a problem with The Walking Dead though: I don’t like zombies in general, sorry about that. If it had landed on the first place of this survey, I would have stopped watching GoT immediatly and would have started TWD instead. But it didn’t. I will still keep it in mind, so don’t give it up.
There is a big hype around True Detective but I haven’t seen an episode yet. Which is only a matter of time because two of my favorite actors are playing the main roles, so I grant a poster series for True Detective :)
I hope you don’t mind that I am trying to come up for a different design concept for each show, I don’t want to copy my Breaking Bad series endlessly. This is a very time consuming procedure and I need your patience but in the and your patience will be rewarded :)
Until then thank you for all the new followers, for everyone who shows his or her support by purchasing posters from Society6 and Redbubble. Thank you for all the questions, suggestions, likes, reblogs, articles, interviews etc. You’re the best!
Watch out people, the first Hannibal poster is coming in a few minutes. Also I will close the voting about your favorite shows. Hurry up!
Tell me what you want!
On Friday I will post the first poster for Hannibal, which is one of my current favorite shows but I also want to know WHICH YOUR FAVORITE SHOWS ARE? Click here to find a little survey and tell me.
Basically the big question is:
I will close the survey after the first Hannibal poster.
I am the one who can’t believe what’s happening right now
Posterology hit the 10.000 followers mark from 1.500 in less than a week. Congratulations to rodthe17 from Portugal for being the 10.000th follower!
I have to admit that the past one week has been crazy and the reason is that Posterology got intense publicity on sites like Buzzfeed, Gizmodo, Vanity Fair, Uproxx, Flavorwire and the Huffington Post just to name a few. Then it spread like a wildfire… I am stunned and speechless by the overwhelming love and support that I get from Breaking Bad fans. It’s incredible! You rock!
People contacted me from all over the world to congratulate for the poster series. I would have never thought that it would be a BIG success! Again I have to thank to Shayne from Heisenbergchronicles, he had a big part in this as the first promoter of Posterology.
But it’s time to move on and start from scratch, this time with my current favorite thriller TV series, everybody’s favorite cannibal: Hannibal. Season 2 starts in 3 days so I think that in 3 days I will post the first poster for the show.
Keep it real until then YO!
