Mark Morris at Visual Imagination hands down for me. The attention to detail along with the airbrush work, design and fades are all bad azz.

Plus, he is such a grounded guy and great person....absolute pleasure to work with...five stars in my book in every category.

The onter one of my favorites is the original graphics on the 47 Apache War Party. Unreal and if i'm not mistaken it was done long before plotters were used. I cant imagine the hours involved. I had some info on the painter but, again lol, cant find it.
Gail Paik? She did great work back in the day.
