    I approve! Some constructive criticism (if this is appropriate, of course: You could cut "mere" for brevity. Short is sweet, especially on posters.

    Great work, Oleg. I really enjoy your work. :)

    Switch the diskette for a CD ROM or a thumb drive or something more up to date for the computer example.

    Oleg, something more modern for the "Hacker" part would work better. What about a mouse or a keyboard or as has been suggested, a CD? Perhaps a thumb drive?

    Otherwise, great poster.

    I like the idea of a mouse instead of a diskette. I'm also not so sure about the "mere things" part... just doesn't feel right to me. Maybe something like "objects don't cause crime"

    Update the hacker bit and it'll be perfect.

    I love your work Oleg! Keep up the good work!

    I like it. You might want to consider doing a moden one with up to date computer hardware as suggested and a newer carry gun like an auto or snubby.

    This is excellent, Oleg.

    Updating the diskette is unnecessary; the idea is to transmit the image of a computer-related accessory, and for the photographic space quality it is really good. Any smaller, and the top of the poster would feel cramped. Great job.

    I agree, "objects don't cause crime" reads better, IMO.

    Great art, great concept!

    Another vote for "Objects don't cause crime"

    Diskette is fine. Instantly recognizable. Mouse would be fine, too. Thumb drive would not be fine: Lots of people don't use them, and would not recognize it.

    What does a lighter have to do with a hacker?

    Just kidding, but I think the disk was more recognizable...

    This image was done for a Canadian magazine, hence the use of a Webley.

    mcook8 -- I can't see any difference between my spelling and yours. Is something wrong with that word?

    Very Nice

    Wonder what that would look like with a cordless mouse instead of the thumb drive.

    It's a different level of obvious.

    Good poster, Oleg.

    Use a Nagant revolver, and then you could write something about being a Russian revolutionary!

    I don't have a cordless mouse on hand. Could try with a regular one and retouch the cord or have it trail off the edge...but not tonight. Need sleep. Need to do paid work.
