Happy Birthday, Roy Batty!

Today is the day that Nexus 6 combat model Roy Batty comes to "life".  Come to think of it, he was a bit batty, but he was all Roy! Below is a print I created for a Movie art exhibition a few years ago. And here is an old post about when I actually got to meet the man himself!
