Here is the 5th poster preview from the 10 MOVIE and TV posters I designed for Fan Expo in Toronto, Sept 3-6 2015.

This is a conceptual "Jurassic Park" piece I did which has 3 ideas I tried to convey:

1.  A baby dinosaur coming out of its egg.
2.  The eye of the dinosaur is the amber which holds the mosquito.
3.  The overall shape of the dinosaur crack is the same shape as the remote island of Isla Nublar with an approaching helicopter just below it.

Enjoy!
