This is a man you'd only know if you were a true geek. I only got to know him from working on this client's shows. He's the grandfather/Santa Claus of developers.
For the show this year, the client decided to save money by not doing a traditional video screen. The question was, what would replace it? This guy, let's call him Father Code, has created really cool tshirts for the last 14 years of the show. I thought we should ask him if he'd want to create the banner. Longer story than I have the brains to tell, we did it.
It's 70 feet wide and 16 feet tall. And that's him signing his artwork.

I'm on my fifth round of caffeine, plus my very first Red Bull and none of it is touching how much I want to sleep!
