ChetArt in “Ender’s Game” set

Yesterday I stumbled across a Facebook post from Tor Books about an Ender’s Game blog hosted by the producers of the film. Above is a shot from the blog showing the set design of Ender’s room. Despite the small photo, I can see they’ve included at least 4 of my images from 6 they purchased for use in the set design.  Ender’s Game IMDb Link
