Okay, so I get a little ocd with my iTunes library, but all of the different art for the 6 released albums made me grumpy…so I fixed them! I wanted something simple, and luckily the names of the movies are iconic on their own, so I didn’t need to include the logo as well. 

They’re all hi-res pngs, so please feel free to drag and use them for your own libraries. Credit for online sharing is always appreciated =]
