Tombstone is the greatest western ever made. Hands down. End of discussion. It’s a crime that Val Kilmer wasn’t even nominated for an academy award for his portrayal of Doc Holliday. Both him, and Kurt Russel as Wyatt Earp, are at top of their games in this film. It’s gritty, it’s powerful, it’ll literally make you stand up and cheer.
There’s certain movies than can always bring you back to a very specific point in your life. Breakfast Club is one of them for me. Early 20s, not much direction, going out late with my friends, and every night I’d crash on my buddy’s couch and throw in Breakfast Club on VHS.
This is my ode to the school of learn-ed wizards that is Hogwarts. I wanted this poster to feel like an aging tapestry or flag, one perhaps that would be hung form the walls of a biology room. The images are the type that would be found in a environmental journal or field guide around the turn of the last century. The scientific practicality of the sketches is a nice juxtaposition to the world of magic and mystery that these animals represent.
This was a poster request from my daughter. Being an 80’s child, I’d missed the Pokemon craze. To my daughter though, this was her world. Now, Pokemon was around long before she was born, but to a child, anything that came before you were born was ancient. Pokemon, the Renaissance, cave paintings, you can lump them all in together.
Red Dwarf had a huge comedic influence on my life. Probably more than it should have… definitely more than it should have. Frankly, anybody that doesn’t like Red Dwarf is just a big Smeg Head in my book. I remember stumbling upon the very first episode of Red Dwarf entirely by accident.
This poster is in honor of my top 4 geeky loves, probably in that order – Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Dr. Who & Harry Potter. I love minimalist posters, and I was trying to get to the essence of each group. What one symbol could I use to represent each universe? The symbols for Lord of the Rings and Dr. Who were the most obvious, although it was trickier than I thought to create a ring when I didn’t want to use any shading in the symbol to define it’s shape.
All these years later, and Bloodsport is still one of my favorite movies. This was early Van Damme, when the splits weren’t yet so creepy and his dialogue delivery was always an adventure. It was constantly on basic cable when I was growing up, so I can tell you every ridiculous line by heart.
