To celebrate the release of John Wick 3 here's my tribute piece of Keanu Reeves as “Baba Yaga”, the boogeyman and his ever loyal Pit Bull.
I was very excited to have been invited to participate in The Poster Posse tribute to all things Netflix. I chose to create posters for The Crown and The OA. Both shows are shinning examples of the diverse range of genres Netflix have on offer.
I created two variants for The OA. One that leans into the science fiction elements of the show and the other is a homage to Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij’s first film together, the brilliant Sound Of My Voice.
I find it amazing that Queen Elizabeth II was crowned a full year before the official coronation. This was a tradition used to show respect for the deceased previous monarch. With this in mind I decided to depict a scene where Winston Churchill has just received an invitation to the Coronation. The stamp used on the envelope showing Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.
Taking inspiration from classic grid design, originating from Switzerland, I have created minimal poster designs based on three movies from Christopher Nolan’s amazing filmography.
Although he already used non-linear story telling in his debut, Following, here Nolan uses a backwards plot structure to be the main hook of the movie.
I have used a spiral to represent not only the backwards timeline but also the degrading state of Leonard's (Guy Pearce) mind. The crosses symbolises the various events that Leonard deems important enough to tattoo all over his body.
Arguably the most emotional of Nolans films. The scene were Coop watches the videos from his children after escaping Miller's ocean planet is devastating.
This design suggests how, during space travel Coop and Brand's journey causes time to be inconsistent and undulate as they travel trough wormholes and near black holes.
My favourite of Nolans movies so far, or at least the most "re-watchable". First class action set pieces and mind-bending, intricately plotted story about that desperate need to just get "home".
Did the spinning top wobble or not?
Here I have used ever decreasing squares to symbolise Cobb and his team’s journey into the dreams within dreams. Each square is made up of hundreds of rectangles, showing the cityscape folding in on itself.
To celebrate Mothers Day I chose to paint one of Hollywoods most Bad Ass Mothers, the Alien Queen. I then thought I would mock it up into a couple of poster designs
