Another piece of work for Cult Cinema Sunday – this time to produce posters for two of the films to be shown on the evening along with working on a collaborative poster to promote the evening itself. Information about the event can be found here.
The collaboration element was really interesting – I was working alongside recent illustration graduate and former student of mine, James Fenwick (go check out more of his work here). We met up a few times and thrashed out some ideas for the overall design of the poster together before departing and working on our own elements individually. James took the inside characters and the logo whilst I handled the outside characters and put the final thing together.
Here are some of my stages of development and character explorations:
And the final poster artwork:
Now onto the actual poster prints for the films themselves! I’ll be working on one of my all time favourite films – The Thing, as well as The Shining, whilst James will be producing poster prints for Evil Dead II and A Nightmare on Elm Street…
