Yikes, it has been awhile since my last post. How about I make amends by offering up not one, but two new posters.
I just recently wrapped up a self-initiated project to celebrate the release of House of Cards - Season 2 on Netflix. I am a huge fan of the series and thought it deserved its own poster to kick off the new season. It was featured as an exclusive release on Blurppy.com where I outlined some of the background behind the project and a few of the struggles I encountered. I highly recommend heading over Blurppy to read the entire post here.
I promised two new posters, and this second one is pretty sweet. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am a member of the Poster Posse. We are a group of artists in love with making movie posters, brought together by Don Thompson of Blurppy.com. Our most recent Posse project was to design a poster for the soon to be released X-Men: Days Of Future Past. This particular film marks the return of the original director of X-Men and X-Men 2, Bryan Singer. Returning with him is pretty much every cast member from all the past X-Men films including the most recent X-Men: First Class.
I saw this Posse project as an opportunity to tackle one of my favorite characters, Wolverine. I have been playing with a new visual style that I am calling "digital organic." What I try to do is create a likeness using mostly hard angles and a few well placed curves. My inspiration being the work of Tom Whalen and a handful of other artists who work in a simple, but smart illustrative style. I can only hope I did Hugh Jackman, the actor that plays Wolverine, proud.
The artists of the Poster Posse really did some outstanding work with these X-Men posters. But, if you won't take my word for it, how about the word of the director himself, Bryan Singer. He recently tweeted an image of all the X-Men tribute poster by the Posse. Mr. Singer honored us by hanging prints of our work in his studio edit suite for inspiration during final film edits.
So, do your eyes a favor and check out the rest of the Posse's exceptional designs on Blurppy. You can catch Phase One of our Poster Posse project here. And you can see my work featured in Phase Two here.
Go and enjoy.
