Continuing my Batman noir poster series with this piece for The Dark Knight Rises. Even at our lowest points we have the strength to pick ourselves back up
I created this print based on Stephen Kings Carrie, I didn’t want my take to mimic any of the Hollywood movies that had done Carrie previously or create an alt poster for the new movie, I wanted to create something based on the book.
I purposely aimed at this treatment the manic brush shapes echoing the characters anger behind that calm stare, I even chose to impose the entire book word for word onto the piece after reading it again as part of my research.
The print is available on a very limited run at LTD Gallery so be sure to check it out here
I had a great opportunity to work with Hero Complex Gallery for their tribute to Jaws called Smile You Son of a Bitch. Named after the line that Roy Scheder’s Brody says in the iconic film, the show is a special collaboration with artist Craig Drake and PangeaSeed, an organization dedicated to the preservation of sharks!
The print is available on a limited basis, with only 30 to be printed so get there while they’re still biting here
Well I had this little idea that Cap’s shield could double as the C for Captain America and so I came up with this little alternative poster for fun. I’m actually excited to see the film after the trailer dropped this week, the Winter Soldier looks like a real badass and the action looks amazing, Roll on 2014 I say.
So I got the chance to be apart of another amazing Poster Posse project by Blurppy.com and this time we tackled Keanu Reeves’s 47 Ronin
So this week we all bid farewell to Breaking Bad and like so many people out there I wasn’t ready to say good by to the late great Heisenberg, so in ode to his greatness and of his iconic product I produced this mini meth poster set to chart the characters journey.
For this print I wanted to create a piece that you could hang either way round and change around as you argue with friends who would win in a fight Batman or Superman. The piece contrasts the two heroes against Gotham and Metropolis as well as hinting on their personalities being night and day apart .
So there you have a dual poster that should please any Batman or Superman fan
Oh and I thought I’d display it in both orientations so you don’t hurt your neck
The Hairy Face of Hollywood is an ever-growing collection of portraits from popular culture with a noticeable difference.

This is my noir take on a poster for Thor The Dark World
After watching the first trailer for Rush I was in love with the nostalgia of the golden age of motor racing, the art of this period had a very distinctive look and I wanted to pay homage to this in my poster.
I did a lot of research so my work would look of the era and could happily sit side by side with vintage motor racing posters, this was definitely a passion project as when you have a biopic and it is of a particular period in history you want to reflect that. I hope I’ve done it justice.
So there you have it My alternative Rush movie poster.
I set myself a little task to create a movie based alphabet of iconic films but I wanted to start and complete the project in one day, from choosing the films to creating the final artwork.
With so many great movies to choose from it was hard choice hence why I’m labelling this project vol:1 because I know I’d like to go back and do vol:2 someday and maybe only give myself half a day.
There you have it Project 26, 26 letter, 26 movies and 12 hours.
Just something I cooked up an alt poster for Oldboy, I wanted to take a little extra time and actually have a count for each one of the days over the 20 year period that was spent in that one room cell. so we should have a total of 7,300 strikes if my math has served me correctly.
Cant wait to see what Spike Lee with such a classic as Oldboy
I was asked recently to join a collective of artists by @blurppy to produce our vision for the movie Pacific Rim. The idea behind this set is how the culture would have changed in this universe after living with monsters and giant robots for over a decade.
The official one sheet for Farah Goes Bang the debut feature by Meera Menon and Laura Goode which premièring at the Tribeca Film Festival 2013 and won the Inaugural Nora Ephron Prize.
A great piece to work on with a talented set of clients.
My alternative take on the Gravity film poster
Well this is something i dreamt up literally, its not often I remember my dreams but this was so vivid I raced for my sketch book once I woke up, so this is my take on Star Trek Into Darkness movie poster. A big thank you to my subconscious, just because your sleeping doesn’t mean your not working.
My take on the Friday the 13th Movie poster, I wanted to give the poster a dated look that harked back at when the original film was made, an era i believe really nailed the horror movie genre. Anyway i hope you like it.
My alternative take on a poster for Rear Window. Hitchcock films are the easiest and hardest movies I find to re-imagine a poster for, they always have such striking visual and ideas within the film that you can’t help but be inspired but it gets hard when you dont want to be too obvious in your take, I’m hoping I’ve done the film some justice.
“Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” this quote from Batman Begins is one of the many reason why i fell in love with the film. Over the years I’ve played with many ideas for an alternative movie poster to the the film but its only today that I’ve finally sat down and put pen to paper.
My aim was to capture the moment where Bruce’s journey would begin onto the path of Batman.
Been watching the Kick Ass 2 redband trailer the last two days on loop, I cant wait to watch it with so many interesting new characters and any excuse to say The MotherFucker!
This is my take on the movie poster I hope you guys like it.
and watch this space it’ll be available to own in the new shop which is launching very soon
An alternative look at The Wolverine movie poster which is due to release this summer.
I wanted the poster to tie into the Japanese theme/location of the story without it being too cliché and it has been a while since i’ve produced a digital painting so i was eager to give the piece a natural treatment.
But I couldn’t choose between the colour or black and white version, which do you prefer?
I was commissioned to create an alternative poster for the soon to be released film ‘Spring Breakers’ staring James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine and Ashley Benson
My aim was to contrast the fun of spring break with the seedy underbelly of what goes on behind closed doors without bashing it over the users head.
A film by Harmony Korine releasing April 15 2013
Tick tick tick approaching ever close to the release of iron man 3 and with the super bowl trailer still fresh in out minds it was time for an alternative Iron Man 3 movie poster
The man of steel poster set charts the journey young Clark makes from childhood to adulthood using poignant quotes from the 2013 movie.
I’ve been toying with idea for a while, it feels great to final get it down on paper.
So its 1am and your find yourself not sleeping again even though you have to be up in only a matter of hours. So what do you do? Some may count sheep some may even have a warm class of milk, which is where this idea came from when I found myself making shapes with the ring stain on my desk.
All i can say is thank god I don’t use coasters
A deck of queens pinups were based on Robyn Hunt, Sian Sayer, Nina Evans and Misa Campo, thank you all for being such great sports.

Oh and here is a version 2, I’m thinking custom T-shirt
Like everyone else I’m also counting down the days until release, so I thought I’d help pass the time by creating a minimalist poster for TDKR
