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.
You can see more posters from the other talented artists here and here

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.

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.

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

Playing toy soliders is always fun especially when the lawn is freshly cut.

Put down my pencil for my paint brush tonight, theres something wonderful about not knowing where the brush will take when you pick it, no matter how clear the picture is in your head.
