Sign Painters, Documentary & Book About Sign Painting in America

I’m looking forward to this. Cartoonists, designers, and many more obsess over lettering, but not like these folks.

DEATH RATTLE (UPDATED)  This is the final.

Sam just listed this thing as a new print, and whoa nellie. If you’re not already deep into Sam’s work, or Once Upon A Time in the West, this is a great reason to bellyflop into one or both.

The Great Showdowns vs. Silhouettes from Popular Culture

Titan Books has just released two perfect little square books for fans of pop culture and movie art:

The Great Showdowns by Scott C

Scott C offers up some of Hollywood’s greatest confrontations in the silly cheerful way that only Scott C can. I love Scott’s watercolour recreations of my favourite movies (a Back to the Future original hangs on my wall) so I’ve been looking forward to this book version of his popular Great Showdowns website.

Silhouettes from Popular Culture by Olly Moss

Olly is the master of the a-ha moment — those deceptively simple tweaks to familiar images that make you wish you thought of them first. I first shared some of Olly’s work when he was still a student, so it’s great to see his rise to fame as a sought-after designer for movie posters.

A friend and I had great fun sitting down with both of these books and trying to identify the movies and characters on every single page.

The Dark Crystal is still one of my favorite movies ever. I love this take on the Gelfling, Jen, by Chuck Groenink.

My painting for Galley Nucleus’ upcoming Jim Henson tribute show. It is of course Jen from The Dark Crystal, a film that made a huge impact on me when I was just a wee one. After I saw it on tv at my grandma’s house  on a weekend in 1994 I drew nothing but strange monsters and weird beings and maps of the lands they lived in for months.

I have a bit of a hate-on for the torrent of minimalist movie posters that seems to have become a tired trend over the last year or two, especially when done poorly, but these smartly designed and illustrated Hitchcock tributes are another story.

My take on the original Star Wars Trilogy. Officially-licensed, limited edition 24x36” screen-printed posters available through Mondo Tees on Monday 20th December. A small number of signed artist-proofs will be available from me on Wednesday 23rd December.

I pronounce Olly Moss: KING of movie posters!

Murder by Death Opening Titles

How did I forget about the Charles Addams-drawn opening title sequence for Neil Simon’s Murder By Death?

Happy Halloween!
