Blast from the past

This is a personal project I did a few years back... and also one of the finest films  ever made. Without a doubt it's in my top five (it's at this point Pam will start laughing at me for even having a 'top 5').

The artwork was an experiment using the brush tool in Illustrator. It was drawn freehand over a photo scan of the demon and coloured up as I saw fit (seeing as the film is Black and White). I think it's a really good piece and one that I'm very proud of.

I like the idea of creating some 'homage' style posters for some of the old movies I enjoy... hmm... I feel a project coming on! On that note.. message to Dave Higgins- How do you fancy taking a crack at producing a set of posters for films, maybe we could get enough together to put a collaborative book out?.. If you know anyone else who'd be interested in doing it, let me know! Maybe some of your college buddies can help out? All they have to do is produce the artwork (illustrative/typographic/photographic) and I can design the book.

Hi Shane
Sounds like a very do able project. So you couldignore the email I sent out to you yesterday, if you want, I hadn't read this part of the blog then. Or what the hell we could just crack on with both the ideas. Anyway I'm up for this one.
