Sometimes I feel like i'm doing a lot of tidying up when I update the blog... I don't know, maybe I'm just weird like that. Last semester I wanted to do something that was fun and would make me happy, so I wanted to illustrate movie poster (or interpretations at least), of some of my favourite movies. It started out, with me choosing the movies around a loose theme of film noir...but then I realized i'm just a big fat romantic at heart, so I did love stories from there on out. I ended up doing Fight Club, The Fountain, Amelie, and True Romance.

My original intention was to work up the posters to function as actual movie posters with typography, but Thom suggested that we focus the pieces more towards the actual illustration...and i'm glad we did. It helped work out a process for developing concepts. If you've seen any of these movies (you should if you haven't!) let me know what you think of the pieces!
