Let's all go to the lobby!

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.
'Fight Club'
10" by 15", ink and digital on paper
'The Fountain'
15.5" by 21.5", mixed media on paper
The line work for the Amelie piece
12" by 21.5", mixed media on paper
'True Romance' (B&W)
11" by 15", acrylic on paper

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!
Take care!

Yay Nimit! My now fellow Sheridan Alumni brethren!

Can you say awesome?

The fact that you did a poster for The Fountain is amazing. I'm glad I'm not the only around who thoroughly enjoys it.

I'm so glad to hear that you like that movie too!! I swear there are like maybe only 3 other people I know, who like that movie.

I've never seen True Romance, but the other three are like my 3 FAVOURITE movies of all time forever and infinity.

I think I like your fight club the best.

I LOVE the Fountain to death though, as a movie, I'm a girl and it makes me cry every time I watch it. Have you read the graphic novel of it? the art is mind bogglingly amazing, won a few awards I think. Was in applied arts at least once too.
