I've finally finished this image that I've been working on for ages, and that I previewed previously with the image of Travis Bickle on a dodgem. Anyway, here it is in it's final incarnation, featuring a final tally 0f 50 movie references. The movies included were chosen for a number of reasons:
1) They had to be Movies that I genuinely liked (otherwise, how could I 'heart' them?).
2) The characters included had to be visually striking/unique in some way or another, because as much as anything this poster is a celebration of the visual richness of cinema.
3) They had to be mainstream enough not to alienate or confuse the viewer - I want people to see this image and immediately start recognising its occupants - it's supposed to be fun after all!
Anyway, I've had fun working on it, and hopefully it'll be a worthwhile addition to my portfolio. I've posted up a few details of the image as well, as when it's printed it comes out at about 40cm x 40cm.

I just finished a very nice job for Consumer Reports in the US. It involved 9 separate artworks for a special issue they're just about to publish on how to manage your finances in this topsy turvy mixed up world of financial mayhem. Here's a selection of three of the images - it was a pleasure to get to work on a sequence of images like this, because it gave me the chance to branch out a bit and try a few different approaches. Many thanks to Janice Hogan, who art directed and was great to work with...

Following on from the first image, here's another Night of the Hunter inspired piece featuring the creepy looking little girl. If you watch the film, look out for the bit where she's getting into the boat. It's maybe the most frustrating 10 seconds in the history of cinema.
