Lindisfarne II

Final project for the first term of third year. I created and screen printed a movie poster for Drive. Again it would be for The Alamo Drafthouse,  a cinema that re-screens films. I'm hoping to get a run of at least three different movie posters for The Alamo over this third year. 

This design is more literal compared to the previous poster I created for Donnie Darko, however I feel its quite successful. Each panel // square // rectangle represents an aspect or element of the main character. Unfortunately the text at the bottom didn't come out well on any of the prints, but still, there is always something to learn from. 

You should go see this film, its my film for 2011.

Early In The Morning

For my third project this term, I created another record sleeve. This time for singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow. The bad thing is I really enjoy the original artwork, still.

Front/Back Artwork:

Opens to this:

Then opens further to this:

One of my tutors suggested re-using the artwork for my first screenprint to see it in a different context, I think it works quite well. I kept the artwork black and white to try to create a haunting atmosphere to relate to the way JVM sings on this record. The inside artwork kind of relates to an interview I watched of JVM where he explained that he didn't want to explain his lyrics to people, he wanted them to create their own meaning or metaphor, that's kind of what the inside artwork is, I want people to create thier own view on what it means.

Harder Harmonies

For my second project of the year I created a movie poster for cult classic "Donnie Darko". I've created it for the Alamo Drafthouse, which is a branch of cinemas in America that specifically re-screen classic movies. This poster was successfully screen printed and as a result I will in the future create a range of hand screen printed posters for the Alamo Drafthouse.

The image depicts the end of the film when the time Donnie is given (at the start of the film; 28:06:42:12) and the wormhole opens up. Apologies if that spoiled anything for anyone. You should have already seen the film anyway. It's good.

Somewhere At The Bottom Of The River.

I redesigned/recreated artwork for La Disputes 12" Somewhere At The Bottom Of The River Between Vega And Altair for my first project of the year.

Pullout side two:

I used photos I had taken on 35mm film over the last month or so. The Outer Sleeve image was a photograph I cellulose thinned to get the abstract textured effect.
