bride of frankenstein


remember when movie posters were actually pieces of art and not just
generic photoshopped collages comprised of movie stars' faces?

yeah, me too.

if you're feeling nostalgic for those days, check out one of my all-time
favorite artists, drew struzan. from star wars to hellboy, back to the future
to harry potter, he's pretty much the master of the painted movie poster.
thankfully, this guy still works and produces amazing pieces. look out
for his poster to the new indiana jones movie in theaters this summer.

i also find posters and lobby card art from old horror movies to
be beautiful, inspiring examples of typography and design.
above is another one of the classic universal monster posters
that i've adapted in my style.
