mondo: cowboys & aliens
i've been looking forward to seeing cowboys & aliens for quite a while now, so i was pretty excited when director jon favreau picked me from the mondo roster to design a poster for the upcoming flick.
the seed for my design was planted while reading an interview with favreau during the movie's production. i was excited when i heard that he intended it to play as a straight western... that just happened to have aliens in it. when i received the assignment to create a limited edition screenprint for the film, i remembered that intent and wanted to channel some of the incredible spaghetti western poster design that graced movie theaters in the 1960's. much like the tone of the film itself, i wanted my design to read as a western poster first and let the alien references throughout slowly reveal it to be something much more.
it was a great experience collaborating with the mondo crew and jon favreau to pull this thing together. now to see the film...
