Conversations with Filmmakers.

Printed my book jackets for assessment :)

Akira Kurosawa, Alfred Hithcock, The Coen Brothers.


Pretty much final?

Certainly hope so, I want to get them printed tomorrow.

University project - posters/book covers about Film Directors.

Akira Kurosawa, Alfred Hitchcock and the Coen Brothers.

Using elements from their films to create their portraits.

I don’t often say this about my work, but I’m quite happy how these have turned out. I could constantly tweak little bits endlessly, but for now I think I should stop fiddling… unless anyone points out any glaring things which don’t work!

Changed the back cover of the Hitchcock one, it now features the Bates Motel as opposed to the plughole, which gave the cover a weird perspective change, and didn’t really look like a plughole.

Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated!



The Coen Brothers: Interviews

University book cover/poster project. Hoping these are almost final. Need to add finishing touches to Akira Kurosawa and Alfred Hitchcock, then hopefully I can get them printed on Monday!

Any feedback before I send them to print would be greatly appreciated! Are there any bits which aren’t working for anyone?


The Coen Brothers WIP

Fitting scenes and images and characters from their films within their portraits. Part of my Film Director Book Cover series.

Second image is to compare it to the Hitchcock cover I’ve been working on. The wraparound cover bit would be the snow scene from Fargo, with the briefcase.

Considerably less time spent on this one compared to Hitchcock, so there are a lot of rough, jaggedy colour bits, but I wanted to mock up one to show tutors, to show that it would be part of a series.

Type is placeholder, for the book covers I’ll make it bigger (so it’ll probably cover a lot of characters), but then I want them as posters to go alongside, so that’s where I can have more characters visible)

Had a discussion with another tutor, about possibly bringing in more of a hand made vibe to it, either by screenprint (argh, lots of colours), or monoprint some bits and include them. We’ll see, but I’d like to go sleep now.
