This is the Army of Darkness poster for the Alternative Movie Posters 30X30:1992 exhibition that runs online from today until Friday. Prints of the poster are available for a limited time from here.
I was honoured to be part of this exhibition (and to be asked to do the show poster below) and the experience of liaising with my fellow exhibitors to show roughs and provide feedback was one of the most creatively supportive experiences of my career. Big thanks to Simon and Rick for putting the event on.
I toyed with a few different films before settling on Army of Darkness and I’m glad I did. I’ve always been a fan of illuminated manuscripts and when the idea to do one for AoD popped into my head I couldn’t do anything else. This one took a lot of planning and drawing work, but I’m really pleased with the results. This version is exclusive to the show, but I’m working on ideas for a variant (or perhaps more than one) to sell at a later date.
