This was a 10-minute illustration of Mike Tyson

 

MOVIES

This poster was a personal project which I designed for a contest online.

The next 3 images were all entered into a contest run by Crazy4Cult, with the winner being displayed in poster form in an LA art gallery – of which the third image made it into the final 10, which went to an online vote.  You can see the other entries here – http://g1988.blogspot.com/2008/08/test-contest.html

 An illustrated poster for the cult horror film ‘Candyman’.

 2 legends doing battle in ‘Way of the Dragon’.

The director Kevin Smith (Dogma, Clerks) was one of the judges who voted on this design, which incorporates 2 cult films – and this design became the inspiration for my old corporate identity.

MUSIC

The next two are both musical illustrations – the first one was used on tour posters for a band called ‘Sunrise not Secular’, while the second is a general design that I hope to use on something in the future.
