“The Starlet”, Hail Caesar! movie premier poster

Artist Edition of 75

Signed and Numbered
I am incredibly honored to have been asked to make a poster for the Coen Brothers newest film, “Hail, Caesar!” to celebrate the movie’s premier.
“The Starlet” is my movie poster portrait of Scarlett Johansson, in her role as the brassy, troubled movie star of 1950’s swimsuit extravaganzas.
I wanted to cast my poster in a Film Noir style. I limited the palette, but increased the number of colors printed to ten colors, to give my poster a classic movie poster appearance. Two metallics, two spot colors, and a sepia toned shadow glaze combine with five additional colors to create an atmospheric 1950’s Los Angeles backlot studio office.
This poster was officially released this last Monday (2/116) through Hero Complex Gallery, Los Angeles in co-operation with Universal, The Coen Brothers, and Working Title. You can read more on AV Club.
I will be making a very limited online release of my Artist Edition of this poster on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at a random time.

It’s Edwardian Ball time again, and as always, it’s a great pleasure to work with Justin Katz, the Edwardian Ball impresario, and once again I had a lot of fun making this poster!
My Edwardian Ball posters always have an edge of social critique in them. They are done with a wink and a nod, in keeping with the enjoyment of attending such an elaborate period pageant.
Most of the attendees also realize that the Edwardian era was one of unabashed and ostentatious oligarchy, unrivaled economic imperialism and a presumed European superiority complex. It’s all of these things that makes the period so bizarre to us today. I’ve always endeavored to reveal this outrageous and bizarre sense of imperial entitlement in my Edwardian Ball posters, and keep them wild and fun.
I am very proud to announce that I am making the official poster for “The Art of Musical Maintenance 12” Rock Poster Show at The Goodfoot in Portland, Oregon. Some of my best rock posters from the last year will also be in the show.
Every year, Jason Brown of The Goodfoot and The Peoples’ Art of Portland gathers the best of the best in the Rock Poster medium to make a massive art show. I love this show; walking into The Goodfoot, one is offered the one of the greatest visual feasts in the Rock Poster world. Hundreds of the best rock posters of the last year, created by the best of the best, framed and arranged, artist by artist, in the perfect setting. Nothing encapsulates Portland, or Rock’n’Roll for that matter, more than this show! It’s the a great way to dig some art, drink a beer with friends, and perhaps bring home a super-cool momento from your favorite band or artist.
