Recently, I gave myself the task of designing my own 9"x12" poster illustrations inspired by all of the 24 James Bond movies and posting them on my twitter page. I hadn't anticipated the community of Bond enthusiasts that I would come to know through the exercise, and the fun discussions that would result from it.
I loved it so much that I wanted to keep creating posters inspired by other movies that I love, particularly in the Revenge-Action-Thriller genre, with a way to include other movie art enthusiasts in the process. So, I decided to create a patreon for it. Here I will be posting a new film-inspired illustration every month, along with:
- Process sketches
- Alternate design concepts
- Notes on what inspired the particular design
- Thoughts on what I hoped to accomplish with the illustration.
First up is one of my absolute favorites, JOHN WICK. Here's a little peek:
Some of the other films on my list:
- Man On Fire
- John Wick 2
- The Mask Of Zorro
- Django Unchained
- First Blood
- The Bourne Identity
- The Equalizer
- The Chinese Connection
- The Count of Monte Cristo
In this format I can sustain the production of these illustrations with the ability to:
- Offer commentary to Patrons about the process of conceiving and executing these illustrations through patreon exclusive updates.
- Choose which illustrations to execute based on input participation from Patrons.
- Distribute digital and physical copies of the final illustrations to Patrons.
I invite you to check out the pledge tiers to the right and find the one that best suits your interests. I've aimed to provide a little something for everyone and make worthwhile rewards for all backers. If we reach our first subscriber goal (see left) we'll introduce a monthly poll to determine which film is illustrated next!
***Please note that this Patreon is set up only to accept payment when a new Illustration is posted. So if there are any hectic months where output is slowed due to my workload, Patrons will not be charged :) Posts will be at the end of each month, starting March 2016***
Below are a few examples of the type of illustrations I'll be posting for Patrons (the rest can be found on my website). Eagle-eyed viewers will notice the hidden imagery in many of these-- I intend to infuse the Revenge-Action-Thriller illustrations with the same attention to detail whenever the design allows :)
Thanks very much for your time and interest!
