Alex Makes Art #101

Weirdly enough I've totally been making art, I just keep forgetting to post since I have a bit of a movie review backlog brewing over there. Catching up with 2012 and such, you know how it is. Anyway today for you I have TWO new poster designs that I am pretty excited about. But before I show them to you let me first announce an exciting new project I've started with Sasha James. We are both supreme poster nerds, so we've created a movie poster tumblr to showcase our loves to each other and to you. There'll be a new theme every 20 days or so, and they will all be awesome, and you should check it out!

Anyway here's some of my own poster art!

So you might remember my gushing post about The Royal Tenenbaums a few weeks ago? Since then I'd been concocting an idea for poster design but didn't have time until recently. I'm really happy with how it came out, I had been thinking about the imagery with Richie's tent and wanted to do something in a more sketchy, freer style. I think it worked! It's available for sale for $15.

It's been a while since I did a movie band gig poster, but I've still got some brewing in the back of my mind. I had an idea for Phoenix from Phantom of the Paradise and had to see it through, it's a little different than anything I've done but I like that. I wanted it to be a little trippy and colorful, so there it is. Also for sale for $15.

And hey while I'm self-promoting, here's a reminder that I'm still unemployed (but have an interview for an unpaid internship next week, oh happy day!) and could use any extra money I can get. So if you'd like to buy any of my stuff, please take a look at my etsy and redbubble shops! I can do commissions as well.
