It’s the Wimbledon finals this weekend, so I thought this would be a suitable neon poster to mark the occasion. It’s the creepy scene from Strangers on a Train where Guy Haines (Farley Granger) is being stalked by Robert Walker’s murderous Bruno.
At a tennis match the crowd watch the ball play back and forth while Bruno remains motionless, staring menacingly across the court at Guy.
A classic Hitchcock moment - can you spot him in the crowd?

Simon Pegg - a portrait combining props and costumes from:
Shaun of the Dead (Shaun) beard, cricket bat & tie-bandana
Hot Fuzz (Nicholas Angel) shades, guns & ammo
Star Trek (Scotty) shirt & badge
Run Fatboy Run (Dennis) shorts & trainers
Burke and Hare (William Burke) sideburns
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (Inspector Thompson) bowler hat
Simon Pegg is one of the UK’s most successful exports, effortlessly juggling action and comedy roles. In this portrait, the guns and Trek shirt convey his love for cool/geeky American pop culture, whilst the bowler hat and cricket bat maintain his quintessential Britishness. The lack of trousers just make him look silly.

Movie tie-in games are commonplace these days, but back in the early ’80s when video games were still in their infancy, they were few and far between.
On 22nd May 1980, Pac-man was launched - the next day, Kubrick’s The Shining was released. Both contain mazes, ghosts and chasing. If Warner Brothers had licensed Midway to make a movie tie-in game at the time, the advert may have looked like this…

An animated portrait of Stanley Kubrick and his films, based on a Rubik’s Cube.
Kubrick’s films are meticulously pieced together like intricate puzzles, so this seems like an appropriate way to portray the great director - hidden within his own work. Also, Kubrick rhymes with Rubik and I’m a sucker for wordplay. 
This artwork is available as a print, showing all 6 films that make up the portrait - http://www.redbubble.com/products/configure/7373288-mounted-print

Jaws was released 36 years ago today and I still won’t get back in the water.
For this design, I initially tried animating the classic Jaws poster with the swimmer and shark. Unfortunately it looked like the girl was swimming on the spot and the shark was chewing gum - not very menacing!
Instead, I’ve gone for a pair of shapely female legs treading water - it evokes a sleazy strip-club neon sign but with added danger. Also, the ripples are a neat link to the previous Spielberg neon poster, Jurassic Park.

A neon poster for Jurassic Park - you’ll have to provide your own sound effects.
It would’ve been fun to animate a neon T-rex for this poster, but Spielberg does such a great job of building up the tension before he’s revealed - the classic cup scene seemed like a more appropriate image.
Besides, for The Lost World poster I get to animate 2 T-rexes pulling a man apart. Cool!

A neon poster for the 1989 Tim Burton Batman film.
I loved this film when it was first released but I remember lots of critics complaining that Jack Nicholson’s Joker stole the show and overshadowed the title character. They may have had a point! 
I’ve tried to reflect that in this design with the Joker hi-jacking Batman’s symbol.
