A neon poster for Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. BEETLEJUICE!
Happy Independence Day! Here’s a neon poster for Captain America.
This is similar to my previous Batman neon sign - the villian appropriating the hero’s logo - http://mrwhaite.tumblr.com/post/6490963767/neonbatman
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?
Another Jack for my pack of movie themed playing cards - ’walking meat loaf’ Jack from An American Werewolf in London.
I didn’t mean to call you a meat loaf, Jack.
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

Another design for my movie-themed pack of cards, the King of Clubs - King Kong.
I’ve gone for the classic 1933 Kong with added Art Deco details.
