It’s alive!… ALIVE!!!
A neon poster for HELP!
The semaphore actually spells NUJV! According to cover photographer Robert Freeman, “I had the idea of semaphore spelling out the letters HELP, but when we came to do the shot the arrangement of arms with those letters didn’t look good, so we decided to improvise and ended up with the best graphic positioning of the arms.”
A neon poster for Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. Tequila! http://youtu.be/BodXwAYeTfM
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?
A neon poster for King Kong (1933), complete with Art Deco and a large phallic symbol.
I’ve also added to the neon with some flashing bulbs for this design - After all, he is ‘The Eighth Wonder Of The World’.
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.
