There are lots of great prints on show reimagining lots of different films, including Iron Giant by Kevin Tong.

WarpFilms 10 - Dead Man’s Shoes Poster
Pete McKee is a painter, cartoonist and commercial artist from Sheffield. As Warp films celebrates 10 years, Pete McKee has been asked to re-work 10 of their film posters such as This is England, Submarine and Four Lions, putting a McKee spin on them. Dead Man’s Shoes is probably the stand out for me. You can see the rest here.

Little Print Shop of Horrors 2
It’s nearly Halloween and Creative Spark have been recreating posters for their favourite horror films again. Some great designs, but I particularly like the simple but effective They All Float Down Here poster for Stephen King’s IT. See the rest of the designs here. Limited edition prints of all the posters can be bought with all the proceeds going to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

M.C. Escher
M.C. Escher was a Dutch Graphic Artist known for his woodcuts, lithographs and mezzotints. His main focus was to create impossible imagery, inspired by mathematics. The image on the left is one of my favourites’ where the fish slowly turn into flying birds.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo
The 1958 film, Vertigo has ended the 50-year dominance of Orson Welles masterpiece, Citizen Kane in BFI’s decennial cinematic survey. Thought it was a great opportunity to post the Saul Bass designed poster for the film.  Still looks great 54 years later.Vertigo
