30 x 30: Near Dark

Near Dark

30x30: 1987

I was asked by Alternative Movie Posters to contribute to their first group show in London. The show was themed around the year 1987, a year that was a landmark for popular cinema. I was asked which film I would like to do and chose the criminally underrated Kathryn Bigelow masterpiece ‘Near Dark’. The film left a deep impact on my psyche as a child and was one of the first R-rated films I was allowed to watch. It absolutely terrified me. I developed the illustration entirely as vector art attempting again to push the medium as far as possible. It was also an honor to draw a portrait of Bill Paxton so soon after his passing. Near Dark offers up one of his best roles.

The show itself was a success and turned out a large audience.
