John Wick Poster Commission
Lights, Camera, Action Panels
After the success of my Mad Max: Fury Road private poster commission, I was asked to consider several films for another poster. John Wick was on my b-list. And then I watched the movie. I was blown away, pun intended. It’s a fantastic film and ranks among Keanu Reeves’s best. I sought to create the penultimate John Wick fan poster. Drawing influence for past film noir and current comic books, I developed two layouts paneling out several key scenes from the film. As a ‘gun-fu’ film, it’s one of the very best. Different weapons used throughout the film by Wick/Reeves are called out in background typography within the illustration panels. It was a labor of love and a send up to one of my favorite film genres, action! And if you are curious, yes I believe in gun control.
