I did a poster for the art movie poster website The Silver Screen Society. The movie they assigned me, the 1984 sci-fi cult classic “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai” (starring Peter Weller, Jeff Goldblum, John Lithgow, and Ellen Barkin) is totally bananas, so it was pretty fun to make!
Below it, some detail views which reference various plot points, including but not limited to: travelling through matter to the “8th dimension”! Jeff Goldblum in a cowboy suit! Other dimension demons! Aliens in business attire and headsets! Giant laser-shooting, potato-like spacecraft! Buckaroo’s dreamy gaze behind his professorial spectacles!
Available as a poster on Society6. Thanks to the Silver Screen Society for featuring me, and be sure to check out their site if you like illustrative takes on pop culture.
I’m very excited to share some work I did for this month’s issue of Reader’s Digest Canada! A collection of Father’s Day-themed memoirs allowed me to do a great combination of lettering, editorial, and portrait work. For two of the illustrations, I was working closely from cherished family photos supplied by the contributors — a new challenge for me that I feel very honoured to have been given.
The issue can currently be found throughout Canada, including in the French edition (for which I got to take on some translated lettering). My thanks to Art Director Annelise Dekker for the assignment!
