Halloween 40th Anniversary Movie Poster
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Graeme Neil Reid | Share link: http://illo.cc/78232

It’s been 40 years since ‘The Shape’ first terrorised poor Laurie Strode (played by Jamie Lee Curtis) in the small town of Haddonfield. After escaping from a mental hospital under the watchful gaze of Dr Loomis, convicted murderer and mask enthusiast Michael Myers returns to his home town and quickly picks up where he left off murdering hapless teens on the spookiest night of the year. This classic horror film written by John Carpenter and Debra Hill, directed and scored by Carpenter, set the standard for many years and spawned a long running franchise which sees a new Halloween film released this very year. To celebrate four decades of this classic, my Patreon supporters can download an A3 high resolution ‘movie poster’ print and creep themselves out staring into his ‘blank, pale, emotionless face, and… the blackest eyes – the Devil’s eyes.’

I employed Graeme as the sole illustrator and designer on The Dangerous Book of Heroes. The quality of his work was excellent and he was great at understanding what we at HarperCollins needed, and at doing it quickly too. It was a complicated project, and the drawings needed to be historically accurate as well as engaging for the reader and Graeme was particularly good at paying attention to the details which were important to us and the author. The project was on a tight timescale and he rose to the challenge, producing everything in time and to budget, with great creativity, speed and care.
