Movie Poster Illustration for Film Festival Screening
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Mark Montgomery | Share link:

I designed the poster for the showing of the short film LOOM at the Rated SGF film festival this spring. The film is a visual love letter to 1970s werewolf movies, so I tried to make my image look as if a horror poster had been folded up and found in a closet after decades of mildew and rot. I used a lot of texture and more blood than I’ve ever drawn before! No real blood was used, however. The title was hand-drawn with a brush and ink and colored to mimic slasher movie titles in the ’70s and ’80s.

It was fun to research the colors and styles of movie posters from a time before they became overrun with photo collages. There has been a bit of a resurgence in illustrated blockbuster movie posters lately, and I couldn’t be more pleased. What a fun time to be an illustrator!
