I am incredibly honored to have been asked to make a poster for the Coen Brothers newest film, “Hail, Caesar!” to celebrate the movie’s premier.
“The Starlet” is my movie poster portrait of Scarlett Johansson, in her role as the brassy, troubled movie star of 1950’s swimsuit extravaganzas.
I wanted to cast my poster in a Film Noir style. I limited the palette, but increased the number of colors printed to ten colors, to give my poster a classic movie poster appearance. Two metallics, two spot colors, and a sepia toned shadow glaze combine with five additional colors to create an atmospheric 1950’s Los Angeles backlot studio office.
This poster was officially released this last Monday (2/116) through Hero Complex Gallery, Los Angeles in co-operation with Universal, The Coen Brothers, and Working Title. You can read more on AV Club.
I will be making a very limited online release of my Artist Edition of this poster on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at a random time.
