Hans Hillmann, The Man in the White Suit, German movie poster, 1966
I'm happy to share this new theatrical poster I designed and illustrated for the release of Christophe Honoré's new film MÉTAMORPHOSES. Below is another snap of the poster, just sent to me by Christophe, in an alternate wide version for French theatres and subways. Look for the film in France and around the world this year.
Before selecting Rodrigo Corral's explosive cover design for the newly restored A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, Criterion had me throw a few quick ideas onto the pile. Following suit after checking out F. Ron Miller's designs the other day, I thought I'd post my favorite design I submitted. The 1964 Beatles classic is now playing at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville and in other fine theatres across the world.
Artist copies now available in my shop!
I'm happy to share this new design for THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG , available as a limited edition screenprint at the Belcourt Theatre starting this Thursday (Thanksgiving evening). 20 copies will be available at the Belcourt. Jacques Demy's iconic musical plays as part of a retrospective of the director's work continuing now at the Belcourt.
Here's a poster I made for The Light & Sound Machine, presented by Third Man Records and the Belcourt Theatre, for this week's presentation of the films of Kenneth Anger. Part One, with Part Two coming next month. A very very limited number of prints will be for sale at the event, Thursday night at 7pm at Third Man.
Here's a new poster I designed for the new documentary MATEO, a wonderful and captivating documentary about musician Mateo Stoneman. Mateo's songs are inspired by and recorded within the sound of Cuban music, and I drew on some Cuban poster art influences to create this piece. Catch MATEO at South by Southwest this March and at other festivals throughout the year.
My last Frames piece for The Dissolve is up-- a poster design for Spike Jonze's HER.

Thanks to the fantastic staff and readers of The Dissolve, and keep your eyes there for more collaborations in the near future...
