“When growing up I was a huge comic book fan, reading everything comics related I could get my hands on (which, in Eastern Europe wasn’t as easy as one might think). I used to copy my favourite artists and draw my own stories. Back in the day working for comic giant such as Marvel seemed like an impossible dream, so as soon as I heard the GMA guys are getting the license for Marvel films, I had a number of titles I wanted to tackle.
I was thrilled and excited to work on Jon Favreau’s: Iron Man, by far my favourite and best Marvel film (next to The Guardians of the Galaxy). I enjoy it greatly every time I see it. I wanted the composition to reflect the conflict between good and evil by dividing the canvas into two parts. Since I was always drawn towards villains in those type of movies I decided to build the composition around Obadiah’s sinister headshot (one cannot really dislike The Dude).
It wouldn’t be a complete Iron Man poster without Tony Stark, Pepper Potts and Iron Man’s classic pose. I hope the fans of the movie will appreciate it. I know for sure I had a blast doing it and I’m very happy with cleverly used foil this time around.” – Gabz

“When I decided to tackle Nosferatu, I wanted to make sure that it was something different. There is so many great prints and posters done for the film that hit their mark. From Ken Taylor’s beautiful art deco styled collage, Brandon Schaefer’s artistically crafted creepiness to Christopher Cox’s likeness driven design, artists have been paying a great tribute to arguably the greatest horror film ever made.
I first started with making the vampire was represented, not just in likeness but in tone, taking the design on cover of the vampire book Hutter finds in his room at the inn. The animals surrounding the eye were incorporated in the same order surrounding Orlock. I also wanted add the main element that would be familiar to most, choosing the wood carved cuckoo clock concept of both the period, and the country of origin of the film.
The choice of paper was extremely important to both the design and feel of the print. After going back and forth with my paper samples, I decided the film could be represented two different ways, the speckletone kraft being used for it’s antique look as well as the look of day scenes in the colorized version of the film and the carbon copy paper for it’s specks of browns and reds and of course representing the black and white of the original film. This two choices give people the choice on how they feel personally to the film.” – Timothy Pittides
