Theatre Poster Illustrations

Posted on

Quite a few months ago, I was hired by Trinity Western University here in BC, to design this year’s posters for their SAMC Theatre Productions, based on some illustrative posters I have done in the past.

This was a really fun project for me! Some of the productions I knew, and some were new to me. Thanks again for TWU for being such a great client to work with, maybe we can partner up again sometime!

Here they are in order of show appearance:

My Oscar Posters 2016

Posted on

Every year I love to reimagine the Oscar-nominated films in quick posters that I design. It’s mostly just a fun exercise for me. The only rule is that I have to see the film, and then one scene or image that sticks out or sums up the film, will make up the poster.

Here’s what I came up with!

Oscar Posters 2015

I have been holding out to see “Selma” before posting these, but I still have not been able to find that anywhere…. alas one day I will, and shortly thereafter add my version of the poster to this collection.

There were 8 nominees this year, and I decided against seeing “American Sniper”. So I will hold any comments or feelings about that film to myself 🙂

The other 7 [sans “Selma”] I managed to see…. and I found them all to be incredible in their own way. I am listing them from Most Enjoyed to Least Enjoyed, which is of course only my opinion. Posters to follow: [click for larger versions]

“The Theory of Everything”  [2014] – I thought the acting was superb in this film. What a tremendous true story of perseverance, strength and courage. Loved it!

“The Imitation Game” [2014] – Another true story. Heartbreaking, and almost unbelievable what one man accomplished – and what he unjustly suffered afterwards. Such an important story and an incredible film.

“Boyhood” [2014] – I wasn’t sure what to make of this film, except that I knew it was filmed over so many years. But after seeing it, I think it was quite beautiful. Linklater was able to create a film that really did feel like snapshots of a lifetime; almost like when you think back to your own upbringing. Great film.

“The Grand Budapest Hotel” [2014] – The colour palettes and cinematography on Anderson’s film are always magical. This one was so saturated and almost hyper-real, but it really fit the world. One of my favs of his films.

“Whiplash” [2014] – The acting on this film was incredible as well. Somehow a music class and a drum teacher made for an incredibly fascinating film.

“Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance” [2014] – While I didn’t care for this film as much as the general public, I can appreciate the long trucking shots and the interesting choices made for cinematography sake. I sort of liked how it ended as well 🙂

Oscar 2014 movie posters: reimagined

Posted on Updated on

I have watched the Oscars every year with my dad since I was a little girl, so it is a definite highlight for me every year! Now that I live in a different province, watching the Oscars with my dad becomes a bit challenging! But this year, he is flying over for a visit, so the three of us will have our own Oscar party, and I cannot WAIT.

SO. This year I am trying something different. We are trying to see at least all the Best Picture nominations [not to mention of COURSE the Best Animated Features!!] – so of the ones we watch, I am making a simple graphic movie poster of what message stood out most to me. So far I have made 3 posters. **UPDATED – I have made 8 of 9 posters – I have decided not to see “Wolf of Wall Street” – I saw the other 8 so here they are!

****BEST PICTURE WINNER “12 Years a Slave” [2013]
