Some people are lucky enough to figure out at an early age what they want to do for a living, but, face it, not everyone is well-suited to be a chimney sweep. Turning his early love of film into sweet steez for your pad, the artist behind Seek&Speak.
S&S is a crazy extensive collection of minimalist, reworked retro movie posters that aim to translate a flick's theme into simple, iconic images, all from a homegrown graphic designer who started dabbling in film posters at 13, when most people are too busy dabbling themselves. Prints with an ominous vibe include The Dark Knight portraying a two-faced, half Batman/half Joker; the Blair Witch Project (dark gray poster with frantically made handprints across the bottom); and one that depicts a dusting of heroin amidst bloody maps of France/New York for The French Connection, also what you famously titled your middle school diary entry after playing Spin the Bottle. Other highlights include Planet of the Apes, featuring a paper airplane-holding gorilla sitting atop a pile of skulls; One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, in which all the "O"s have been replaced with bird cages; and an adventure map print for the 25th anniversary of The Goonies replete w/ flying bats and crossed swords, although no movie does crossed swords like Cop and a Half. No movie!
In case that's not enough (and it's not!), S&S also rocks illustrations from classics like Ghost Busters, Back to the Future, and Monty Python, along with a sweet 5-print Stanley Kubrick series and a handful of book quote pieces like Animal Farm's "Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad", which as Dick Van Dyke's pre-pubescent lackeys can tell you, is exactly the opposite of the chimney sweep credo.
