What if the Batman vs Superman movie was to feature Batman from the late 1960s with Superman and Wonder Woman from the 1970s? That was basically the idea behind this fanmade poster. I grew up watching the Superman movies and saw a ton of the old Batman TV show. Never watched the Wonder Woman series though.
This week's REMAKE challenge from Warren Ellis. Here's the brief: "So we here at Whitechapel were going to be involved in a multiple-website remake/remodel-Project-Rooftop type thing for Aquaman. For some reason, this didn't pan out the way it was supposed to. Possibly I lost track of things, I don't know.
But the idea still amuses me. However, I think it needs that extra little twist.
So your INSTRUCTIONS are:
Design a publicity poster for an adaptation of the DC Comics property AQUAMAN -- for HBO. HBO is the home of DEADWOOD, THE WIRE, THE SOPRANOS, ROME, BOARDWALK EMPIRE, you know the score... and therefore you know their stable of showrunners, people like David Simon and David Milch... and the sort of material they do.
The HBO version of AQUAMAN.
That's it. You have one week. Begin."
I may have gone to "pretty boy" for HBO; this may be a better pitch for Showtime or Cinemax.

This year I sent cards like these! I'm aware that not everyone has yet received theirs, but I have mailed them all anyway, I hope you like it!
Bird is actually supposed to be "sielulintu" from finnish mythology. This is a quotation from another finnish designers site, who has designed wooden birds of her own.
"In Karelia there was an ancient belief in the Sielulintu or Soul bird. The Sielulintu was thought to deliver the soul to newborn babies and also to transport the soul to the afterlife at the moment of death. It was believed the Sielulintu protected a persons soul at itís most vulnerable; when dreaming, and it was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep."
