Spider-Man 2 Deco Poster

I was asked to contribute to a group art show in Paris, France sponsored by Artoyz, a very well-known designer toy company in Europe. The theme for the show was "Summer Blockbusters" and each submitting artist could chose from a master list of big summer movies all the way back to the 70's, where films like JAWS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND laid the groundwork for "the Big summer Blockbuster" kind of films.

I chose SPIDER-MAN 2, STILL one of my favorite super-hero films, and decided to give it my Deco-Sizer whammy. We were instructed to not JUST make a movie poster, but try to think of it as art inspired by the movie, hence why there's no big type logo on this piece, just the "2" on the bottom. But honestly, I like making this a design that doesn't need to have a big title, and let the images tell the story. Hopefully people like it.

Thank you very much. I agree: Spider-Man 2 was such an amazing combination of story and great characterization. Doc Ock was pitch perfect. Avengers was great as well, but Spidey 2 still holds a special place in my heart.

I'm thoroughly amused by the almost comical look you gave this poster. As opposed some of your other drawings I've browsed through, this one looks... old. But in a good way. Like wicked retro. :)

Thank you; I had a blast working on this poster.
Like a mix of Art Nouveau, Deco, and minimalism
