the shining commission

By strongstuff
this was for a bloke in the UK who saw my dawn of the dead poster and wanted me to work up something similar for the shining.

i initially wanted to have jack's face in the negative space of the door, but i thought it was somehow more menacing with the main focus just on the hatchet and typography.

Gorgeous. I love how the S is created using both negative and positive space, too.

Bellissimoo!! Amazing!
Great work. The way you implement the typography into the composition is really visually pleasing. 
Check out my Shining illustration if you get a chance:

I'm so lazy that, if Iwere Jack, I'd write:
"all work and no play makes jack a dull boy, etc."
