Art Kino

Art Kino is an art book bringing together a collection of illustrations inspired by some of my favourite films.

I work digitally to create atmospheric alternative film posters. I've been obsessed with creating my own posters for films since 2010, my first ever poster being inspired by the Pierce Brosnan smash hit, Dantes Peak (ahem, it's my favourite film, OK?). I really love old Polish film poster art and the designs of Saul Bass. The textured, painterly style I use is reminiscent of my time spent painting as an art student, where I used lots of big textures with tiny details.

The book

Thanks to your support, the book will be a beautifully printed hardback with full colour pages, measuring 210mm x 148mm and 32 pages long. I'm aiming to fill it with about 26 pieces of original art. 

The pledges made will go towards printing the book. Everyone who pledges will get their name printed in the book as a huge THANK YOU!

My story

I trained in fine art at Falmouth College of Art, Cornwall, graduating in 2007. Since then, I've been sucked into the world of 'real work' but this month I'm embarking on a new journey to focus my time almost completely on artistic pursuits. It's a terrifying prospect, and I have a long journey ahead of me, but it's really exciting. Raising the cost to print this book is just one step in the journey, so your support will help make this a reality.
