So it ends, this has been a terrifyingly fun challenge and one I look forward to next year! I think however I will be better prepared. Starting out on this challenge I had the first week and a half already drawn, from there it was pretty much a break neck endeavor. If you’d like to purchase prints they will be $25.00 a piece 8″x 8″  in a mat or satin finish. I may end up releasing all in a limited softback magazine for the holidays. I hope you’ve enjoyed this spooky trip, I have.

Horns…

My latest Alternative Movie Poster endeavor:

About a year ago I watched the film adaptation of Joe Hill’s novel Horns. It was a decent movie and worth watching again. A few weeks ago I read the novel and listened to it via audio book. I was blown away by the difference in the depth of the characters and overall story vs the movie. It inspired me to do my own take on a cover for the book & the movie. I began the sketch one morning at work andover the next few days played around with other sketches. I kept going back to my original though.

HORNS SKETCH 1

Initially I was going to do a watercolor for this piece so I purchased some watercolor paper and set about working. In my original sketch the main character Ignatius Perrish has hair, I decided to go ahead and make him bald as he was in the book. I’m glad I decided to stick to the author’s writing. The movie made some changes that I felt were unneeded. I laid down a pencil drawing and next moved to pen and ink.

HORNS SKETCH 2

I’ve always loved working with a pen nib and ink and really felt for this piece it was the way to go.

HORNS SKETCH 3

With the inking done I was going to start blocking off portions for the painting but first I wanted a nice clean scan of the finished drawing. This decision changed the direction of the piece. I was looking at the scan in Adobe Illustrator and started playing around with a few things. Before I knew it hours had passed and I had finished the thing! Below is the final image for my take on the cover of Horns. I hope you like it. As always if you’d like to purchase a print of this Alternative Movie Poster hit me up at jerry.winnett@gmail.com or leave me a message in the comments.

Let Sleeping Gods Lie

Sometimes my illustration work creates itself from start to finish within my head. I can close my eyes and see a piece forming. I often think this is when my work is best. This is true whether it’s a logo, an illustration, design work and photography.

A Cthulhu inspired piece.

Let Sleeping Gods Lie inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos is one such piece. Simple almost childlike yet it stays with the viewer. If it makes the viewer smile, so much the better. If you’d like a print of Let Sleeping Gods Lie by all means leave a reply. Prints will be about 12×18 Signed and numbered. Price $40.00
