Postercraft

”Reprinting is shady if you say the image is limited edition.”

Kevin Tong creates these masterpieces directly from his head. No scetches. Just a long meticilous mind planning…

“The Bride of Frankenstein”

Recently I’ve posted some awesome ”Robocop” posters… Kevin Tong was responsible for creating some of the most impressive of them, so I thought it would be interesting to share more of this Austin-based artist. Here’s an excerpt from his interview to Evil Tender:

– You have some awesome videos online that follow you through your process of creating your posters. Do you sketch heavily before you begin a piece? In the process video for the Mogwai poster it seems that you just begin by drawing, creating a perfectly designed poster from your head. Of course it is from your head, but is every element well plotted out before you start working in the final product? 

– Sketching, I really dislike sketching. Usually I go straight to final. The idea percolates in my head for a long time. I like to think and rethink it, but never put anything to paper until I feel I’m ready to start. I try out lots of ideas in my mind and if I forget an idea, it’s not worth drawing. Eventually, through survival of the fittest, the entire image is formed in my mind, so i just start working. A lot of the thinking occurs when I’m driving somewhere, cooking, or hanging out. I’m told I look really upset when I’m thinking of ideas.

Here are some of the final results:

Visit Kevin Tong’s website, ”Tragic Sunshine”. There are basically megatons of graphic awesomeness.

It’s a little known fact, but while scavenging for those marvellous “Robocop” posters I stumbled upon an impressive amount of a nasty fan fantasy…

Robocop, Michael Fassbender’s model. Probably based on the rumours of Fassbender’s involvement in the 2014 remake.

Did I just say impetious and vehement nasty in the beginning of this post?

Sooner or later Robocop vs Terminator had to happen, if not on the big screen, then at least in the readers’ minds notebooks.
