Featured in La Spirale, a French web magazine

Thanks to La Spirale for featuring a selection of my work along with a brief write up.

"Men of iron, copper cyborgs and robots chairs or Victorian creatures steam 1Sthar to borrow uchronies of steampunk. A scent of the nineteenth century and revised by the dystopias of 90 years to promote and lead-heavy rhythms of Isis, Kreator and Napalm Death." - sample from google translation

alamo ten commandments poster

c2final, originally uploaded by 1SHTAR.

From the mondo tees website. BUTT NUMB A THON 10 POSTER BY JESSE PHILIPS

It's hard to believe it's been 10 long years of Harry Knowles' Aint It Cool News Butt-Numb a Thon events! And this year's theme (obviously) is the Ten Commandments.

And nothing says 'The Ten Commandments' other than a Giant Robot Moses parting the Red Sea, crushing the Golden Calf, and bringing the stone tablets down from the mount...ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

Jesse Philips is the brain behind some of our best (and completely sold out) posters over the years, and he manages to trump himself every time. This poster is 24x36, individually numbered, and is printed by D and L screen printing out of Seattle! Mondo will only have 45 of this print for sale.

From The ADH website:

The Rolling Roadshow Tour: the Leone Edition
Every summer, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema takes to the road, departing from Austin, Texas on a whirlwind tour and hosting free 35mm screenings of famous movies in famous places. Known as The Rolling Roadshow Tour, it has been to the Field of Dreams in Iowa to show Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner live in person, Devil's Tower in Wyoming for a screening of Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind and Alcatraz Island for a screening of Escape From Alcatraz. In 2008, The Rolling Roadshow Tour is paying tribute to one of the most influential film series of the modern age, Sergio Leone's "dollars" trilogy, A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Chef Groupies

Trying out a new illustration style on this fairly challenging illustration I just finished for Time Out New York about chef groupies. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Though I caught some flak for not doing it in my 'hard edged' graphic style.

I Finished up my Diabolik poster which will be featured along with some of my other posters at L'ETRANGE FESTIVAL in Lyon. Check out my previous post for more info on the event.

And here is a description of the poster series and the artist involved (so far) by FabienThévenot:

After our "fake posters of real movies" re-designed by illustrators about the 70's exploitation films, we are working on a new series about the 60's decade.
We select a list of films we would like to see the people re-designed it.
Here's the list. We already have 5 illustrators to work on 5 posters, and we would like you to participate as the 6th.

List of posters already taken :
PEEPING TOM of michael powell (1960)

THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD of george romero (1968)

PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES of mario bava (1965)

CARNIVAL OF SOULS de herk harvey (1962)

SWORD OF DOOM of kihachi okamoto (1966)
