A group of artists has put together a collection of posters based on this year’s Academy Awards Best Picture nominees.
And some of them, like the “Django Unchained” image above are pretty terrific.
The “Django” image is from comic artist Mark Englert, and his biggest accomplishment is capturing the fleeting moments of sombre beauty in Tarantino’s film. My only gripe: the image tilts Tarantino’s deliberately Southern film into the Western territory with its color scheme, but that’s a small complaint.
Illustrator Rich Kelly’s “Beasts of the Southern Wild” poster is really the standout, capturing the gritty magical realism of the Bathtub, Hushpuppy, and Wink in one lovely image.
