Film series

This is the first image of a new series I'm working on, 
 interpreting classic films.  This one is from the 
Night Of The Hunter, a 1955 film, and the only one directed by
the famous actor Charles Laughton.  The movie is one of the
first American films to fully utilize a wide range of expressionistic
techniques found previously mostly in German expressionist films
such as The Cabinet of Dr Kaligari.  It was a flop on its release,
But became a huge influence on the films of Scosese, Jarmusch,
the Coen Bothers, Tarentino, and many other "expressionistic" 
film makers from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

Sketch archive

Sometimes when I get a job I want to turn all of the sketches to finals.
Below are a selection of unused sketches from various assignments 
including topics such as Pirates, Mexican mobsters, famine,
revolution, the end of the world, and the nature of good and evil.
Believe it or not, people actually pay me to do this.
