    plus 1 for Oddbill's take, very original!
    You did good!

    and also Ken Miller's sense of humour.

    Its veery hard to have such a defined character and break
    away from the image, which is exactly what Oddbill did.

    More!

    Warren, how long do you plan on keeping this thread open?

    My internet goes out for six days and when I come back I find out about ALL THIS.

    Good grief, I only spent and hour or two on that thing, too. 'Just get that idea down and forget about it." I was thinking.

    ( No one seems to have yet caught on that all those 'names' in my poster - with the exception of Kubrick, Lee and Kirby - are all taken from Bart's prank calls to Moe on the Simpson's. Oh god. )

    Yes they seem to be getting popular! I know it's hard to pick just 4 or 5 to put on display, but seeing the sites that feature some of the artwork, i find that posters like hambot's or harper's are being overlooked. i find them very good on concept and originality. Good thinking! Good work!

    I agree; it's odd that those didn't get tagged as well; they both are amazing pieces of work!

    @Paul Sizer - I think perhaps yours and mine ( and a few others ) have gotten attention specifically because we did riff on posters from other Kubrick films, and the 'recognition' factor is what prompted those to be favored over others in this thread - which were just as, if not more - deserving of the props.

    But then, anyone who throws up a design in here is an art hero to me. It takes guts to post with some of the talent in here. All you guys blow my mind so fucking hard...

    @Berseker - Yours is another one of my favorites. Didn't mention it though cause it's almost always being picked up for display.
    Kubrick's subject matters were vast, from science fiction to horror... the man didn't stay in one genre and is therefore hard to label. One of the few ways for a poster to feel Kubrick is to adapt an existing design so people recognize, but in my view an idea that is noticeable more than once in his films is satire on the stupidity of war. I went that way when creating mine. Seems to me that was more or less your line of thought too.

    If it's not closed, it's not too late.

    I really should find time to play along again. Really good stuff in here and I was slightly gagging to break out the Futura Extra Bold.
