Illustrator and designer Matt Ryan Tobin is just unbelievable. I mean, you think that the guy CAN’T get any better than his last commissioned poster for “Interview with The Vampire” and then he turns out an astounding commissioned poster based on my favorite film in the Halloween series…”Halloween III: Season of The Witch“.
Just look at this thing! It’s spectacular and I wish I was part of that commission group!
Here’s a little of what Matt had to say about this poster…
“This wasn’t the concept I was set on originally at all, but boy am I glad I chose it. Ever since I was approached to tackle H3 – I was pretty excited. It was a horror movie that had a lot of sci-fi elements to it. I was really looking forward to making a poster for a horror movie that wasn’t necessarily horrific (in the obvious sense) looking. My original concept was more scenic and simple, less abstract and when I went pencil to paper with the preliminary sketch for this – it just made sense to make something a little less conventional for a movie thats…a little less conventional.
I knew from the get-go the color palette I wanted. Thats one for sure thing. There had to be retro television elements as well. Once the pencil sketch was laid out – I actually didn’t stray too far from it. There was more calculation to this piece than a lot of my passed ones – however, I loved being able to be a little wreckless in the coloring / warped imagery. Less precise in shading and what not.
This is a fun print and the glow factor I think makes this even cooler. So happy with how it came out.”
