I have been doing concert posters since 2003 and I have always wanted to be able to do some kind of movie poster. I was pretty excited when I was asked to do a poster for Maximum Overdrive. I am a huge Stephen King fan so making a poster for one of his strangest, most cringe worthy endeavors was something that I just couldn't pass up.
My music posters were often influenced by the simple style seen on mid-century Polish and South American film posters. Simplicity is something that I work very hard towards on nearly everything I do. This piece however, I wanted to try something different. I wanted to try for a more typically American movie poster feel. Tyler Stout has been working this way for years and his work clearly inspired my approach to this piece.
