A while back I posted a beautiful poster for Black Swan, designed by artist/musician Sam Smith. Well now Mr. Smith has released nine more incredible posters which he has created for his favourite films of 2010. Included are three films that made my personal top 10 list (Social Network, Black Swan & Winter’s Bone) and one for Dogtooth (which made my list last year). Never Let Me Go which is Sam’s favourite film, was my number 11 choice, but I still ranked it as the best sci-fi film of 2010. (see my list here).
When he’s not playing drums, Sam works as a graphic designer and illustrator. Growing up drawing and cartooning, Sam has in recent years found design in his passion for film and music, creating self-initiated film posters for Nashville’s historic Belcourt Theatre as well as gig posters and album artwork for friends. His recent clients have included Janus Films and The Criterion Collection.
Check out the poster art below, and be sure to visit his blog to see more of his artwork.
