Client: Entertainment Weekly
Art Direction: Chuck Kerr
Recognition: American Illustration 40 (2021)
I recently had the pleasure of illustrating and typographizing (yes I made that word up, fight me!) a full spread for an article in Entertainment Weekly about the ten year anniversary of one of my favorite movies of all time, Scott Pilgrim vs the World.
One of the challenges in illustrating a spread is that the gutter kind of swallows up the middle of the illustration, so I will sometimes opt for a very balanced, symmetrical composition like this. It worked well for this project, since the movie pits various characters against each other in an homage to classic fighting video games.
