the shining commission by strongstuff the shining commission by strongstuff
this was for a bloke in the UK who saw my dawn of the dead poster and wanted me to work up something similar for the shining.

i initially wanted to have jack's face in the negative space of the door, but i thought it was somehow more menacing with the main focus just on the hatchet and typography.

Great work. The way you implement the typography into the composition is really visually pleasing. 
Check out my Shining illustration if you get a chance:

I'm so lazy that, if Iwere Jack, I'd write:
"all work and no play makes jack a dull boy, etc."

I love the usage of perspective and the colors of this poster a lot. And in my opinion the decision to display only the hatchet was right because it's more "subtle".
But I don't really understand the small images at the lower boarder of the poster. The left one looks lika a bar code but the others?

The typographie of your work is really appealing. Maybe you shouldn't have displayed all the actors names, but that's only an attempt to be some kind of constructive ;).

In addition I featured your image on my German blog project: [link]

The amount of details..the maze, the rug from the hallways, the girls and the typewriter...simply amazing work! I think this may be may favorite piece you have done.

The commissioner is really lucky!
