Iconic Hand Drawn Movie Posters

Movie posters make a big impact. They seduce audiences in to spending their money on cinema tickets and can become the ‘image’ of the movie.

Then there are those posters that become more than just advertising material, they become iconic and pop culture collectables.  These artists didn’t rely on technology, computers or the latest photography must have.  These posters were hand drawn by extremely talented and creative artists who managed to capture the feeling of the films. Here are just a handful that come to mind when I think about these posters, I wanted to share them with you.  I’m not about to delve in to the techniques or theory of each image, it’s simply a collection of awesome posters!

Vintage Poster Discovery in London Tube Tunnel

I don’t usually post links to other blog articles but I saw a post on urbanghostsmedia.com this morning that really caught my imagination and I wanted to share.  While upgrading Notting Hill Gate station this year, vintage 1950′s advertising posters were discovered telling us to ‘Travel Royal Blue’ and ‘Wonder where the yellow went’ with Pepsodent toothpaste.

This is right up my street.  I love these posters and they serve as a great source of inspiration with their bold colours and fun artwork.  Unfortunately, these wont be available to anybody to view, the area is completely inaccessible but will be left intact.

I will definitely be storing these images they’re just fabulous!  I can almost see and feel the hustle and bustle of 1950′s London in this photo.
