It’s Friday the 13th and we’ve got a brand spankin’ new post: my version of a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Movie Poster.

I’ve been working on this for a while now.  I’ve been super busy getting ready to graduate school and I found the time to finish up and polish this piece which I am pretty proud of.  It’s kinda the culmination of all of my Fear and Loathing posts. This gonzo-inspired vision is available for purchase as a high quality artist print and movie poster:

For those who are wondering, yes that is not the original Ralph Steadman lettering from the book or movie poster.  I made it myself with ink, brush, and watercolor paper.  It was fun as hell trying to recreate such iconic lettering.  I used the original as reference, but I wanted to bring something new to the table.

Below are some of the steps I took to creating the poster and character, Enjoy
