Breaking Bad Poster Contest Entry

A few weeks back a friend sent me a link to a Breaking Bad season 5 poster contest for a local retailer in celebration of the upcoming Bluray/DVD release of the series finale.  Being a big Breaking Bad fan I was never going to miss this chance!   The brief was pretty simple – create a poster with the images supplied.   However, instead of doing something that’s been clearly Photoshopped to hell I decided to draw a Drew Struzan inspired poster, something I’ve tried several times with mixed results.  I’ve admired his movie poster artwork and design style for years, I even watch some video of him working to get an idea of how he goes about creating his work.  In the end though I realised he works differently to me so I just did a Struzen-esque poster in my own style, and for the most part I’m pleased with the results.   Probably about 20 hours work.  I’ll let you know how I fair in the contest. :)

UPDATE: Sadly I didn’t win the Breaking Bad Poster contest, I was however one of the 10 finalists and so won a runners up prize of the Breaking Bad Blu-Ray boxset.  :) There were some seriously good entries that made the final round so it was always going to be hard to win, but a top 10 finish isn’t too bad a result in my book, it’s the first time in many, many years I can remember winning anything, so I’m not complaining.   Check out the finalists and winning design at

    Cool poster! I love Breaking Bad. Here’s hoping you win that contest. Also I would love to see you do some more Superhero stuff. Ever think of tackling Hawkgirl?

    I’ve got some superhero stuff lined up, something a little unexpected I believe. I haven’t given up on the superhero content, it’s just I’m trying to expand my work beyond those borders. I’ve actually done Hawkgirl in the past but do do plan to do a revamped version in the near future.

    You should do Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, now that she’s cast
