Calgary based Graphic design, Illustration, comic, cartoon and caricature

The folks at CIFF, the Calgary International Film Festival approached me to do a three Pantone colored movie poster for prints. I chose the movie “Slap Shot” because it was an iconic representation of Canadian hockey life, I could just relate to it. The Hanson Brothers were the cliche of the hockey goon, they were goofy with thick bottle-bottom glasses. Even though they were goons– they were also child-like in their innocence. The poster was screen printed so the art prep took the longest part of the project, each color had to be hand separated. Artwork was done using Illustrator and Photoshop.
