I forgot to mention this goodie but with BAFTA hitting this weekend (we'll live blog) we're quite happy that this is an annual tradition now with BAFTA. Each year they hire illustrators to make Best Picture guides for their nominees. Look at this one for Drive.
The scorpion jacket is an obvious image to go with but where this really wins me over is the little touches like the bold red splash, the clenched fist, the faint suggestion of an elevator (that glowing button) and that tell-tale glove hanging from the back pocket. It just such an instant recall of so much of the movie's indelible moments.
The Help, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Artist and The Descendants after the jump
The Help is the one I find the most disappointing. The chocolate pie? Really? I like The Descendants conceptually but maybe not quite in execution but Tinker Tailor and The Artist are pretty magical takes on their movies, recalling what makes the movies great and the small details, like in Drive, that bring the whole thing back to mind.
Would you put any of these on your wall?
