The cinema section is being curated by the incredible CRITERION folks, with film selections by Jim Jarmusch. My two posters are for Jacques Becker’s Touchez pas au grisbi and Jules Dassin’s BRUTE FORCE. Criterion designer Eric Skillman knocked the final designs out of the park, taking my paintings and emulating old EC and DC covers. Other comics artists will be filling out the poster roster, including buddies Scott Campbell and Matt Kindt. Tickets are still available, I believe, if you’re planning on being in the area.
If anyone knows where we can find more of the festival posters, pass ’em along.
