Grizzly Man.

This is the poster I've done after watching "Grizzly Man" last week.
Check Matt's illustration about the documentary too here.



And my original sketch.

Oh dear - this is as funny as Matts.
Very well done.
The love heart is an extremely amusing touch.

A beaut! Love the red bear. Love the graphic crispy feel. Plus, in a way, the bear is adorable.

Haven't seen this movie, so now we must.

Stef said...

Hey Elliot, I drew this heart because I found so funny in the documentary when he says "it's OK, I love you!" to the bears when they start to be agressive toward him.

Thanks Doodlers!

That's Hilarious!
I hope it doesn't sound too weird but...I think Tim T.would've laughed too.

Boris Hiestand said...

I love the way you colored the bear with the red scribbles. That's the difference between real creativity and.. ehr.. me.
Dammit you have to come up with that!

Stef said...

Thanks anonymous. Nope, doesn't sound weird, I'm pretty sure he was probably saying "it's OK, I love you!" while the bear was digesting him.

Thanks Boris!

Virginia Valle said...

j'adore le grizzly dans sa version final, le contraste du rouge et du bleu crée une connotation très affiche de pub qui me rappelle certains affiches 90's du Nancy Jazz Pulsation (ou je sais mes ref sont locales mais j'ai la Lorraine à coeur et j'adooore le NJP :)). Les encres (je suppose que ce sont des encres lavées) sont très chouettes aussi,quant aux planches de Birmingham, je les trouve ravissantes, bon parlons bien, parlons peu a quand ta premiere BD publiée?? Bises de ton admiratrice anonyme du 126 A Felsham Rd Putney!

Lovely image Stef, nice riff on Crookie's Holmes. The technique you've used is really cool & the layout/pose works beautifully. Now I must post my version -

Stef said...

Thanks Virginia and Monica.

Merci ma chere amie anonyme... moi aussi ca me rappelle les affiches de pubs, mais pas des annes 90 et pas du NJP de Nancy. Plutot les annees 60...en Auvergne.
Pas de projets de BD pour l'instant, mais sait on jamais, je serais plus interesse par un carnet de croquis avec un chouette editeur.
Bises!

Nice riff?! post yours, allez hop, now.

Smook said...

Well done! If I had seen your poster, I'd have gone to see the film for sure; now I'm gong to have too!

Very fun illustration.

Stef said...

Thank you Mike! that's a nice compliment, very flattered.

John T. Quinn 3rd said...

Very funny. the film had a much more serious point of view than your poster but, i believe you've got it right. maybe what he did was important work -i don't know- but, he sure was irritating. it's ok, i loved him in spite of his capacity to annoy.

Matthew Cruickshank said...

WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Astounding illustration, I can't bear it.

Tee hee

Alina Chau said...

V wicked!! Make me laugh!! Great clever design!! U make me want to pick up that documentary!

Justin Ridge said...

That's a great poster! I have to agree, it makes me want to see the documentary. I love how you played with the white lines against the graphic bear colors. Nice!

Stef said...

Thanks guys! I'm really flattered that my version of the poster makes you want to see the documentary.

Clio said...

Haha! That's great! I LOVE the texture on the bear, how did you do it??

Miah Alcorn said...

Great rough and an even better final! Wonderful work sir!

Eliane said...

I need to see that film. I only saw the trailer. I have a totally different idea about it now. Having seen your drawing.

UrbanBarbarian said...

Brilliant

Dan Thompson said...

I like the scribble shadows and colors. very nice.

Rob Corley said...

Awesome! I laughed out loud at this piece. I have seen Grizzley Man and actually met Timothy at Disney during his presentation during production on Brother Bear.
Crazy!

Stef said...

Thanks Clio, Eliane, and Urbanbarbarian!

Dan! How is life over at Cartoon Network?

Thanks Rob. How was the guy?
