"I am incredibly honored to have been asked to make a poster for the Coen Brothers newest film, “Hail Caesar!” to celebrate the movie's premier.
“The Starlet” is my movie poster portrait of Scarlett Johansson, in her role as the brassy, troubled movie star of 1950’s swimsuit extravaganzas.
I wanted to cast my poster in a Film Noir style. I limited the palette, but increased the number of colors printed to ten colors, to give my poster a classic movie poster appearance. Two metallics, two spot colors, and a sepia toned shadow glaze combine with five additional colors to create an atmospheric 1950’s Los Angeles backlot studio office."
