Last night was the finale of the second season of Homeland. To say that I am a huge fan would be an understatement! Inspired, I set out to create a series of designs to celebrate the award-winning show. Playing off of the subtle theme of jazz that appears the storyline, I designed 12 vintage record covers inspired by the TV series. Let me know what you think.
Last year I designed a poster series inspired by Dexter. My artwork was so well received, that Showtime invited me to make a guest appearance on the show! You can see me above, searching the crime scene with a flashlight.
I also walk behind Deb and Laguerta in the hallway of the police department. Don’t blink. It was such a fun experience to be a part of the show. When I designed the prints, I never imagined that they would land me a part on the program. So cool.
I even got to pal around with Dexter himself, aka Michael C. Hall – who was cool enough to customize my outgoing voicemail greeting. Which you can listen to below.
The poster series that I created for Dexter was inspired by mid-century modern design and particularly the work of Saul Bass – who developed both static graphics as well as animated title sequences. I’ve always wanted to design a title sequence, so it seemed like this would be a good opportunity. I collaborated with my friends at Fashion Buddha to create an alternative title sequence for Dexter using the artwork that I developed for the posters. This is what I imagine the Dexter title sequence might look like if the show had aired in the 60’s.
So…after Lost finished I started to get into Dexter…and I have to say, I’m a big fan! I was so inspired that I decided to create one poster design for each season – highlighting the iconic moments from the show. This idea took a little longer than I thought but I love how they turned out. Let me know what you think!
Leave a comment and let me know if you’d be interested in these prints. Thinking about doing a limited edition. Follow me on Twitter or check back to the blog and I will let you know when we make them available. Thanks!
UPDATE 10/8: THESE PRINTS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON ON THE SHOWTIME WEBSITE!!! Details to come!
Rachel Nicole, just left a comment on this post mentioning the potential for this art as DVD packaging. I thought it was a great idea, so I mocked up this concept. How cool would this be as a collector’s edition?
