Stephen Wildish's 'Film Alphabet' Poster Series


Posted: 03/15/2012 11:28 am

Stephen Wildish is an artist, designer and illustrator who has worked for the likes of BBC and Canon. But even the most professional artist has to let lose every once in a while. For Wildish, that every once in a while is every Friday.

Wildish started his a "Friday Project" where he produces prints and posters of his musings. His most recent creative endeavor is the "Horror Film Alphabet" as the eighth in his "Film Alphabet" series. After his work started gaining recognition, he decided to sell his prints.

"I started the 'Friday Project' as a way to get those silly ideas out, the sort of thing I couldn't possibly get past a client," he said in an email interview with The Huffington Post. "Although ironically, currently it's one of the main sources of work for me."

The series includes the "Horror Film Alphabet," the "Bond Film Alphabet," and the past six decades starting with 50s. The first edition in the series was the "1980s Film Alphabet," inspired by a throwback hankering for a throwback classic of the decade.

"I did the first one as I had a craving to draw Marty Mcfly from 'Back to the Future,' (I could see in my head his smashing red bomber jacket) and I went on a bit of a nostalgia fest from there," he said.
