As you may know, Berlin favourite Electrick Children is out this Friday, 13th July. To celebrate the occasion popular illustrator Sam Gilbey has created a brilliant bespoke poster for the film.
Electrick Children stars Julia Garner, Rory Culkin, Liam Aiken and Billy Zane. It tells of a visceral journey through a young girls discovery of a new world, having grown up in a fundamentalist Mormon community in Utah. Our review is here.
Sam’s unique illustrations have appeared in numerous publications, both on and offline all over the globe, from magazines such as Computer Arts and Wired UK, to several books, exhibitions, comics, and also on television and in a movie test shoot for Working Title. His observational, colourful and distinct painterly style often draws on, and celebrates popular culture, whether that’s movies, video games, and/or the occasional large robot. If for some reason you wanted to sum his style up in two words, ‘painted comics’ might just cover it.
