King of New York was a DVD cover design for Arrow Videos re-release.

it was great to do Christopher Walken in this one so i wanted him quite prominent which that great expressive face in all its glory looming over New York. After watching the film i saw a lot of the scenes where bathed in a real strong purple/magenta lighting so i used that for the inspiration in the colour pallet.
with the street view i wanted to get the across the idea of the city from the street up to the bright lights of the citys skyscrapers and showing Walken as king of it all. then pulling out the big characters of Laurence Fishburne and Wesley Snipes, i need some sexiness in the mix too so i brought in the girl to the mix and then a old good car chase to balance out the heads.
