This is the artwork for Bob Freeman Exterminator for Hire, (at the moment) it seems to be a 'lost film' I completed the artwork back in 2017 (I'm posting this up in 2019!) The film is a comedy horror, come creature feature, monster hunter film. So I wanted to really draw on those elements and make a fun over the top more action-packed and fantastical than they appear in the film, which is all part of the joke as the film is a horror comedy. So a classic style poster art piece could really provide that, so I created something reminiscent of Enzio Sciotti or Claudio Cassaro VHS cover artworks.
I made illustrated Bob Freeman as a cooler, muscular, heroic character than he ever is in the film (again this all plays into the humour of the film) I then surrounded him with the various creatures they encounter and battle (I have actually illustrated 2 demon garden Gnomes now, also see Book of Monsters).
For the colour pallet again I wanted something more classical with muted tones and a very 70s B movie title treatment.
