King of New York
|King of Newyork
A DVD cover design for Arrow Videos re-release. it was great opportunity to illustrate Christopher Walken in this one, so I wanted him to be a central prominent element, with his 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.
I wanted to get the across the idea of the city from the gutter right up to the bright lights and heights of the city’s big money skyscrapers and of course Walken as king of it all! I then pulled out the other central characters of Laurence Fishburne and Wesley Snipes and then a old good car chase to balance out the heads.
