  • Dennis The Menace Finished Illustration
    This is the illustration that was used for the Dennis The Menace movie poster. It includes Walter Matthau who was the star of the movie. Studio suits believe that posters need stars. I find it amazing that anyone went to see Anatomy of a Murder, Vertigo, West Side Story or Exodus. Saul Bass didn't include any of the stars in his designs for those posters. What was he thinking?
  • A League of Their Own
    In 1992, I was asked by Columbia Pictures to create an image for the movie, A League of Their Own, that had the look of illustrations during that era. The advertising art director at Columbia and the Director of the movie, Penny Marshall, loved the illustration but the suits decided it wouldn't work because it didn't show any of the Stars. Penny Marshall now owns the painting.
