AMERICAN GODS poster

Today post is from the awesome art jam that John Struan from SUPER PUNCH put together about Neil Gaiman's AMERICAN GODS book (10th anniversary this year)
 So pop by the Super Punch to see what everyone else did!

The following poster that i did can also be found at the WoodenCrown store for the price of 10euros.


A mash-up of the Taxi Driver (1976 with Robert De Niro) and Salim the Ifrit (the Taxi Driver from Neil Gaiman's American Gods)

LIMITED EDITION OF 30.

Done for the American Gods Art Jam hosted by SUPER PUNCH
Each Poster is Numbered, Signed and Printed on Heavy 200gr watercolour paper (A3 size or 11.7 x 16.5 inches)
and personally walked to the nearest post office to be flown to you by airplane. :D

I went through a lot of concept to finally end up with this Taxi Driver mash-up.
here are a few of them...
As you can see i was focused on Salim the Taxi Driver and was pondering the idea of his own family run Taxi company for the tribute pic.

But nearing the end i found one of the Taxi Driver's movie posters and it just clicked.
