I worked with Studio Ghibli and Mondo to create new, official posters for two of my favourite films, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. 

These Japanese editions will be available exclusively at comic con. English versions will be available online at a later date. 

Once again, a big thank you to the folks at Ghibli and Mondo for giving me the chance to do this. 

Presale info here!

Fantastic.

The birth of movie merchandising


The Lost World is believed to be one of the first films to have a product tie-in. The movie was released in 1925, at the height of a “puzzle craze" in the United States, and plans were quickly drawn up to bring the two together.

While today we are all too familiar with the merchandising associated with films (usually the big blockbusters) watching the sincere and up front use of it in The Lost World’s promo film is almost sweet compared to today’s more subtle and sneaky product placement. Today, even films that don’t seem like they’d lend themselves naturally to merchandising still seem to find a way.

We came to Argentina to ‘defamiliarize’ ourselves by moving away from the spaces—and hopefully the preoccupations—of the world we know so well.
