“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

Ballad In Blood


I’ve been doing quite a few mediabook and DVD covers for German distributor 8-Films and this is the latest. Like all the other jobs I’ve done for them, Ballad In Blood is a well made horror movie with great imagery and also like all the others it boasted a goddawful, boring poster for its cinema release.
I can’t recall when this trend for pedestrian posters started, or why, but one thing’s for certain; you’ll never get a pedestrian poster out of the ol’ Rickster, not unless you want me to paint somebody running over one!
