Film 101

I got the awesome opportunity to design artwork for the Channel 101 award statues for the 2011 Incredibly Prestigious Channy Awards! Julie Gollins built these amazing statues that actualy light up, no less, with my artwork representing each category. Considering it had to do with making films, I decided to have each award reference an early film star, creator or film.

ALSO! I decided to make it into a poster- get one here!

Each category left to right top row: Sexiest Moment, Best Writing, Best Supporting Actor, 2nd row Best Supporting Actress, Best Special Effects, Best Show, 3rd row Best Production Design, Best Actress, Best Actor, 4th row Best Editing, Best Failed Pilot, Best Director, bottom row Best Cinematography, Best Animation, and Best Action.

I chose Walt Disney and Mickey to represent animation. This is my first time drawing Walt too I realized.

Chose a sort of an unorthodox way to represent action with Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times. I think most people first think of fighting when they think of action, so I tried to convey it some other way.

Gone With the Wind seemed like the obvious choice for best production design, that movie is beautiful.

Citizen Kane is well-known for being on everyone's top film list, so it seemed synonymous with best show I thought.

Myke Chilian, Tommy Meehan, and Sevan Najarian won for McBusters! So they got to keep the Walt Disney the ones!

And here are some doodles:
