New for 2012: Forrest Gump Limited Edition Print


(Clicking to enlarge is highly recommended!)

A poster always looks its best with a
classic black frame and white mount combo!

So 2011 was crazy for me and ended on a huge high as got married, went on honeymoon, moved house and celebrated Christmas all in the same month! Apparently its 2012 already and I've realised it's been a while since my last poster release but I am glad to reveal my latest design... based on the classic movie... Forrest Gump!!!

Released in 1994, Forrest Gump is an iconic piece of storytelling that is just as good today as it was 18 years ago. 
After watching it recently it dawned on my how varied Forrest's life was. He had more jobs than I've had hot dinners and I knew there was a poster in there somewhere, the problem was figuring out an idea to bring it all together.

Eventually it seemed obvious... Forrest was an exceptional guy with a fine array of talents and the best thing is, they all begin with the letter 'F'! Who could forget Forrest the football player who couldn't stop running or the famous moment that Forrest flashes his buttocks at the white house. So here it is for all to see, 'The Finest Features of Forrest Gump' available as a 24 x18" limited edition print run of 50, all signed and numbered. As always, once this batch has gone, thats it, there will



EDIT: The Forrest Gump poster is now sold out, thanks to all who managed to nab one!

  3. A boy was bagging groceries at a supermarket. One day the store installed a machine for squeezing fresh orange juice. Intrigued, the young man asked if he could be allowed to work the machine, but his request was denied.
    Said the store manager, "Sorry, kid, but baggers can't be juicers."

    Sorry, it's the best I got!

    Love the poster!

  11. A little boy and his dad take a walk in a port.
    The boy shouts out: "Daddy, look at the bird!"
    "This is not a simple bird it's a seagull",
    "Oh! Daddy look at the big boat here!"
    "It's called a yacht", the dad answers.
    "Daddy, how do you spell it?" the boy asks, puzzled...
    "Well, indeed you were right, this is a boat".

  15. The one with Gump in China as a ping pong player with the squinty eyes is um...highly questionable.

  16. Thanks for that comment Anon, just to be clear, the illustration of Forrest playing table tennis is based on the cardboard cut out that he is given in the movie (you can see it here... http://bit.ly/HtY0om)

    It is in no way a reference to the Chinese, hopefully that clears up any misunderstanding.
