The Birds Poster

This one is the largest piece I've done in, I'd say, ten years. It's a 16" x 20" pen and black ink, and it has taken me quite some time to complete. The above scan, done on a shoddy ol' Oce B&W oversize scanner, is terribly rough and grimy, so I assure you, this piece looks much, much better in person.
I feel I should also clarify the date. There actually was a showing of "The Birds" at The Alabama Theatre last year, which I attended, but I was not commissioned by them to do this. I did it for personal reasons, and it made sense to me to put the date of the showing in with the film details. You'll notice that I didn't really start work on this until after they had screened it. So there you go.

Here's an old progress shot from a couple months back.
