Gabz should really get into the handbill game. His likenesses are so good. Would love a CZJ handbill and a Michonne from his WD print.

If it ain't broke. But like many others he does need to look at other compositions, I really want to see a 24x36 landscape print...

In the Kickstarter video, Turrel talks a lot about why Dzxtinkt chose to do the Mask of Zorro project. Basically, we feel like the alternative movie poster market is lacking diversity. Zorro is the perfect cross cultural icon to do a poster for because he has the power to bridge the diversity gap and he leaves an epic "Z" while doing so. The character has been around for 95 years and The Mask of Zorro is a fan favorite Zorro film, so this project is definitely for the fans of the character and those who love the film. The Mask of Zorro is a classic film, so an alternative movie poster for it is long overdue.

Zorro is a very sharp print, but his compositions are so photo realistic anymore it makes me curious about his creative approach nowawdays ... especially with how many of these he's cranking out. Sorta miss his previous "jagged"-style line work, even though it was a bit rough ... it at least gave it his own distinctive style.

Frankly, it seems like all of these commissions (direction) have beaten this style out of him. Moreover, it seems like people's tastes in alternative movie posters are becoming less and less alternative, and gravitating more towards the typical one-sheet norm.

Just my observations, and probably off base ... but again, nice looking Zorro poster.

Awesome poster and if I was Gabz I would stick with this style but I've always been more of an old school than an alternative fan.

Me thinks not. Feel like that was still in Mondo's transitional period. Love that one though, still regret not picking one up.
