Looking For Lennon

Poster artwork for the John Lennon documentary, Looking For Lennon.

 

I was commissioned to create an image of John Lennon for the films theatrical poster. The documentary focuses on John’s early life and the tragedies that shaped him and his music. Its centered around Liverpool and features tales of him and his adventures growing up from some of his closest family and friends.

As the film covers various areas of Merseyside I wanted to encompass them all within the image of John Lennon. Looking at a map of Merseyside and the River Mersey, there’s a ‘chin’ section that stuck out to me and with a bit of tweaking John’s iconic profile became Merseyside.

 

It was a really fun job to work on and even though my illustration is a stylised version of a map, I can fully appreciate the awesome job cartographers do!
