Poster Posse artist Sharm Murugiah is embarking on a new project in an effort to allow illustrators to showcase their work for the attention of the publication industry. Sharm is an illustrator, graphic designer and budding art director and he wants to help share the talents of other up and coming artists in a publication format.
Called “This Must Be The Place” the magazine will start out as a non profit magazine that uses preexisting written reviews for what Sharm feels are “the best movies of the year.” Artists will be asked to interpret a specific film into an illustrated graphic. Sharm will be choosing films that he feels fit well with certain artists styles.
He is letting the artists decide how they come up with their final piece for the mag. “It could be a moment in time from the film or an ensemble describing characters, events or ideas from the film.” One thing he wants to make clear is “this is an illustration for a magazine it is NOT a poster so no film names, actor names etc..“
Upon completion each magazine that will be sent to various members of the publishing industry so that each artist’s talent can be showcased. As a participating member, each artist will receive a complimentary copy of the mag as well. Stay tuned to BLURPPY.COM for more info on this project as it develops.
