Only Lovers Left Alive

Here is my illustrated movie poster for the current East End Prints exhibition 'True Romance'! My poster is based on the Jim Jarmusch film 'Only Lovers Left Alive' which is centered around two centuries-old vampire lovers, Adam and Eve. The two are living half a world away from each other but Eve decides to visit Adam in Detroit after recognising that Adam is depressed and struggling to find his place in modern society (he's also a musician, hence the guitar). 

If you're in London the exhibition is running until the 17th of February so there's still plenty of time to check it out! There's some really amazing movie-inspired artwork on display so it's most definitely worth a visit.
