As a polymer clay artist, I try, where possible to work on personal creative projects as it really helps to keep my work fresh and interesting – and what could be more perfect to make than alternative movie posters?

I tend to take quite a while in choosing what posters to work on, as all of the ‘polymer posters’ I’ve produced are for films that have creatively inspired me in some way - as it just seems pointless to invest so much time and energy into a film that just doesn’t work for me, as my posters can take up to a week to make.

Next it's a case of focusing on which character or characters I'd like to feature on my poster, and then I'll get working on their polymer clay representations. Once they're done, I'll generally have a few photographing sessions before finishing up the final image in Photoshop...

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (Wes Anderson, 2004)

Steve Zissou here was one of the first models I worked on for this project - and he's still one of my favourites.

Filth (Jon S. Baird, 2013)

I really enjoyed Filth - so much so, I made two versions of a poster. Here's wee Robbo flipping us the birdie - such a brilliant scene I was keen to capture in a poster. I think the absurdity of the clay character and rude gesture really works here.

Lost in Translation (Sofia Coppola, 2003)

Yeah, I made Bill Murray twice. I may even have to make him again. Not even sorry.

Frank (Lenny Abrahamson, 2014)

Frank is my film of the year. I love it so much - and it gets better on repeat views. Chinchilla! Chinchilla!

Breaking Bad (Vince Gilligan et al, 2008-13)

My first TV series 'polymer poster' - I *had* to do Breaking Bad, right?

Here's my second Filth poster. This took around a week to produce - but I'm so glad I invested the additional time as I think it paid off.

Utopia (Dennis Kelly, 2013-14)

Aww, man - no Series 3?? Seriously????

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Ron Howard, 2000)

And, last up, as it's Christmas..... ;^)

I hope you like them. If you're interested, there’s a series of horror and dark genre posters over here too.
