The Holy Mountain.

Click the image for a larger version. Do it. For serious.

Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain (1973) is an assault to the eyes with a story that barely holds everything together. Ancient perverts with glass eyes! A room full of cake-faced Jesuses! Half-bearded men showering you in milk from their screaming cat tits! So yeah, it's pretty much one of my favorite films. My Illustration Concepts II final was a series of magazine ads for the movie. I chose interesting but not super-aggressive images because I wanted something to intrigue, not necessarily shock. The end products are kind of okay; I would have liked to have more time to clean them up. I enjoy the images as a group more than standalones, so that's how I'm presenting them. Here's the trailer, in case you're super-curious:

These were my studio professors for the past year, if you guys are interested in taking a peek at their work: Deanna Staffo, Brian Ralph, Daniel Krall, Ted McGrath, Jeremy Botts (my one Graphic Design teacher this year), Allan Comport (actually, he's an artists' rep; his site is an interesting business resource, as is that of the company he works with, Shannon Associates). Thanks for not failing me.

Also, congratulations to the Class of '09. I got this for you.
