Come this March, there’s going to be a lot of Alex Pardee on screen during Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch. The artist not only contributed artwork for the genre bending trip through a mental institution, but his drawings are the basis for much of the marketing campaign. We’ve already seen the finished posters that Pardee did of all the characters from the film and now we’ve got images of his original, hand-drawn sketches of those posters. Check them out, and find out how you can see Pardee’s work up close and personal in Los Angeles this month, after the break.
Here are the images, which are a /Film Exclusive.
As you can see, Pardee didn’t do these on a computer like so many artists do now days. He hand drew these suckers. And Snyder must have liked them so much, he basically just printed them as is and handed them out at Comic-Con.
We’ve ran articles on Pardee’s art before and now seemed like the right time to do it again. Sucker Punch is out soon and Pardee has a show opening in Los Angeles on January 8 at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City called Vertigo: A Decade of Hunting Nightmares.
