No matter how simple or elaborate a piece of art is, chances are the artist behind it made twenty different versions before arriving at what you see. Other times, they work on something and are forced to scrap it for one reason or another. This happens with everything: music, movies, posters, books. Most artists would never let the public see their unfinished works, but in the case of pop culture artist Olly Moss, he decided to let us in on the process.
Moss recently blogged about several projects he was working on during 2012 that either were either cancelled, scrapped or completely reimagined. Projects that weren’t even close to complete, just ideas and simple sketches. Normally, you’d think, “who cares?” But Moss was working on some truly incredible stuff: A Lawrence of Arabia poster, an Akira poster, a Blade Runner poster, Dr. No, Mad Men and more. It leads one to wonder why most of this stuff didn’t happen.
We asked Mr. Moss for comments on all of these posters and he was happy to oblige. After the jump, check out Moss’s incomplete work and read his comments on each. Read More »

This morning Megan Fox, Ed Helms, and Jessica Alba announced the nominations for the 2013 Golden Globes. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the event, is famous for nominating films and performances simply based on their star factor — if there’s an actor that members of the HFPA want to hang out with, they’re sure to get a nomination.
But the HFPA is great at putting on a show, and so the Golden Globes generate a lot of attention every year. And, as the NY Times points out, with the Globes nominations coming just days before Oscar nomination voting starts, there’s a possibility that nominations here could affect Oscar voting. The Best Picture nomination set includes what is already becoming a standard set of awards favorites, such as Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty, but there are also nominations for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, and Django Unchained. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen picked up a few nominations, actually, which was one of the big surprises.
The Golden Globes will air on January 13, 2013, hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. The full nomination list is below. Read More »
