Dr Heckyl and Mr Hype

Original Chantrell concept artwork for the Quad poster for "Dr Heckyl and Mr Hype" (1980), the spoof horror film starring Oliver Reed.


Such concept "roughs" were commissioned to be shown to distributors who would then accept, reject or request changes. In this case Chantrell obviously nailed his brief & was instructed to provide the finished artwork which he duly did (see an example of the printed Quad below - a similar Quad is currently available on http://www.chantrellposter.com/Dr-Heckyl-And-Mr-Hype-Chantrell-Proof-Quad-Poster-1980-Original/1186). For the concept & finished artwork Chantrell was paid £425. The print run for the Quad was only 1,000 but of course there was only ever one rough & one finished piece of artwork ever produced.

 

The artwork is mostly magic marker on layout paper.
