The Big Sleep

Chantrell's original prototype artwork (16"x 21") for the double-bill Quad poster of "The Big Sleep" & "High Ballin" (1978).

As comparison with the finished Quad shows, Chantrell's initial conceptual design "nailed" the brief. It was Chantrell's ability to quickly grasp what was required, present an acceptable prototype & then translate this into an attractive (& commercially effective) finished art, that made him such a popular choice with commissioning agents. The artwork is a mx of colour wash, magic marker & pen & ink laid to tracing paper & card.
