The Last Train From Moscow

Client: Personal
Year completed: 2011
Skills used:

My second fake movie poster. I came up with the title first, and then worked from there. I liked the Kremlin font, which is very bold, and decided to try something with high contrast and a bold look. I searched all over for old Russian trains for a base to draw from. And then i discovered the very short-lived jet train! A quick history (from a Gizmodo article): US built a jet train in 1966 that traveled 184mph (286km/h) which sparked a Russian company to try it too. In 1971 they got their train up to a max of 154mph (249km/h)… Anyway, i really like the odd style of the train with two giant jet engines housed up on top. I thought it would work great for my poster idea. I’m happy with how it turned out 🙂
