I would love to see Tim Bradstreet do the Constantine posters
John Constantine, another character close to Bradstreet's heart, will stroll onto movie screens next year. Bradstreet provides the covers for Vertigo's monthly "Hellblazer" book and would love to do some promotional work for "Constantine," the film adaptation of "Hellblazer" starring Keanu Reeves, which is currently in production. "I think it would be an absolute trip to get a shot at doing a one-sheet for that. Send [Lauren] Donner a bunch of mail. I may be known for doing a certain kind of thing with the regular covers, which may not be the kind of thing they are looking for, but I think it's fairly clear that I can grasp what it takes to bring it to another level. I'd love a shot at that. I know the nuts and bolts of that character inside and out. Applying it to Keanu would be a fun challenge and a great opportunity," Bradstreet explained.
As you may know, I love Bradstreet's work and have even picked up one of the artist's proofs of my favorite Hellblazer cover.
Check out the whole article to see his work on the Punisher movie posters.

You're updating as I'm reading...LOL
Thanks for the links. I hope he does have some involvement with the advertising material. I think that would be very appropriate. But I guess it depends on which direction they're going stylistically.
But YOU did this terrific pic! Wow! Forget Tim Bradstreet, get krix!
Seriously, I like TB's work also, I remember your buying the proof cover, and it's soooo nice to hear him say how much he'd like to do artwork with Keanu in it (well, who wouldn't? he's certainly been my muse)!!
Meanwhile, bring on the krix/Constantine artwork...!
Does anyone know contact info for Donner? I'd definitely send a message. I think Tim Bradstreet is an AMAZING artist.
krix, your transposing of Keanu into TB art is wild! It looks like it could be the original.
Nudel, I was worblurking at your site today and I was thinking that you are quite the artist too.
All this cartoonage going on makes me feel like photoshopping! :) No time right now. I had time on the weekend, but wasn't in the mood since I was too busy oogling the becky Vegas gig photos. :)
I would send an email if anyone knows the address.
Did I say I wanted to see Hellboy but I couldn't find anybody to go with. I think it may be out of the theater now...drat!
krix, this is just beautiful.
Krix, you're amazing!
What other talents do you still keep hidden from us besides being
the blog goddess and a bass merchant, among other things?
Thx so much!
krix, any chance (pretty-please?) that you would do an 8.5 x 11 version of this, like the calendars? I understand about the artwork copyright Tim Bradstreet yaddayaddayadda, but just for us fans?
I'd dl that in a heartbeat and print it out at work, and put it on the bulletin board above my desk...
If you click through to the original, you see that it's the same size as the edit so I can't really enlarge it. You've given me an idea to do something Bradstreet-inspired, though. As soon as I catch up on my bass lessons.
