The Usual Suspects – Ferguson – 11/20/2013
Odd City is extremely proud to produce a print of the iconic 1995 BRYAN SINGER film, THE USUAL SUSPECTS. This film is potentially one of the greatest mystery films of all time – in fact, just this year, the Writers Guild of America ranked THE USUAL SUSPECTS as #35 on its list of 101 Greatest Screenplays Ever Written. The film has a legacy that commands respect, and we hope our small contribution will be a worthy addition. Odd City thought long and hard about the right artist for this piece. “We chose Matt Ferguson because we wanted someone who had both minimalist sensibilities and an eye for crazy detail. If you look at some of his Avengers pieces you see his minimalist style. When you look at his Star Trek series you see a person who is capable of great detail. We felt that for this particular concept we needed somebody who could straddle the line between the two.” – Roman Morales – Read Matt’s comments on working on this print along with details on the release below the art.
|"Who is Keyser Soze? He is supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German. Nobody believed he was real."
Matt Ferguson on his inspiration: “From the beginning of the concept the design was very much a collaborative effort. I am used to working by myself so it was really cool to bounce off someone else and use their feedback to create something special. With this particular poster I really pushed myself in terms of the level of detail I would normally put into a screen print. I used some interesting techniques, especially within the fire elements to make it come alive. My hope is that people like it as much as I enjoyed making it!“The THE USUAL SUSPECTS print will release on Wednesday 11/20 at a random time.
