The Art of Ken Taylor

I’ve featured Ken Taylor previously on my blog when he did a great Halloween poster, but his latest collection of movie related posters that’s just been launched on Mondo.com is truly amazeballs. The way in which he captures the evil in Hannibal Lectors eyes sends a shiver down my spine, I think also the vengeful determination he shows in Rambo’s stare is equally as good…man I love this guy’s work…can you tell 🙂

…check out the rest

Some cool close up detail shots as well by photographer Billy Garrett.
