I was asked to be a part of an exhibition in Denver, Colorado this month and design a film poster for my pick of an Asylum film. After much thought it was decided to work up something for the film called Dragon Crusaders. Luckily this was on my Netflix queue, so I gave it a whirl. The camp is amazingly hilarious. I was sold. Without further ado I’d like to introduce my poster:
Many of the Asylum peeps will be in attendance and they will be screening some of their films at the show. Here is a little more info about the festivities:
