One of my favourites of the film noir genre gets the illustrated film poster treatment.

Besides from being a true classic of the 1940s film noir genre, Key Largo is also one of those great single setting films; trapping a stellar cast of volatile characters within the heart of a tropical storm, with tensions ready to burst. A favourite of the Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall double acts that should be on your must see list.

This new illustrated poster attempts to capture the posters of the 40s and was hand-drawn in ink and brush, with colour and text elements added in Adobe Photoshop.
