Harkonnen Alone

This week I'm showin' a little process stuff on a recent project. The above, larger illustration was done as the cover for a movie that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend: Jodorowsky's Dune.

The movie, directed by Frank Pavich, is a documentary covering the rise and fall of Jodorowsky's ill-fated adaptation of Frank Herbert's masterwork. The story itself is a real kicker, not to mention hitherto unseen Moebius concept art (some of which I actually colored for a interior sequence) suffuses the film. I mean, it was a collaboration with three of the greatest Genre-giants of our time, how could you go wrong?! Moebius's take on Baron Harkonnen alone makes it worth seeing! (Sidenote: I'm hereby trademarking the name Harkonnen Alone® for my next band.)

Anyways, it'll be coming to the States soon, check it out. You can see a mock-up of the final poster on the bottom if you want to get more of the full effect.
