The Thing

The ultimate in artistic terror!  Universal calls one day and asks: 'Are you willing to do a poster for 'The Thing' to be delivered first thing in the morning?'  They said they had no reference material, no concept, no idea.  Same basic story as the original '51 film, we trust you, we'll have it picked up first thing in the morning if you can do it.  One day and night to conceive from out of the blue and to paint it as well.  He did it and it was done so quickly and picked up so early that as it went straight to the seperators for printing, the acrylic paint was still wet and stuck to the glass at the seperator's.  Don't ask what is the standard way of doing business in the industry, there is no standard way.
