In their original form, my Revisiting Cinefex articles – on the first 40 issues of the classic visual effects magazine – were just plain text, with no images except for the cover of the issue under discussion. Once I’d concluded my retrospective odyssey, I broke the articles into headed sections (one for each movie) and set myself the task of drawing a little icon to illustrate each.
Although I made a good start, other jobs kept getting in the way. In the end I took the easy option and dropped in movie poster images instead. The drawings vanished into a folder, and only saw the light of day again when I stumbled over them again last week.
While it’s unlikely I’ll ever finish this particular job, it seems a shame to have these little sketches languishing in the dark. So here they are. How many movies can you identify?
