“Movies are my religion and God is my patron. I’m lucky enough to be in the position where I don’t make movies to pay for my pool. When I make a movie, I want it to be everything to me; like I would die for it.” —Quentin Tarantino
I think all of these actors can tell you the feeling they have the first time they walk into my office and they see all the 60s western posters up and the blacksploitation posters up and all this viscera that doesn’t exist anymore in movie posters. Now everything just looks like Vanity Fair photo shoot, every single goddamn movie. The idea of drawn posters doesn’t happen anymore, and those were the posters! Those were really cool. But that style of viscera— whether it be a spaghetti western album covers, the blacksploitation album covers, the posters—I’m kind of trying to get at that. When my stuff pops off in the big way that it does or the imagery that I’m trying to evoke—like the costumes we employ in the film that always have a bit of a comic book panache—I’m trying to get those kinds of illustrations in life, in my flicks.
