Remember . . .

Remember, remember, the 5th of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot.  I see no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot!  And to commemorate Guy Fawkes Day this year, I’m posting some of the most amazing V for Vendetta art I could scrounge up.  Now V for Vendetta-themed artworks on the web are about a dime a dozen, but there are some really fantastic pieces out there, and here are just a few.

First, here is art from the original source, David Lloyd.  This is cover art for the collected miniseries (graphic novel) created and written by the brilliant Alan Moore:

There were several official posters released for the film, but I quite like this one, which has a classic political propaganda poster feel to it.  Actually, a lot of these posters do, which makes perfect sense.

Another sweet poster design for the film.  This one emphasizes the mysterious nature of V himself.

Alejandro Fernandez’s poster again utilizes old political propaganda art to great effect.  You can really see the influence of Constructivism here.

This poster by Marko Manev may possibly be my favorite.  I say possibly because there are so many good ones I just can’t decide.  But this is seriously gorgeous and definitely in my top five.

The weathered look and the simplicity of this poster design by Edward Julian Moran II work well together.

Here’s another minimalist design that was well executed.

Blues and browns are often a good color combo, and this piece by Stephanie Zuppo is no exception on that count.

Finally, this piece by Shepard Fairey, the king of Neo-Constructivism, is not about V for Vendetta itself, but it uses the V mask to excellent effect nonetheless while riffing on Obama’s famous “Hope” presidential campaign artwork.
