50 Baddies Design Print by Robert Ball

Design, baddies, robertball

Yesterday I shared a design of Robert Ball's in the Jason Inspired Friday the 13th Designs. I really enjoyed his slightly fractured illustration style, especially the "50 Baddies" series he started as a part of film-themed illustrations for a local exhibition.

I stopped back over at the designer's blog, and he just announced that he will be selling prints of the characters compiled into single posters. Robert, who is based in London, will be sharing a shop link soon for the signed and numbered limited run of 50, 40x50cm Giclee Prints of Darkness on snow white archival paper. The colors and interpretations of the villains are wonderful. Watch his blog, This is Where I Draw the Line, for details.

Can you identify all the baddies? I know quite a few, but I must admit I can't name all of them. It would be cool if the poster had some sort outlined key on the back.

He also offered up one of his baddies, Hal, as an free download for an unnerving phone wallpaper.
