Occasionally, when you happen across a particularly good one, looking at a series of work by an illustrator feels like glimpsing the world through their eyes for a moment, and that’s more or less how I feel looking at Faye Moorhouse’s new series Wonky Movie Poster Show. “I illustrated 20 movie posters,” she said in her email earlier this week. “They are weird and ugly and hopefully funny.” And I can testify that they are in fact all three.

From a sweet and naive watercolour of the Nymphomaniac poster in which the protagonist looks like she might have just trodden on something sharp (she hasn’t), to a fat, pink naked man lying prostrate on the cover of Supersize Me, Faye’s worldview is that perfectly un-selfaware combination of funny and odd and just generally great. If we had to look at the world through her eyes forever it might not be a bad thing.
