Captain America Poster Comps. 2010. Gouache on bristol board. 11 × 17.″

Captain America opens today and I highly recommend it. Aside from being entertaining throughout, it was absolutely beautiful to look at, from the period designs to the cinematography. Be sure to stay for the Avengers teaser after the credits! Have a great weekend!

  1. I've just come back form CA The First Avenger, well the film makers clearly took a long hard look at Mythos - as indeed the Cap himself said. Big kudos. Cheers Nick

  2. Thanks, Nick! I was so happy to be a part of the film, no matter how small. I can barely wait for the Avengers.

  3. This movie captures the the spirit of not only Captain America, but the spirit of a people who were ready to make the sacrafices necessary for freedom. I can understand why cynical critics would recoil at Captain America as a symbol in this move. But this is a testament to the movie, which shows the true depth of the character in a very realistic way
