Terrence Malick’s Moby Dick

About two weeks ago, the esteemed film critic Matt Zoller Seitz – who currently writes for The New York Times – asked me to do a lead illustration for his essential film blog The House Next Door. When I got the email, partly inspired by my recent Negative Space cartoons, I gulped so hard that Matt may have heard it from overseas.

As soon as he started mentioning key words like “minimalist,” “violence,” “obsession” and (most importantly) “Saul Bass,” however, I knew this was an offer I could impossibly refuse.

To read more about the fascinating film project below and to see my poster in a size that does the epic subject more justice, get thee to The House Next Door (clicking it there will enlarge it)!

    Very, very nice Peet! Have you ever read the novel? It’s a…whale of a novel.

    This is a beautiful poster! I like it. There some kind of Soviet Constructivism in there 😉

    Jim:
    I haven’t read the novel, but I’ve eaten a piece of white whale once. Does that count? (That’s a joke, people.)

    Thanks, Harry!

    Hey Guy,

    I would go see that movie. No Download, No Rental -pay the $20 to see it on the big screen. This movie should exist.

    Thanks,
