Thanks so much for the shoutout! I love this site - I'm honored to be in such wonderful company ;-)

Hopefully I'll have this series finished by May ... I've mocked up most of them and a few in particular are turning out pretty zany. Although considering the source material, it's not surprising. ;-) I plan on posting OHMSS and FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE sometime in the next week.

Thanks again!

Interesting design work. I'm glad Ridge you mentioned John Barry on your site. I also would agree with you on OHMSS being one of my favorite films and scores in the series.

Nice ! Here's my tribute to the film (among other).

Crikey on a bikey. You need to send these to Ian Fleming Publications now. Before they start bringing out the books with stock library photograph covers again!
These are terrific. No cliches! Hooray!

Haha ... "crikey on a bikey" ... I need to get that into my vocabulary STAT!

Actually, it's funny ... I've been showing these (including the dozen or so that are mocked-up but not posted yet) to some of my licensing clients/partners and one of them brought up the fact that MGM plans on a big 50th Anniversary celebration all year next year. I wish I could somehow tie into that, although I don't know how they would fit exactly. Although I did design all of the logos and general art, etc. for the Peanuts brand's 60th anniversary last year and I'm still amazed where that stuff randomly shows up - toys, candy wrappers, city buses, etc.

It would be pretty cool to be a part of the Bond anniversary somehow, I won't lie! :) I just don't have any contacts there.

And thanks to everyone for the sweet comments! You're lighting a fire under me to finish them all quicker! Thanks again to Peter and to everyone who emailed me such lovely feedback!

FYI ... I posted FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE - one of the more psychedelic ones in my series. :)

As for the rest, if you want to know when the rest come out, feel free to follow me on Twitter or Tumblr. Some folks also asked about my process for coming up with these, so I'm thinking of posting a work-in-progress thing on my blog after I finish Moonraker.

The Goldfinger artwork is truly innovative and captures your eye. A good mix of colours that is still subtle and subdued enough to fit with the tone of a Bond movie!
