In a super-taxing effort to not completely geek-out, last night I had the pleasure of hanging out in Hollywood with Kurt Russell and a bunch of other amazing people. We all had dinner, got to try his new wine, hear some hilarious stories, and got some shots of him holding THE THING poster I designed. Said he loved it.

R.J. MacReady holding my poster! What the hell?! Still can’t believe this happened to some kid from Dartmouth.

A huge thanks to my pal Russell Brown for instigating such an awesome night, and new pal (and photo titan) Greg Gorman for hosting. I’ll never forget this.

    James, WELL DONE!!! I hope this makes up for your frustrations last year! I glad for you, man!

  2. Well done, dude. Well done indeed.

  3. AMAZING! Congrats James!

  4. What’s that in my eye? Sand. Yeah, just a speck in my eye making me tear up.

    James, this is every artist’s dream—to create something out of pure inspiration, and have it loved by the one that inspired it. So awesome. You deserve it, man!

  5. You lucky dude, life is good!!

  6. Nice work repping the Maiden.

  7. You lucky git!

    I’m glad that opportunity materialized. I was with the Russell Brown group at MAX and you rocked it, James.

  9. Booyeah Stuntman Mike!

  10. Nicely done, sir.

    It’s so awesome to see you meet Kurt Russell, where you designed about the best looking movie poster of J. Carpenter’s The Thing I’ve seen, featuring him. It must have been a blast! :)

  12. That is such a great poster! Well Done. Kurt Russell has done some amazing movies so far over his career. From his first appearance in ‘Denis the Menace’ and his lucky break in ‘It Happened At The Worlds Fair’ with the King Elvis Presley; to his last movie (as of this post) “The Battered Bastards Of Baseball”. But of all his great movies that for me stands out most has to be ‘The Thing’ A classic actor that is for sure! And once again a very cool poster!
