Yesterday saw the trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron burst online and as a result, the interweb starting screaming in excitement. Age Of Ultron certainly looks like an exciting movie and superhero fans were salivating at teases of the ‘Hulkbuster’ Iron Man armour as well as plenty of conflict between Captain America, Thor the rest of the team. Viewers were even treated to glimpses at new characters to the Marvel cinematic world, Quiksilver and Scarlet Witch as well as the reassurance that Nick Fury was still around to support. Noticeably absent was The Vision, Paul Bettany’s step up from voicing Tony Stark’s household security system to full on Avenger status seems to be under lock and key at the moment..
In honour of the darker, sinister tone of the movie, British artist Doaly has cooked up this rather tasty Avengers: Age Of Ultron poster, just for a bit of fun. Take a look!
Doaly’s poster playfully riffs on the song hauntingly crooned by James Spader’s menacing Ultron throughout the trailer and features the villain standing atop a broken and beaten Avengers.
When I was young, there were very few films that my parents wouldn’t allow me to watch. In fact, the only film I remember specifically not being allowed to watch was Pulp Fiction. At the time I was distraught, with hindsight it was just good parenting. Even at the age of 10 I had still developed a keen interest in films and something about the marketing for the movie just grabbed me!
With Pulp Fiction reaching the grand old age of 20 this year, it is deservedly getting some artistic attention. One of our favourites so far is this great poster by Doaly! Read on for the full reveal!
With Marvel celebrating their 75th Anniversary this year and Daredevil scheduled to hit our screens via Netflix, Doaly has produced two cleverly stylised pieces dedicated to ‘The Man Without Fear’ himself.
In case you didn’t know, Daredevil was created in 1964 by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett, not without a little input from comics legend Jack Kirby. He has enjoyed a long history of well written storylines, often with a much grittier edge.
Here is what Doaly had to say about his pieces:
“The basic concept for my pieces was to play with traditional eye tests as part of the new Daredevil series marketing as Daredevil/Matt Murdock is blind himself, so I thought this would be a clever nod to his unique gifts.”
We have been following the progress of movie poster documentary Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six by filmmaker Kevin Burke with keen interest here at Cult Collective. As avid fans of alternative and illustrated movie posters, we just can’t wait to see the movie!
Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six, which was funded through a very successful Kickstarter campaign, features a whole host of top talent from the industry, from artists to filmmakers including Ghoulish Gary Pullin, Jason Edmiston, Phantom City Creative, Andrea Alvin, Joshua Budich, Justin Ishmael of Mondo, Paul Ainsworth, Matt Ryan Tobin and many, many more.
Director Kevin Burke recently got in touch to share with us a brand new trailer for the movie, produced by Post No Joes, that we are excited to share with you!
I love Batman and it’s clear that artist and graphic designer Doaly feels the same way. After producing an amazing set of minimalist posters for Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, Doaly is back at it with his new series “Gotham Nemesis” first premiered on the excellent Xombie Dirge.
Here’s what Doaly had to say on his Blog;
I know what your thinking god this guy loves Batman, I’m guilty as charged I have to sat on all counts. For this set I wanted to explore more the relation ship of Batman arch nemesis’s but I wanted it to be a little fun and personal at the same time so its the villains defacing the image of batman in their own way.
There is a lot villains out there so you may see me adding to this set over time, until then stay tuned to this bat channel.
I know, I know, the pun was lousy. However, teeth certainly are a key theme in these three awesome new posters by Birmingham, England based graphic designer, Doaly.
We have featured a lot of Doaly’s minimalist inspired work here on Cult Collective recently, chiefly because it is bloody brilliant, just check out his Dark Knight posters! His latest offerings for The Walking Dead and The Wolf of Wall Street are no exception.
This great piece is simple and engaging. Here’s Doaly’s words on the inception of this piece;
The Funny story about this piece is that it started out as an idea I had over breakfast for a Little Red Riding Hood piece but by the time I had finished my serial it had turned into a Wolf of Wall Street Piece, I wanted to show the wolf on the icon Wall Street but I didn’t just wanted have it walk the street so I chose to hide it in the negative space created by the architecture. oh and for those of you who are wondering I still intend to do a Little Red piece in the future.
The Walking Dead kicks off with the second part of season 4 on FX on Monday February 10th, here in the UK. Only a day after the states rather than the painstaking 5 day wait of previous seasons.
I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead, and Doaly seems to be too!
The Walking Dead has been an amazing show and shows of this nature instantly get the creative juices flowing. I’m glad to finally get this one complete as the initial sketch was done over 6 months ago, talk about good things come to those who wait haha.
At present these posters are not yet in print, but Doaly hopes to be able to get them out as screen prints at some point in the future. I certainly hope so as the minimal nature and colours of the piece would be complimented as screen prints.
If you do wish to pick up some of Doaly’s work check out his Society6 store where he has some great pieces up for grabs. You can also keep up to date with his work on Facebook and Twitter and let me tell you, this guy pumps out a LOT of great work,
Here at Cult Collective we are huge fans of the creative talent that work hard to put out amazing pieces inspired by their favourite films just for the enjoyment of others. One such artist is Doaly, a brilliantly talented UK based Graphic Designer and Illustrator, whos work is always top tier in my opinion.
Recently Doaly has been working on a number of pieces of art based on Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Having already completed noir inspired pieces for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises, Doaly has now completed his own trilogy with a fantastically epic piece for The Dark Knight. Take a look…
Doaly – The Dark Knight
With The Dark Knight often being revered as the best in Nolan’s trilogy, Doaly had a tough job in living up to the status of the film, but I think it is fair to say that he has most certainly nailed it. Doaly has said that on this final piece he wanted to “take from a monologue from the movie and chart the characters progress, in this movie batman played the role of guardian of the city even when the city didn’t know how much he did for them. I wanted this to echo as part of the city itself and theres a cheeky nod to the joker within the poster as you couldn’t have Dark Knight poster without him.” Can you spot the Joker nod?
When you see all three of these posters together, it is easy to see what Doaly means by progression, with each of the pieces representing key aspects of Batman’s character, his journey and progression throughout the movies.
Over the festive break, announcement for 2014 have been coming quick and fast. From Mondo-Con to Gallery 1988 partnering with Sony for the Ghostbuster 30th anniversary touring gallery. Another exciting announcement comes via the brilliant Bottleneck Gallery for ‘It Came From 1984’, curated by Chogrin.
‘It Came From 1984’ will open on February the 7th at Bottleneck’s NYC gallery, 60 Broadway, Brooklyn and from the looks of things you can expect to see plenty of pieces dedicated to movies released 30 years ago in 1984!
So what was released in 1984? Well, when you look into it, 1984 was a pretty packed year. I would love to see the likes of Gremlins, Ghostbusters, The Terminator, Beverley Hills Cop, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Karate Kid, Dune and This is Spinal tap represented.
As for artists, currently Cuyler Smith (who produced the Spike artwork for the flyer, above), Paul Ainsworth, Paul Shipper, Luke Butland, Maxime Crouzet of ‘Places and Films’, Doaly and Chris Garofalo will all be contributing pieces and hopefully we will see regular Bottleneck contributors Tim Anderson, Marko Manev, and Timothy Pittides join them too.
At Cult Collective we are huge fans of Bottleneck Gallery with Matt Ferguson’s ‘He Stole My Balloons’ making my top ten list. ‘It Came From 1984’ certainly does have the potential to be a great gallery that we very much look forward to hearing more about..
Merry Christmas, everyone! Firstly, thank you for taking the time to visit Cult Collective over the past few months, the site has been overwhelmingly more popular than I had ever imagined. Also, a huge thank you to the awesome artists, designers, movie makers, galleries and illustrators who have spared us the time to share their work and say a few words about what they do.
At this festive time of year we have gathered together some of our favourite holiday related images that we know would make the perfect greeting card for any pop culture art fan!

Have an excellent Christmas and New Year, everyone!
Last week we previewed a few pieces from movie art project ‘This Must Be The Place’, spearheaded by graphic designer Sharm Murugiah. ‘This Must Be The Place’ is an anthology of artwork by designers and illustrators visually interpreting some of the best films of the year using their own unique style. These illustrations will accompany pre existing reviews with the finished anthology being sent to various members of the publishing industry to showcase the work by the extremely talented contributors.
Here’s what art director and contributor Sharm Murugiah had to say about the project:
Welcome to This Must The Place. A book produced once a year to celebrate films and the new creative talent of illustration artists. The aim of this non profit publication is to explore a year in film through the use of reviews provided by various experts in cinema journalism. To accompany these pieces of texts, a group of artists and illustrators have been asked to graphically illustrate an interpretation of the film they have been given. The projects’ main aim hopes to help the artists involved in terms of gaining awareness for their creative talent.
While this is initially for industry insiders only as a kind of portfolio showcase, with each contributor getting their own copy, it will be great to see This Must Be The Place made available for general sale in future, as is my aim.
Well, we are very pleased to bring you a sneak peek at the finished project, including the brilliant cover by Linda Hordijk. The artwork is beautiful and very unique representing each of the movies using the artists individual style. The book itself looks extremely beautiful and I for one would love to have this sat on my coffee table.
