Given that the Golden Gun is an assembled weapon, it's fitting that the poster be an Ikea-ish instruction sheet (complete with Swedish instructions...even though the film is set in the Far East...).
Tomorrow: 'Quantum of Solace'!

The Bond Poster Project returns on Monday with brand new posters for 007's old and not so old spy adventures. Plus there'll be a couple of previously featured ones that have been re-touched, re-jiggered, and are re-ady (...) to look better and more spy-ier than ever, such as Goldeneye, above.

Simple, cool, three-colour palette with a retro 60s style to it. Ursula Andress' famous silhouette cast against the stark background of one of Dr. No's metal hands. No fuss, no muss.

Has a Soviet propaganda poster kind of feel to it, this one, with its muted colours and slanted Muscovite typeface. The footsteps represent both the escape from Russia (pointing north-west back to Blighty) and blending in with the drab conformity of Communism. And of course they're interrupted by the Soviet red/blood red bootprint of the most famous footwear in Bond history: Rosa Klebb's deadly knife shoe.

Geometric fragments of the Union Flag add to the dynamism of a ski chase, forming snow spray, muzzle flash, and the speed of the skier.

Molten gold background, for obvious reasons, with a white silhouette to keep things feeling white hot. The red line decapitating the silhouette can either be inferred as the trajectory of Oddjob's deadly hat (as when it cuts through the statue's neck), or that famous laser beam that nearly chopped off Bond's other head. 'Ahem'.
Tomorrow: 'The Spy Who Loved Me'!

The famous Bond gun barrel rendered in cut out strips of newspaper (not Elliot Carver's paper, Tomorrow mind you), with Bond at the centre, showing the danger of Elliot Carver's media empire. Specially selected pertinent words and pictures, including a naval frigate, 'News', 'fightback', and 'tragedy' will all be familiar if you've seen the film.

Representing Le Chiffre's weepy eye (or is it Bond lamenting over Vesper?), culminating in a heart for romance and the suit of cards in the Poker game. Red, white, and black colour scheme keep it classy, retro, and mirror the colour scheme of a deck of cards.
Tomorrow: 'Tomorrow Never Dies'!
I've not drawn in ages. That tends to happen when you have to do things like earn money. The little pleasures can fall by the wayside. Getting back to it now though, with a project to keep me out of trouble on an evening. Look...
