WebFind: Stuff by Mark, and his amazing song-inspired posters – and comics, too

Stuff By Mark is Mark Reynolds, a UK-based artist who takes inspiration from the world of music to produce art and design in hope of making people like him. It seems to be working, with plenty of commissions for album covers from indie bands and individual artists, including Frank Black.

Mark’s recently been reimagining sings “as film posters for old, kitchen sink dramas’ series, including The Specials’ “Too Much Too Young” and Dexys Midnight RunnersGeno”.

The Jam’s “Town Called Malice”, entry in Stuff by Mark’s “Songs reimagined as film posters for old, kitchen sink dramas” series
Dexys Midnight Runners’ “Geno” which, Mark feels, “ended up looking a bit more Mean Streets than Kes, but given the film’s influence on Dexys’ look at the time that seemed kind of appropriate.”

Mark’s also previously created some wonderful posters featuring other bands well-known songs as wonderful homage on classic comic covers. Well worth checking out.

Limited edition signed prints are available from his web store.
