Robert Ball's Fifty Goodies

Baddies, goodies, you already know exactly who all these guys are! Designer & illustrator Robert Ball has been designing a fantastic graphic art series on his personal blog / Flickr called simply Fifty Baddies and Fifty Goodies, a collection of 50 bad guys and good guys from the movies. You can view both collections below, as his collection of Fifty Goodies was just finished, and is being Giclee printed if you're interested in picking up a copy. I came across these and thought they were a fantastic, fun set of iconic movie character designs, featuring everyone from Johnny 5 to Abe Sapien to Indy to Up's Russell to Leonidas. Check it out!

Up first are the Fifty Goodies designs. From his blog: "Like the baddies, there's loads of goodies that got left out, but it would have been perverse to have Fifty Goodies without Indy. The impact of that first perfect film had enough energy to carry the rest of the franchise along," he mentions. Here's the first good guys set:

Here's a look at the Fifty Baddies full set that he designed earlier this year. Lots of good ones on this, too!

For either of the posters above, if you're having trouble figuring out any of the faces, there are cheat sheets for both available, but hopefully no one has to use them. They're not that hard! Most the characters on these are instantly recognizable, which is partially why this series is so fun. He's got pretty much every good one!

If you're interested in prints, currently only the Goodies version is available for purchase via Robert Ball's Big Cartel for £30, printed on 15.75" X 20" heavy archival paper (they turn out great). It's limited to only 250 prints, so pick one up now! My favorite designs have to be the faces for Gizmo, the Iron Giant, Gandalf of course, Hit-Girl, Spider-Man, Frankenstein (from Death Race 2000) and the Westworld Gunslinger from the Baddies one - plus HAL. This is just fantastic work and I'm more than happy to feature it. Can you dig?

      Now, now....he missed a couple, but still.... (Although that looks like Michael Keaton's Batman, not Christian Bale's or Adam West's....wonder if he'll catch flack for that?)
