Most of the original artwork we feature is paying tribute to specific films, featuring settings, characters and more from the stories we love. However, artist Julian Rentzsch has decided to pay tribute to the filmmakers themselves with some beautiful portraits that also pay tribute to their filmography. There's only a few portraits he has done right now for Martin Scorsese, Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch, but he's planning on making more. And once you see how incredible these portraits are, you'll be glad that's the case. Each also includes a quote from the filmmaker being illustrated. And you can even get ahold of one!
Each of these will cost you a little over $100 when you include shipping, and there's only 200 being made of each, so you should act fast if you really want one. And the good news is, if you happen to like these portraits, but were hoping for other filmmakers, you can actually vote for which portraits Rentzsch makes next right here. In the poll, Christopher Nolan is in the lead with over 31% of the votes, followed closely by Stanley Kubrick at nearly 24%. My pick would be for Steven Spielberg, but that's just me. Anyway, if you want to buy these portraits, go here, and if you want to see more of Rentzsch's work, head over here.

GANGS OF NEW YORK could use more love. It is pretty incredible.

I know a lot of film enthusiasts here don't like Tim Burton (sad) but I think he deserves love and a poster. His portrait and films would look awesome in that color tone along with maybe this quote: "One person's craziness is another person's reality."

I don't think so; doesn't work for me; seems and looks kind of silly.
