LandShark by ameba2k LandShark by ameba2k
This was a commission I did for a friend for Christmas. He simply gave me the title LandShark, and I did the rest.

I decided to make him a decidedly "retro" 60's exploitation film poster. Featuring a cameo from my own decapitated head.

I imagine the film would be about a toxic spill that fused a escaped convict from the city Asylum with the head of a shark. The worst fear of the depths can catch you on solid ground now!

Anyone want to make this into a real film for me?

Again, discussion on all of my work is welcome in the comments. DA is probably the one place I get the most lively discussion on my posters, so thanks to anyone who leaves a comment :)

"Some times when you're really awkward, you do awkward things! So I'm gonna tell you what i've been doing lately...
I've been turning everything into a landshark! What's a landshark? It's a SHARK. THAT'S. ON. LAND. MOTHERFU**ER. "

If you get the reference... you're awesome

That would sell like hotcakes on Zazzle or CafePress too.

I wouldn't, just because it was a commission for someone else, and its for him really.
I do sell my own posters I print myself on my website: [link] if you wanted to take a look :)
Thanks :D

Accidentally borrowed from Sucker Punch, think it suits this poster better though :)

I meant the whole "The jaws of a shark..." bit though so you're still good!

Ill still take a look :P
Although a few days later I did see that Eric Tan did a Scar poster that kind of matches mine. Not saying he stole the idea, but just a happy coincidence :)
