Ryūsuke Hamaguchi’s WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY named one of the best movie posters of 2021

I am so honored that the poster I illustrated for Ryūsuke Hamaguchi’s WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY has been named one of the best movie posters of 2021 by Posteritati, one of the 20 best film posters of 2021 by Little White Lies, and one of the best movie posters of 2021 by Letterboxd! The Blu-ray will be released on January 11, 2022 by Film Movement and can be ordered here.

The film premiered in North American theaters on Oct. 15 at Film Forum.
It’s an amazing feeling to see my art plastered all over my favorite movie theater in New York!

On my way to lunch after watching Ryūsuke Hamaguchi’s WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 2, I had a chance encounter with the director himself! I felt like I had just entered his film (the Japanese title, 偶然と想像, is COINCIDENCE AND IMAGINATION.) He told me how much he loved the poster I illustrated for his film and I congratulated him on his two film premieres – WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY and DRIVE MY CAR. What a serendipitous meeting with the master!
