War is a Drug

With news of movie The Hurt Locker being successful at this years Oscar awards this week, it seemed perfect time to publicise Shetland Arts' screening of the movie later this month.

The Hurt Locker opens with a quote: "The rush of battle is a potent and often lethal addiction, for war is a drug". The quote comes from the 2002 best-selling book War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning, by New York Times war correspondent and journalist, Chris Hedges.

Below is my process and final, rejected poster for the film. (They would prefer to use the existing artwork for marketing)
