AMP recently caught up with DOALY to ask him a few quick fire questions about his work, influences and what we can expect next from this talented individual.
Where in the world are you?
Digital Design Manager
How long have you been doing this?
Professionally I’ve been doing this for 14ish years but the for alternative poster scene I would say about a year or so.
Is this your day job?
Design is more than a job corny as it sounds, if I wasn’t getting paid I would still be doing it, but I’ve been working as a designer for 14 years now
Can you quickly describe your creative process, how do you start a project and what programs or pens do you use to make it?
It generally comes from films I’ve seen. I look at what made them memorable for me and what element do I want to capture/emphasis; now this could either be a scene an emotion or just the style of the film. As for production I do most of my work in my sketch pad than generally in photoshop.
It’s a film that stays with you, I’ve not seen it in years but when i think of scenes from it I’m overcome with emotion.
Favourite original movie poster
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Favourite alternative movie poster
Lord of the Rings by Olly Moss
Piece of work you’re most proud of.
My Man of Steel set
For me its does a lot without having to shout at the audience
Who would you say has been or currently is your inspiration
There are a lot of artists out there that Inspire me, to name a few Gary Pullin, Olly Moss, Mike Mitchell ………
Last movie you saw
Iron Man 3
Could have been a lot better, not a patch on the first one
Have you seen anything recently that other people HAVE to know about? Exhibitions, books, short films, amazing artist friends etc?
The Hero Complex Gallery and their Arch Nemesis show and also Mike Mitchell’s portrait series
Any future projects you can tell us about?
Theres always a lot of ideas in my notebook. A few I will definitely make time for are “26 Movies/26 Letter” and a Game of Thrones idea I just had the other night.
Big thanks to DOALY for taking the time to answer a few questions for us, great stuff.
