Movie Day - Chariots of Fire

To continue the Olympic theme throughout my blog this week, I've decided to make this Tuesday's film poster of the week an iconic movie in Olympic circles (or rings). This week's film poster is Chariots of Fire.

This beautiful photograph depicts the famous scene of the runners on the beach, a key scene used in the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics where Mr Bean was added for good old British laughs! It's an inspirational photo for aspiring athletes and one which summarises the movie in a simple fashion. In case you've never heard of it, here's the trailer:

Usain Bolt Dedication

I know that the intention of this blog is to share inspiration for print designers and artists, however, seeing as it's the London Olympics I couldn't turn down the opportunity to share this amazingly brilliant and artistic haircut dedicated to the Jamaican 100m sprinter Usain Bolt! I'm sure that Team Jamaica will love this one. Tell me what you think of it in the comments below.

Inspirational Olympic Themed Prints

Seeing as my country is the host to the greatest sporting event in the world, I decided it would be nice to share with you my favourite pieces of Olympic themed prints. So far it has been a success in terms of showmanship. Danny Boyle displayed a perfect portrayal of the heritage of Great Britain in his stunning opening ceremony that embodied history, humour, and passion. Performance wise Team GB hasn't had a great start but fingers crossed we'll put it out of the bag.

Scanning the internet I found some controversial pieces of art which I am not going to display today. Instead, the prints I have selected are supportive of the Olympics and its brand. I will save the more controversial works for later on this week ;)

So without further ado here are my favourite Olympic themed prints so far:
