Celebrate The 30th Anniversary of The Silence of The Lambs With New Posters From Juan Carlos Ruiz Burgos

The Silence of The Lambs is a brilliant thriller that teeters between a psychological study, crime-drama, and horror film. The movie features stellar performances by Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster, and Ted Levine.

Mad Duck Posters celebrates the 30th Anniversary of this amazing movie with a spectacular new release from one of my new favorite artists, Juan Carlos Ruiz Burgos!

Juan had the following to say:

“A couple years ago Mad Duck asked me to do a poster for the 30th Anniversary of The Silence of the Lambs. I love the movie and Anthony Hopkins has been one of my favorite actors since I watched it for the first time, so it was pretty exciting to me.

I wanted Hannibal to be the main focus of the art of course, but I also wanted to include other characters as it’s a movie with an awesome cast. I always try to include portraits of characters instead of just portraits of actors, because I think that you can totally evoke a movie with a gesture or a pose better than a good likeness.

I tried to be elegant with the composition because I think the movie is elegant. We have a rhomboid shape behind the main characters (a reference to the shapes of sewing patterns that Buffalo Bill rips from the skin of its victims) and inside it I painted one of Hannibal’s drawings of Florence. The scene of the dead police complete the rhomboid shape with its light. And below the title you can see the hole and the dog. Other characters are included as support of each of the main ones. Buffalo below Lecter and Crawford below Clarice. And finally we have the lines of the drawing that Hannibal did of Clarice with the lamb in her arms over her.

The Variant version represents the end of the movie with Hannibal in the white outfit and the bloody appearance. I’ve also changed the background to match the new version of the character. I hope you all like it!”

There will also be a very low run foils of the regular design on gold foil and the variant design on red foil! The posters will go on sale Wednesday, October 20th at 12PM EST HERE!
