A single frame from every movie you watch, in meticulous detail. That’s the mission of art blog Design and a Movie, which makes fantastic art from the simple joy of viewership.


Run by artist Grant Hurlbert, the blog features striking paper-and-ink drawings from a wide variety of movies, including a lot of fabulous genre films like The Road Warrior, Attack of the Clones, and Hellboy. The art runs the gamut from calm, quiet moments, to dynamic action shots, to scene-setting tableaus. And they’re all fabulous. Here’s some of my favorites, with permission from the artist:

“Artist”. “Drawings”. My shiny metal. These are direct captures of exact frames from each movie, and can be generated easily with any advanced photo editor. Look like how I created a “drawingof Star Wars in just 5 seconds. And I didn’t even download Photoshop for that.
