Edited by Todd Oldham, this fully illustrated ABC book celebrates a selection of films, directors, and actors who have contributed to defining the Sundance Film Festival as a home to the innovators and dreamers of independent film. Each letter is illustrated by a different artist. The book includes work by a wildly talented and accomplished bunch. I created artwork to accompany the letter R. My assignment was to reference the following four elements in a single illustration: Robert Redford, and the films Run Lola Run, Roger & Me, and Real Women Have Curves.
I also have to say, Robert Redford is my all time favorite. Films like A River Runs Through It, Out of Africa, Electric Horseman, and of course Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid have a spirit and power that I find remarkably beautiful and inspiring. Needless to say, working on a portrait of Mr. Redford for a project associated with his festival was a dream.
