Essex Movie Posters

Lately, I’ve been on an Argentinean movie posters kick — but don’t cry for me, Argentina…even though some of these country of origin posters do nearly bring me to tears!

And one of my favorite Argentinean poster artists goes by the name Essex. Wish I could tell you more about him (or her), but aside from the recognizable signature and a few listed credits on some movie poster websites, such as LAMP and Posteritati — that’s all I could find! But all you need is to take one look at Essex’s version of The Lost Weekend and you too will soon get lost in the beautiful haze…

(By the way, his John Hancock reminds me of the old Esso Gas logo.)
