Justice Lease


It’s three weeks ’til the new Superman movie comes out and I am pretty excited. I’m going to the premier in my best suit and then under that suit I will wear my Clark Kent suit and under that suit I will wear my superman pajamas suit, I may never take off the first two suits at the cinema but I’ll know that underneath it all I’m a Superman… a sweaty, suffocating Superman who will order a large Coke at the candy bar and will freak out in the bathroom when I undo 2 flies and have to wrangle the underpants I’m wearing over the superman suit.

In anticipation for the new film and because it’s fun to make movies, some friends of mine have started a web-series called Justice Lease. I contributed four illustrations for the intro which look really slick incorporated into the final product.

The series is about superheroes living together. The house is perhaps too small to contain all of their egos and alter egos.

I have an alter-ego called Chad Bunnings. He understands what all the posts are for in all of the sports, he can open the front boot of a car and tell you the machine part that’s not working, he even has names for his fists: Punchy and Phillip.

After winning the batman poster competition I have decided to use my powers of graphic design for good rather than evil. I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking –  “Edmund, how could you possibly use graphic design for evil?” – I’ll tell ya how: I could wow a client with a brilliant design for a theatre show but put the wrong date on the poster thus causing anarchy at a small fringe festival. ANARCHY! and I would save it as a .jpg file and delete the .psd file making it reeeeealy annoying if I were to change the date to the real date. But I would not say a word, I would just let the audiences turn up to another show which may already be booked out. I would stand on a hill watching the confused crowds get mildly annoyed at the ticket booth guy and would chortle, I would chortle with absolute glee knowing that I, a lowly graphic designer, caused such anarchy!

This kind of evil only works once though, It may be hard to get a gig designing posters for a while.

So here is an example of my powers of graphic design being used for good:
