Poster Per Diem: Maxwellito's "Taxi Driver" Concept Art

If you visit this site with any regularity, you already know I tend to write reviews for film and television inspired prints that are either currently on sale or are about to go on sale. And while I'll still be pouring the majority of my efforts into those sorts of posts, my daily "Poster Per Diem" feature will focus on awesome prints that have since sold out, never existed in the first place (AKA concept posters) or just bear mentioning. In other words: this is my chance to say, "I never got a chance, for whatever reason, to write about you on this here website, but I think you're really purty and I want to let the world know." Or something like that. Oh, and Per diem is latin for "per day" or "each day."

True to his (or her) word, inside I found a collection of distinctly propagandistic looking movie poster concepts. My favorite piece was the above Taxi Driver design for its use of shadow and the clever wall-o-taxis in the background.
