the Japanese poster for Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs,” drawn by “Akira” creator Katsuhiro Otomo. Says Otomo: “When I first saw Isle of Dogs, I thought it might be difficult to make a poster that would add something to the movie. It is filled with homage to Japanese cinema, including music directly from Kurosawa, and seemed fully realized already, with all its details in place. It was its own complete world. Then I had an idea: to paint a very traditional Japanese dog to represent the island itself, and a very traditional Japanese wooden floor as the sea. I hope my drawing will be a meaningful way to help share this film with the world.”
