James Bond artwork: The name is Kennedy. Graham Kennedy.

By: Anders Frejdh
Graham Kennedy James Bond artwork
Over the years, James Bond has appeared in various artworks around the world. In the 1990’s, Jeffery Marshall created some amazing pieces from Dr. No (1962) to Licence to Kill (1989) (1989). These were officially licensed and produced by Daleon Enterprises in America. American artist Jeff Marshall was commissioned to paint each one, with print runs limited to between 300 and 1500 worldwide.

Graham Kennedy have been a professional illustrator for 20 years, working mainly in publishing. He has a big passion for movie poster art, particularly from the 1960's, 1970's, and the 1980's. He laments the fact that illustration has been dropped in favour of Photoshop images when it comes to creating artwork for movie posters.

The great Drew Struzan, perhaps the greatest exponent of movie poster illustration ever, has been a huge influence and inspiration for Graham.

From Sweden with Love is happy to feature some of Graham's James Bond artworks. Here are some samples of his works:

Graham Kennedy Goldfinger
Artwork based on Goldfinger (1964) featuring Sean Connery, Honor Blackman, Harold Sakata and Gert Fröbe.

Graham Kennedy On Her Majesty's Secret Service artwork
Artwork based on On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) featuring George Lazenby, Telly Savalas, Diana Rigg, Ilse Steppat, Angela Scoular and Gabriele Ferzetti.

Graham Kennedy Thunderball
Artwork based on Thunderball (1965) featuring Sean Connery, Claudine Auger, Adolfo Celi, Martine Beswicke and Luciana Paluzzi.

Graham Kennedy James Bond
Artwork of the six James Bond actors including Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.

German poster collector Thomas Nixdorf, who commissioned these artworks, had the idea to make it 'racier' than the usual Bond image. Hence the girls' exceptionally skimpy costumes, or lack of them!
