The quotes, drawn in pen and pencil, are in a variety of styles to match the time each film was set in or the original movie poster.

In 2015, Simmons decided to produced a movie quote illustration each day for a year, calling the project “365 Days of Hand Lettered Movie Quotes”.

He told A Plus magazine that his love of calligraphy came from his father, but it was his brother who challenged him to come up with 365 quotes from films he loves.

His work can be seen on his Instagram account or in his Tumblr archive.


✻ Prints of the project’s drawings are available at Ian Simmons’ Etsy shop.
