THE KINGS OF SUMMER Opens Today!!! #Ohio #kingsofsummer #cbsfilms

THE KINGS OF SUMMER which was entirely shot in Ohio!  How cool is that Ohio peeps?
Note: This is an R rated film and not suitable for children, but great for a date or night out with friends.

In celebration of THE KINGS OF SUMMER in select theaters, CBS Films has commissioned artist Jonathan Wilcox to create a new map poster with film clips and stills on the image interactive tool Thinglink.

Jonathan Wilcox assisted in the film’s prop creation, including the missing poster for Patrick, the hand-drawn creed and map, titles for the opening and closing credits, pre-production storyboards and other design elements.

This breakout film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival follows three teenage friends who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. THE KINGS OF SUMMER features an all-star cast, including Nick Offerman (“Parks & Rec”), Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”), Alison Brie (“Community”), Mary Lynn Rajskub (“24”), Nick Robinson (“Melissa & Joey”), Moises Arias (“The Middle”), Gabriel Basso (“Shameless”), and Erin Moriarty (“The Red Widow”).

Jonathan Wilcox grew up in Royal Oak, MI and has been drawing for as long as he can remember. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Columbia College Chicago where he studied illustration. Since then, Jonathan's been freelancing for a number of great clients around the country. He enjoys illustration and cartooning, design for the web and for print, creating graphics for TV and movies, and dabbling in painting, photography and traditional printing techniques.

In addition to creating a limited edition poster for The Kings of Summer, Jonathan had the honor of working on the film in collaboration with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts and other crew members. Jonathan was able to infuse his drawings and designs into many aspects of the movie including pre-production concepts and storyboards, set dressing for Joe Toy's bedroom, assistance in prop creation like the missing poster for Patrick, the hand-drawn creed and map, titles for the opening and closing credits, and other elements.

Jonathan has been creating a comic strip for the last year called Journal of a Shut-In which is loosely based on his day-to-day life living and working in relative isolation. He currently resides in the Detroit area with his wife and their cat. More of Jonathan's work can be found at jtwilcox.com where he has a portfolio and sketch blog.
