Have you heard of the story about the guy who died at his work desk and wasn’t found for days? Or how about the one about the woman whose breast implants blew up while she was on an airplane? Although there’s no proof if these incidents really happened or not, these are the types of stories that get passed around for year and years.

When it comes to artistic inspiration, it’s easy to turn to the masters of movie cinema. We’re talking about, of course, Hitchcock, Scorsese, and Lynch. Illustrator Julian Rentzsch in collaboration with German design studio Stellavie produced these stunning giclée prints of all three directors. But these are more than just pretty portraits. Each piece includes references to each director’s work, including famous quotes and other nerdy film facts. You can buy all three here, or just oogle at the pictures above.
