Upcoming Classic Cult Movie Posters
February 18, 2015 By Natalia
I recently came across this awesome graphic designer Gabz who has created this stunningly bold illustration of Batman using Photoshop. It is a limited edition screen print for the French Paper Art Club’s “One Year of Batman Chapter One” official art show in Paris in some time ago. Even better, this isn’t a one off blow-you-away creation, Gabz has covered a multitude of cult classics including the Terminator series and role-playing game The Witcher:
This started me on a mission. It was a mission based on a love of art and need for procrastination, and utilised the very best in my researching skills. I flowed through the web like Jaws in the ocean to deliver you a feast for the eyes (personally I like to call it ‘tapas for your eyeballs’ – tasters, per se). So sit back, relax, and enjoy Part One of World of Superheroes’ very own upcoming classic cult posters:
This poster design by Turk1672 had me mesmerised for quite a while. The detail and use of colours is really something, nevermind the fact this is digital art at some of its finest! It is definitely worth checking out this artist on Deviantart – prints can be bought through Turksworks at Bigcartel.
‘Darth Vader Re-designed’ – speaks for itself, really. This digitally painted fan art by Kyzylhum really caught my eye (I love a bit of personal adaptation that can come with fan art) – was it the pretty awesome sneaker-esque shoes, awesome red and black design or lightsaber-come-ancient-sword that made me want to include this picture? Take your pick…
Looking through all of Ken Taylor‘s movie poster designs it was hard to not make a post on them all by their selves. This Melbourne based illustrator and designer tends to work primarily in the music industry having designed artwork for Pearl Jam, Metallica and Bob Dylan.Over the last few years, though, he has made quite a stir with his limited edition silkscreened movie posters.
The pure minimalism of Chung Kong‘s posters really enhance design concepts via a refreshingly alternative viewpoint. There is a wit residing in his work that plays on fan knowledge, almost creating an inside joke for those who have already experienced these films. Here is a poster that’s main goal isn’t to encourage new audiences to see the movie; it is more a poster urging pre-existing fans to start these film journeys all over again.
Laura Racero is fast becoming one of my new favourite artists. With an impressive portfolio under her belt, this Madrid based super female is a digital illustrator, graphic/web designer and Art Director. You can explore more of her work and buy prints at her online shop.
Lastly, how could I not include this awesome gif of an Iron Man poster by Daniel Norris? Simple yet wholly effective, I don’t know about you but I’m ready to kick some a**.
With a world of art at our fingertips keep exploring, and keep your eyes open for Part Two, coming soon.
