The artist responsible for all these awesome movie posters is Tyler Stout. He has a really cool, kind of, comic book style that i really enjoy. His use of a limited palate for his posters is really effective, since he also has a lot of elements going on. It pretty much balances out the business of the posters.
Poster for the 1985 classic, The Goonies. (one of my all time favorites). Drew Struzan was the artist and successfully captured the film’s sense of adventure and excitement. The poster has a nice balance of simple (the background) and the detailed figures of the characters hanging.
This Gremlins poster was done in 1984. The artist is John Alvin. He definitely used simplicity and minimalism when putting this poster together. It works really well, but the details of the veins on the hands and gismo’s eyes peeking out from inside the box are awesome and add a lot to this poster.
Both of these posters were done by Drew Struzan. BUT Fright Night was done in 1985 and Super 8 is a recent, 2011 film.
Fright Night has a very chilling effect with the creepy ghost faces in the sky and the lone man silhouetted in the window.
Super 8 is beautifully rendered and very effective.
You can definitely see the artist’s growth over the years between these two posters.
Pete Ryan did this image for an article featuring the website, “Rotten Tomatoes.” The site aggregates movie reviews and posts the findings on a “Tomato Meter” from fresh to rotten. The focus of the article was the site’s Oscar predictability.
This piece works really well, i like the fusion used to bring the oscar trophy and the tomato from the site’s name together. It works really well.
The artist, Pete Ryan, did this illustration for the Washington Post about a neighborhood that was being wrecked by construction. I LOVE this illustration. The use of fusion to show the bulldozer literally wrecking the neighborhood is really effective, and just like his other pieces is use of bold color really works well.
The artist, Pete Ryan, created this illustration for an article in New Jersey Monthly covering the raging debate over the risks and benefits of “raw,” unpasteurized milk. He used fusion to put together the two objects that are the cow’s utters and a faucet. I really like this, it works well and really gets the point across. The colors are bright and bold and really grabbed my attention.
I LOVE his stuff! so funny.
I really liked this pice of fusion illustration between the ash tray and cigarettes the the symbols for religion. I’m not entirely sure what the meaning behind this piece is, but i think its a clever idea to put these together like this. Because i’m not sure what the meaning is, its a little confusing, but the piece itself i still like.
I really like this one. It brings to me the idea of over medication of the United States and how that can lead to some really bad consequences. The balloon and the pill are fused together to show the person jumping. How stressful it can be. This piece is very successful in getting the desired idea across.
