Jessica Seamans created a beautiful tribute poster for Joe Dante‘s Gremlins (1984) film. This one of the classic scenes from Gremlins where they are in the movie theaters watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. This time, of the year, is the best time to release something like this because Gremlins is a part of so many fans’ Christmas movie list. You can follow Mondo on Twitter.
Jessica Seamans had this to say:
Naturally, I was thrilled to be asked to do a poster for Gremlins - who wouldn’t be? And then, when I actually started working on it, my excitement transformed into intimidation and dread. I knew I wanted to show the great movie theater scene, but how to fill the page with what is is essentially the same face over and over without being totally monotonous and boring? Also, the lighting was really complex, as here I am trying to convey a dark room lit from both the front and the back. Yikes! But, ultimately it was a really fun challenge and I learned some things that I think will make me a better illustrator and printer. Too bad my brain fell out of my head four or five times in the process.
