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.
Directed by Joe Dante
Official Synopsis: Minature green monsters tear through the small town of Kingston Falls. Hijinks ensue as a mild-mannered bank teller releases these hideous loonies after gaining a new pet and violating two of three simple rules: No water (violated), no food after midnight (violated), and no bright light. Hilarious mayhem and destruction in a town straight out of Norman Rockwell. So, when your washing machine blows up or your TV goes on the fritz, before you call the repair man, turn on all the lights and look under all the beds. 'Cause you never can tell, there just might be a gremlin in your house.
