You can never have too many of these. Here are a few posters from classic Horror/Cult/Sci-Fi/Foreign B movies. Aliens, robots, vampires, zombies, slashers, babes. All the good stuff right here. If you’re having trouble finding inspiration for a design/illustration project, or just looking for a new stylistic direction, it’s not a bad idea to go over a few of these and loosen up a bit. Do it right, though. We’re not talking about straight copying or even borrowing here. Don’t be boring. And if you’re looking for more of this sort of thing, check out Wrong Side of the Art, a great archive for cult/low budget movie posters and stills.
Greg Mamczak’s painted worlds are fascinating storybooks with a creepy calm air. I’m completely drawn in to see the different parts of his scenes, and explore the eerie feeling they exude. Each painting has so much in it, but still leaves ample room for imagination. His scenes range from people participating in what looks like cult worship, to every day scenes centered around exploration and discovery. Whatever is behind these creations, it’s peaked my curiosity. Have a look…
