I’m a huge fan of Luke Flowers’ illustrations, he has a really fresh and exciting style. He can literally illustrate garbage – and I love it.
Like Luke, I share a love of 80’s popular culture & all things Pixar; I was really excited when I found this on Luke’s website. By the way check out his website, tons of cool work on there.
From the first time I went to a movie at the movie theatre (E.T. was the earliest I can remember), I felt an instant connection to the artistry of film. I am quite thankful that the 80’s offered so many classics, filled with memorable characters and highly imaginative stories. For me, these beloved films are like Doc’s Delorean (hence the header license plate nod). They instantly take me back to an age that formed the foundation of my creative journey, my fondness for film … and a whole slew of awkward middle school moments.
I am deeply grateful for the invitation to create a piece for Pixartimes, and honored to be among so many admired creatives. I was inspired to combine my favorite childhood films and my love for all things Pixar, and what better way to do that then the timeless art of the movie poster! Each poster is based off the original movie poster from my favorite 80’s film then given a Pixar twist. The credit text on the posters have quirky nods to both the Pixar film and original film stars, directors, composers, etc. … see if you can make the connections!
I will be creating one poster each month, so be sure to check back each month for the latest installment! Each Pixar film will be represented throughout the year (except combining the Toy Story films into one month to be able to get all 14 Pixar movies in the year timeframe).
