This week we are releasing new licensed movie posters for the 1988 cult classic Killer Klowns From Outer Space! The posters are 24x36 screen prints with incredible new art by Timothy Pittides!
The artist has a true passion for the horror/comedy 80s classic and had the following to say about the movie and project:
"In 2013 I was asked to make a small poster for a local screening of Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and ever since I have dying to create a true alternative movie poster for the film. It is a top ten desert island film for me, I used to watch it religiously when I was younger and continue to rewatch it as often as I can. When I was approached to do this, a TON of ideas and concepts flew out of me, but none really hit the mark. But it all changed one morning while in the shower. The place where you get the most thinking done. The original one sheet of this film is iconic and a play off that was where my mind went. I also knew this poster would have to pop and have COLOR! Since all my work is hand done, on paper, this task came down to creating each individual image ( the earth, the arm, planets, logo, etc) separately and breaking each color layer down manually as I went. The poster had a final total of 55 single layer scans and 13 colors overall making it the most colors I have ever with. I am so thankful for Brad and Mad Duck for allowing me to handle this property and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it!"
