Check These Out: Dean Walton's New Contemporary Sci-Fi Poster Art
Big bada boom! One of our personal favorite artists has whipped up a fantastic new series of poster art for five contemporary sci-fi flicks. His name is Dean Walton, aka Mr. Shabba, an illustrator/designer out of the UK. We featured his classic sci-fi series of posters and received some rather rough comments, but I personally love his art and I love that he designs for some of my own sci-fi favorites, especially this time. In his Contemporary Sci-Fi series, he's designed The Fifth Element (1997), Avatar (2009), The Matrix (1999), District 9 (2009) and Total Recall (1990), which is stretching it for "contemporary", but it works.
Here's Dean Walton's new sci-fi series of posters - click on any below to head to an info page for each movie.
I love the colors and the simplicity yet iconic nature of his work, I just think these are refreshing to look at. Each one is being printed in a limited edition of 100, exclusive to Mr. Shabba, for 20£ (~$32.17) or 25£ (~$40.21) depending on the size you get. They come in two sizes - A2 is 16.5" x 23.4" or A1, slightly bigger, at 23.4" x 33.1". You can also just pick up the entire series of five for 80£/100£, if you want to go all out with this new series. I love all of these movies and I'm happy to see such vibrant art for all of them. I already ordered a set myself. I'd love to see some others like Star Wars/Star Trek or Donnie Darko, maybe even Sphere, Moon or Cube, on top of the 10 films he's hit so far. Hope we see more!
