Check These Out: Pulp Novel Recreations of Favorite Sci-Fi Movies
Everyone now and then, people can still find novelizations of upcoming films on the shelves just before they hit theaters, but it's not something that happens as frequently as it used to. However, artist Tim Anderson, a concept designer for Electronic Arts in Salt Lake City, Utah, decided that he would like to see a few of his favorite sci-fi films turned into pulp fiction novels. And so, Anderson has crafted some illustrated posters in the same vein as the classic novels, and it feels like you would see these stories promoted in the window of a bookstore back in the 1950's. There's only a few, but they are truly great pieces.
The best parts are the subtle details, mainly in the publishing logos that reference the films themselves. In addition, the illustrations themselves are just stunning. Anderson says, "I started to find the amazing work being done today by so many talented artists, and it really inspired me to try it myself. I felt like it would be a great series of projects to push me into thinking more graphically. And I really miss the days of the illustrated movie poster.” You and me both, Mr. Anderson. I think we need some more Drew Struzan inspired work outside of the Photoshop rigmarole. See more of Anderson's work right here! Cool, right?
