3G: ghostbusters poster by strongstuff 3G: ghostbusters poster by strongstuff
...and here's my third and final poster created for gallery 1988's upcoming 3G show. (you can check out my gremlins and goonies posters here.)

the exhibit will be a showcase for members of the illustration collective known as the autumn society, and will feature artwork inspired by the 80's classics "ghostbusters", "goonies" and "gremlins".

in preparation for designing this poster, i sat down with "ghostbusters" for the first time in a looooong while. it was a staple of my childhood movie watching diet, and it's amazing how well it holds up. perfect comic timing, an original story (almost non-existent in movies today), and awesome special effects make for a true classic. oh, and rick moranis rules.

listen... do you smell something?

Uf you don't mind me asking, one thing I have noticed that these posters have in common with is you do a fantastic job of shadowing them, but why is it that you do shadow the one so much?
