gremlins commission by strongstuff gremlins commission by strongstuff
so here's the backstory on this one:

• i originally designed a gremlins poster for inclusion in gallery 1988's 3G show this past fall.

• john louie, the actor who played the young boy whose grandfather refused to sell the mogwai at the beginning of gremlins, saw it and dug it.

• since the posters were sold out at the gallery, he contacted me asking if he could purchase one of my artist proofs, which i agreed to.

• john received said artist proof and subsequently got the idea to commission me to create a companion piece to the poster. he wanted it to feature him as a young boy, the mogwai, and his grandfather as well as references to his family (the chess pieces) and his chinese name (on the cabinet in front of the grandfather).

• i loved the idea and took the job.

• this is the result.

• the end.

Your work is amazing! The style and execution is really unique and works well! very inspiring. Although I do have one question: Is all this done in Illustrator?
