DINOSAURUS!

 

Recently done: A retro-style illustration for the 60ties Matinee classic »Dinosaurus!« by Irwin S. Yeaworth.

Inspired by the works of Klaus Dill and other German movie poster artists of the 50ties and 60ties I went for a more stylized, "graphic" approach, with bold, black outlines and screaming colors. For the (fun) version above I reused and tweaked the typography from the original US one-sheet poster. 

The actual illustration was used for Subkultur Entertainment's line of limited retro hard box re-packages, celebrating the good ol' VHS rental aesthetics. Grab it while you can, it's limited to 150 units only!
