Re-imagined movie and television posters are among my favorite fan art. So, when Alex Kittle sent me samples of her work, I sat up straight and took notice. She uses Photoshop for her digital paintings and puts a different spin on titles from the horror and science fiction genres. Sometimes she’s inspired by the film as a whole, like with the Hocus Pocus Sanderson sister-centric poster below, and other times she hones in on a character, like with Diva Plavalaguna from The Fifth Element (that one’s in the gallery).
I like how she uses color. It’s sort of a minimalist look but not entirely because there are still patterns and textures to catch the eye.
Alex doesn’t only illustrate posters inspired by films. You’ll see a couple of television inspired designs along with more movie posters in the gallery below, including Twin Peaks and Daria. You can see additional examples of her work and purchase prints of any and all these posters in Alex’s Etsy store. You can also give her a follow on Instagram.Do you create any sort of fan art? If so, I want to see it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories and mediums, I’d like to highlight what you do. If you’re interested in being featured in a future edition of Fan Art Friday, get in touch with me at [email protected] with examples of your work. If you’re not an artist, feel free to email me with recommendations for Fan Art Friday!
