Ken Turner - Alternative Art Poster #33: "STRANGER THINGS"

  
A "STRANGER THINGS" alternative art TV poster has been at the top of my poster list prior to and since getting back from Toronto's FanExpo Canada.  I saw alot of Eleven cosplay but the one I got a picture of was spot on for me.


I added specific numbers for the D & D game dice which corresponded to the show.  Here are the meanings behind the numbers: 

  • 7, 15, 20, 16 is for the date Netflix premiered the show - July 15, 2016
  • 2 is for the twin directors - The Duffer Brothers
  •  8 is for the number of episodes
  • 1 is for Season One
  • 11 is for the character Eleven
  • 6 is for the day Will went missing (November 6th 1983)

Ken Turner - Alternative Art Poster #31: "POKEMON TITANS GO"

 
 
I was encouraged to make a "Pokemon Go" poster but I wanted to do it with a bit of twist. 

So this one I think stands along side my other mash-up posters like "Guardians of the Gravity Falls" and "My Little Morphin' Pony Rangers". 

My mash-up series now adds the following entitled "Pokemon Titans Go". 

Here are the mash-up names: 
  • Rash
  • Silkiechu
  • Bul-Beast-saur Boy
  • Haventer
  • Star Clefirey
  • Maborg

Ken Turner - Alternative Art Poster #30: "THE INCREDIBLES"


Here is my 30th alternative art movie poster for one of my favorite Brad Bird films :
"The Incredibles"!

I remember watching this in the cinema at the very back of the theater seats because it was such a packed screening.

I wanted to capture the graphic closing credits style as they battled Syndrome's Omnidroid v.10 along with Frozone.  In the corner you can see Syndrome holding Jack Jack.

Ken Turner - Alternative Art Poster #28: "THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS"


I've had this rough sketch - see below - in my files, for awhile now, for a Nightmare Before Christmas poster but never quite got around to completing it until recently.  I might do a few variants of the poster and play around background colors.  But for now I settled on this orange as it obviously felt appropriate.

The final poster's approach in style was not want I had set out to attempt but I'm still very happy with the result.

At the request of some people at last year's Fan Expo in Toronto and as an idea that's been at the top of my own to-do list, this is definitely a poster I'll be proud to showcase at the comic con in TO this year.

DHX Media Halifax Art Gallery #2 - Monster Mayhem!

The 2nd Gallery Exhibition from my work studio DHX Halifax is coming up and is entitled
"Monster Mayhem!" 

It opens May 2, 2016.

As an added bonus challenge I got the word "BONES" which could be hidden or featured or used however you like.  I chose to feature "bones" in this piece I entitled "Harryhausen" from this scene from Jason and the Argonauts.



Close-ups from the poster:
