THIS IS A TUMBLR

Alex likes to design/watch/read/play/discuss things.

When I think of tense, gripping spy thrillers, I think of Paul F. Tompkins.

See all my past mashup posters here.

I can’t imagine how angry Abby Adams is going to be about my German, Run Lola Run based poster for “Amelia Earhart, Fearless Flier”. Something must of went terribly wrong in the timeline. If only we knew someone who could fix it…

The Thrilling Adventure Hour’s Down in Moonshine Holler is touted as ‘A Hobo Fairytale’. It follows our protagonist, Banjo Bindlestuff, a former millionaire who gives up everything he has to ride the rails and track down his mysterious hobo princess.  To help out on his quest, Banjo picks up a hobo mentor named Gummy along the way.

In other words, it has absolutely nothing to do with Mean Streets. I just really like the poster.

With a name like “The Cross-Time Adventures of Colonel Tick-Tock”, you can bet it’s going to be the silliest segment of The Thrilling Adventure Hour.

My favorite episode and the basis for this poster, “Electric Park”, features Dr. Ian Malcolm lecturing Ben Franklin on the dangers of messing with the power of lightning because, as we all know, “…Lightning finds a way.”

Another entry in my Thrilling Adventure Hour series. Since Phillip Fathom is this universe’s Batman, that makes Captain Laserbeam none other than Superman.

My Thrilling Adventure Hour series continues with the Phillip Fathom, the deep sea detective. Since he’s blatantly (and hilariously) just underwater Batman, I went with the teaser poster for Batman Returns as my starting point.

My second attempt at a movie-inspired 'Thrilling Adventure Hour' poster. Saul Bass is a legend in the design world, and his poster for ‘Vertigo’ has always been one of my favorites, so it was hard to try to come anywhere near the greatness of the original.

I don’t quite think my falling-into-a-martini-glass-concept works overall, but it entertained me enough to finish it up.

I’ve been toying with the idea for a poster series featuring one of my favorite podcasts, The Thrilling Adventure Hour where I mimic a movie poster for a particular episode of the podcast. “Sparks Nevada, Marshall on Mars” is up first with an homage to the teaser poster for “Django Unchained”.
