There’s a lot of buzz surrounding the new Christopher Nolan science-fiction film Interstellar. Given the genre, and anticipation leading up to its release last week, it’s no surprise that a considerable amount of inspired art has surfaced online. Much of it is fan art, but these poster comps by Los Angeles-based designer/art director James Fletcher are more than that. Certainly a fan, but also an entertainment industry insider, Fletcher has loads of experience working in the field. And it shows. We love the variety of his layouts, and the level of detail he brings to the table. There’s nothing static about them… they could be part of the movie itself. These posters are impactful, engaging, and just darn good. Well done. Be sure to check out more of Fletcher’s stellar work.

In this celebrity-obsessed culture we live in, we are inundated with celebrity images at every turn. So when one makes you look twice, that’s really saying something. Italian-born photographer Maurizio Galimberti does just that with his mosaic-style grids composed, of all things, Polaroids. The series, “Celebrity Works”, is a fresh take on celebrity photography, and features the likes of Johnny Depp, Sting, Lady Gaga, George Clooney, Benicio Del Toro, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Robert De Niro, among others.

Calgary-based designer/illustrator Michael Mateyko, of the design duo otherwise known as KOMBOH (with Hans Thiessen), has found yet another way to showcase the superhero artwork that we love and admire. This time it’s a poster of minimalist superheroes in tidy little circles. Though there are admittedly some obscure characters here, known only to hardcore comic book fans, the mainstays are also well represented in a fresh manner. Prints for sale here.

In keeping with the theme of movie posters, we want to take an opportunity to showcase the excellent work of Los Angeles-based design firm DKNG (see our previous post here). This time it’s for the iconic 1980s film Big Top Pee-Wee. We love the clean lines and attention to so many details. It’s no surprise that the limited-edition poster sold out on Mondo the DAY it was released.

Just in time for the Oscars, which take place this Sunday, creative genius Olly Moss (here and here) designed this amazing poster, featuring Best Picture Academy Awards from the past 85 years… each represented by its main character. Moss’s work never ceases to amaze and delight.

British designer Rowan Stocks-Moore clearly has a fondness for Disney movies, but interprets them in an unexpected way. Rather than the lighthearted and charming Disney movie poster depictions we’re used to, Stocks-Moore explores the darker side of these tales with some smart silhouettes. Prints of this growing series are available here.

Iowa-based illustrator/designer Michael Myers (aka Drawsgood) has a great eclectic style. We really like the varied execution of his work. For fans of the TV series LOST, you’ll appreciate his reimagining it as an animated series. Also love his Avengers head shots.

We love the work of UK designer/illustrator Richard Davies (see some outstanding portraits here). In honor of Halloween, check out Davie’s awesome interpretations of some horror film icons. The details and textures in his work are incomparable.

Movie poster design can be a true art, and Austin, TX-based studio Mondo are masters. We actually love the official poster for the sci-fi thriller Looper. But Sony Pictures also teamed with Mondo  (and specifically illustrator/designer Martin Ansin) to create limited edition posters for the film (one in gold, one in silver, which apparently has some significance in the film). We’re sure these photos don’t even do them justice (both versions printed in metallic inks), but they are fantastic nonetheless. And we hear the movie is just as good.

Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman of Los Angeles-based design firm DKNG have found their niche in the music and entertainment industries. They have a great aesthetic that seems to evolve with each new project. We particularly love the Bon Iver tour poster (beautiful halftoning) and Paramount Pictures’ 100th Anniversary print (amazing icon set).
