Retro and Vintage Art For Modern Films and Characters

Artists Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo have come up with a series where modern movies and characters get a touch of the vintage and retro. The exhibit has been named Modern Vintage and is on display at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles today (December 6) onwards. Movies like Batman, Robocop, Army of Darkness and Blade Runner find a clear mention, and there are likely to be many more as the duo intend to bring 25 items to the show.

Breaking Bad Playing Cards

Artist Jeff Nichol has come up with a series of prints where Breaking Bad characters, most notably Walter White, take their place on a deck of playing cards. We are missing the full set, but several of the characters and references do find room on the cards. Perhaps, we might get a full deck in the near future. For now though, the Breaking Bad playing card prints would do just fine. Several of these illustrations are available as prints at the artist’s shop on Society6.

Minimalist Animated Posters for Harry Potter Series

Minimalist Harry Potter Illustrations by Jessica Martinez

Playing up to the Harry Potter series, artist Jessica Martinez has created a set of animated gif images for all seven books of the series. The images focus on a primary event or object in the related book, and animate it for full effect. It would probably be more like how all images work in the Harry Potter world anyway. As an extra, each image also has Harry Potter’s lightning scar; sometimes clearly visible, and sometimes hidden well enough to make you search for it.
