Check Out Cartoon Versions Of Your Favorite Sci-Fi Posters

By Brent McKnight | Published

One great thing about passionate fans is how inventive they can be, and how often their obsessive love translates into something really cool and creative. We’ve all come across some super-inventive fan films, t-shirt designs, and various posters and other art forms inspired by someone’s favorite film, novel, comic book, or television show.

Canadian artist Ive Bastrash is responsible for the latest installment of fan art I’ve stumbled across. Entitled the Cinemarium Poster Series, Bastrash has reworked some of your favorite science fiction movie posters in a bubbly style that’s something like a mixture of anime and Saturday-morning cartoons. All these images need are a couple of little blurbs placed here and there and they’d be spot-on recreations.

They manage to capture the look and feel of the original poster while translating the picture to the new medium, but this Blade Runner one is my favorite.

Though you can’t count out Ripley and Newt in Aliens

…Heston, Lady Liberty, and a giant monkey head in Planet of the Apes

…Leeloo and Dallas Corbin from The Fifth Element

…and especially not the T-800 from Terminator. He was once the governor of the most populous state in the union, after all.

Bastrash’s website also has similar posters for Raiders of the Lost Ark, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Batman Returns, Hellboy, Beetlejuice, and Sleepy Hollow, among many other pieces. Only the explicitly sci-fi ones are included here, but the rest are definitely worth checking out if you have a free moment or two.
