Christopher Lee / The Beast is Back Illustration

christopher lee the beast is back

Los Angeles based illustrator, Christopher Lee, has an eye for designing kooky characters. This poster, originally created for Gallery 1988‘s group show “Crazy for Cult,” has a fun take on some characters from cult classic movies. The colors are reminiscent of my mom’s old tupperware (hooray for avocado green!), and the mixture of type is really pleasing to the eye. From Howard the Duck to Data from The Goonies, there are so many little intricacies within each character of this poster that it forces my hungry eye to want more!

thanks for posting this… made my morning a little more fun!
i’m so glad i happened to see Data tucked away in the corner of that first poster…
Goonies never say “die!”

Certainly changed his style a bit from his ever so popular Urbanites.

I just fell in love. Seriously. This is great!

You cant go wrong when Bruce Cambell as “Ash” is in your poster!

I was wondering if you are currently freelancing work? If so, I would like to send you a project request and get a quote back by Monday morning. Please let me know at your earliest convinence.

Thanks!

Thanks for the comments everyone. Nerdski, I’m glad you remember the Urbanites. Sadly, the rest of the vinyl toy line never took shape :(

If anyone is curious, that Crazy 4 Cult poster will be for sale in my online store this weekend. I just never got around to putting it up.

Erin, thank you for the contact, but it would be best to just email me directly with your proposal. I don’t feel comfortable soliciting my services on this post.

Thanks again grain edit! You guys rock.

wonderful work! for some reason, i really love the horror movie character one.
