Gremlins has been one of my favorite Christmas movies to watch during the holidays for years. In fact, we'll be having a family movie night this weekend to watch it! In celebration of the fantastic Joe Dante-directed film, Mondo has released a print that they will sell created by Jessica Seamans. This is such a cool illustration, and it features the scene where the mischievous group of Gremlins are watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Here’s what Seamans had to say about her Gremlins illustration:
“Naturally, I was thrilled to be asked to do a poster for Gremlins – who wouldn’t be? And then, when I actually started working on it, my excitement transformed into intimidation and dread. I knew I wanted to show the great movie theater scene, but how to fill the page with what is is essentially the same face over and over without being totally monotonous and boring? Also, the lighting was really complex, as here I am trying to convey a dark room lit from both the front and the back. Yikes! But, ultimately it was a really fun challenge and I learned some things that I think will make me a better illustrator and printer. Too bad my brain fell out of my head four or five times in the process.”
