Phew! This took a while to make. Originally inspired by the awesome Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie poster, I wanted to pay tribute to what I think is currently the best cartoon on television, Adventure Time. If you aren’t familiar with it, get familiar with it. I’ll be here, waiting for you to fill your brain with awesome.
At first I wanted to make the poster as if it was for an awkward Robert Zemeckis CG mocap movie (see: Polar Express). I think some of that fugly character design feeling remains, but ultimately I took all of the jabs towards mocap out because the poster stands on it’s own without them. I wanted to have the worst possible casting at first but then Rob reeled me in from crazytown as he so often does and said, “Hey man, Adventure Time is awesome, don’t fuck it up.” And he was right. So after much deliberation we came to the casting choices that weren’t just entirely silly, but choices that could actually kind of work in a movie. Curious to know… how would you cast your Adventure Time movie?
I made this thing at giganto size because I knew I was going to want a poster sized print of it. If anybody out there is interested in a print, email me and I’ll see what I can do. I don’t know of any printing services other than Kinko’s, so if you’ve got suggestions don’t hold out on a brotha. Here are some detail closeups:
