The postal services has previously released movie stamps. Universal Monsters, the Star Wars universe, Looney Tunes and early TV classics have all been given philatelic homages depicted realistically and somberly as possible, but where are the fun and great movie memories we all remember? Where is the essence that stamped these classics into the permanent space of every moviegoers heart and soul?
Digital artist Clark Orr remembers the fun. That is why every one of his 17 "pop culture postage" (now on display at LA-based Gallery 1988 through February 18th) resonates with Easter Eggs and cinema moments. Orr knows that it is the memory and not the reality that matters when it comes to classic movies.
A figure of a DeLorean is enough to recall the fun of Back to the Future. E.T. only needs him and Elliot in a bicycle against a giant moonscape to take us back to the movie. Mountains, the Overlook Hotel and the giant maze are enough to recall the horrible delights of The Shining.
Take a look at some of his choice stamps from his collection below:
2. 'Back To The Future'
5. 'Friday The 13th'
8. 'Hotel Transylvania'
9. 'Nightmare On Elm Street'
11. Star Wars
