Compilation posters are all the rage.
Dusty Abell gave us the ultimate Star Trek poster to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Original Series. The poster had 123 icons that reflected prime moments from each of TOS 79 episodes. It even came with a cheat sheet.
Alex Pardee goes bigger and better in this horrifying amalgam of 185 of his favorite nightmare-inducing creatures. Unfortunately, there is no full cheat sheet for this one, just a partially obscured first page that lists about 40 creatures. You can find that at the bottom of this post.
Pardee, a California native, has been sketching, drawing and water coloring his horrible creations for the last six years. The poster is the accumulation of this spooky obsession.
His other projects include album art for the band The Used and the artwork for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch.
For those who would like to buy you have two opportunities:
1. Visit Pardee's website starting July 20 at 6:00am PST. The sale closes at August 1 at 11:59pm PST.
2. If you’re going to San Diego Comic-Con, he’ll have them at his booth (#5502). That’s the only place you can get the legend identifying every creature. Here’s a glimpse of that.
Of course every one knows that Comic-Con is being held July 21–24 at the San Diego Convention Center.
