Continuing my ‘Inspired By’ themes, this time I chose horror movie posters. So I got a book out of the library which had a vast collection of horror posters in it and I chose 3 which I could adopt into my own style with Australian wildlife!!
So the first poster was for ‘The Killer Shrews’
, and so I changed it to ‘The Killer Roos’, changing the image of the tail of a shrew to that of an Eastern Grey Kangaroo!
Next was ‘King Kong’ which I just had to change to ‘Koala Kong’!! And instead of Kong being at the top of the Empire State Building, Koala Kong is on top of the Australian Parliament building. I have also changed the female role to have red hair to reflect Julia Gillard who is Australia’s Prime Minster.
And finally is ‘An American Werewolf in London’ which I have obviously changed to ‘An Australian Kangaroo in London’!
I also wanted to use a different medium for each poster, and so it was inks for The Killer Roos, pencils for Koala Kong, and gouache for An Australian Kangaroo in London.
