VHS HELLoween


I was asked by Krystian Kujda to create a poster for the VHS HELL special Halloween event screening held in Poland.

Here is what VHS HELL is all about: 
"VHS HELL are periodic B movie screenings. It is also our nostalgic tribute to the American double feature grindhouse cinema, as well as to the Polish reality of the political transformation period back in the 80s and 90s.

We want you to recollect the times, when after the fall of communism, video rental agencies ruled the districts of the grey blocks-of-flats architecture whose inhabitants blindly relished in the West.

During our shows you will see the forgotten movies, shot in an absurd manner, trashy and disgusting, yet, at the same time, perversely fascinating.

Rubber monsters, sex-haunted extraterrestrials and punks of the nuclear Holocaust era are always accompanied by the cracking sounds of a scratched video tape and a traditional voice-over translation done in a boring manner by a single male voice artist. Just like 20 years ago!"

When asked if there was a theme or idea in mind, I was told to whatever I wanted. So I did.

BONEBAT - 'Comedy of Horrors' Film Fest III



 I was commissioned to by Steven Holetz and his partner in crime, Gord (purveyors Bonehand.com and Bonebat Show) of to design the third annual Bonebat poster/t-shirt. The requirement was that it was a two headed skeleton. It was also the first BoneBat fest to happen in Seattle, where previously it was held in Redmond.
The kaiju aspect of the two-headed skeleton, deemed Bonebatzilla, seemed natural as the one-day horror-comedy film fest would more than likely destroy downtown Seattle.
