aaaaaaaand here's the second of my two screenprints that'll be debuting at gallery 1988's "required reading"show. based on the prints that have been shown so far, this event (curated by OMG posters and rob jones) is going to be unbelievable.

though most people have a vision of the RGB-eyed aliens from the 1953 film, h.g. wells' novel was actually written in 1898 and is set in victorian london. that provides the unique opportunity to do a steampunk-ish take on the alien tripods, which i happily took. it was also cool to be able to work with period-specific fonts and effects for the typography.

as with the adventures of sherlock holmes poster, this one was printed at D&L and looks amazing.

Very cool! One of my favorite alien invasion stories- I like how you kept the design of the Tripod more closer to the book's visual concept with a bit of steampunk mixed in =D

I'm glad you went the 1890s route, since it's too bad Hollywood hasn't bothered making a good steampunk adaption of the book (I know there's the independent version, but still...)

This is wonderful. I love WOTW, and I came across a great adaptation that Dark Horse put out that is very faithful to the source material. Plus, the art is TO DIE FOR!

Here's a link. [link]
