The theme selected for week twenty five of Operation Graphite will be: Cult Movie Poster

Much like Pulp Novels, Cult Movies can cover a wide range of genres and themes. Anything from Horror, Exploitation, Sci-Fi, Trash, or the purely bizarre can be the topic of a Cult Film. Really the only think that truly defines a Cult Classic is small, but dedicated, fan base. Even big budget films that flopped at the box office can live on to become a Cult Classic. Some Cult Films are truly amazing, like Freaks from way back in 1932. Some are popular simply because they are so bad, like Troll 2 or The Room.

This week we will be inspired by Cult Movie Posters and try to create our own, or at least a mock up of one. Some posters are very complex, while some are beautifully simple. You only need to capture the spirit of the Cult Movie poster. I encourage you to check it out wrongsideoftheart.com for some great examples of Cult Movie Posters. They have Everything from The Abominable Dr. Phibbles to Zardoz.

Please submit a drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, inspired by Cult Movie Posters.

All art work is due on Thursday 7.26.12. Submissions will be published the following Friday 7.27.12.
