They Live – Gallery 1988’s Crazy 4 Cult
With my 2nd full year in the books of doing gallery shows, I was lucky enough once again to end my year with Gallery 1988’s Crazy 4 Cult, this time it’s back in Los Angeles. Ever since finishing my Twin Peaks poster, I wanted to revisit the “Red Decoder” process that I used. One of my all-time favorite movies, They Live was the perfect movie to use this technique. However, instead of doing only a small portion of the poster as the Red Decoder, I decided to use the process on the whole poster.
The Red Decoder actually fits well into the theme of They Live, where Nada finds a pair of glasses and can all of a sudden see the the real world around him. Magazines and signs reveal their true message, and certain people begin to show their true appearance. The same happens with this poster, when you put on the special Red Decoder glasses, things begin to change.
Danny Askar once again did a fantastic job printing these posters, and even helped me create custom They Live glasses, which come free with each poster purchase.
Working a full-time job these days, it doesn’t leave me a ton of room to do much else outside of it. However, when I do have the time, it’s nice to be able to experiment and try different things for these gallery shows. The poster is up for sale right now on the Gallery 1988 website, and you can also stop by the gallery and see the poster in person.
