PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE
"I'm all Alone. I'm rolling a big donut and this snake wearing a vest..." - Pee-Wee Herman
It was that Quattro time of year again!
I decided that I really wanted to create posters that were unexpected from me. Posters not shadowed in black, blood and horror. Like always, I tried to choose titles that I hadnt seen many alternative posters for. Surprisingly, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure movie poster art was pretty rare.
The whole focus around this piece was "Imagination."
I have my own sort of fan theory about the true story behind the story for PWBA. I personally believe the entire adventure Pee-Wee experiences is all in his head. It's that of a dream or perhaps the daydream of a young child whos parents...arent really ever around. Left to his own devices, with a plethora of toys, gadgets and a very high-tech shiny red bicycle conjures up wild ideas and scenarios that are all make believe. Its a pretty depressing way to view the film but it makes it a deeper film and only highlights how sweet and heartwarming it can be.
This film had so many iconic moments and nostalgic moments. I really wanted to do my best to tasetfully include as many of those as possible and really pay it forward to long-time fans of the PWBA.
The composition reading as a cooky, fun, over-the-top roadmap that takes you on that adventure as well. Where usually I like giving less to a viewer and leave room for interpretation, I wanted to put every egg in this basket and make something fellow fans of the film would hopefully love.
Striking that childhood nostalgia chord at every twist and turn.
