If you've been around the horror scene long enough, you've probably seen some artwork from Dude Designs. Scream! Factory's THEY LIVE Blu-ray artwork, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN's iconic Grindhouse poster, the recent HYPOTHERMIA 80s style one-sheet-- The Dude's resume of awesome goes on and on. I am pleased to report the esteemed genre artist has hiked the bar of badass with his latest poster, Video Nasty. The limited (numbered to 150) 18"x 24" art synthesizes everything that was great about the mainstream VHS horror boom of the 80s. The Dude himself describes his inspiration:
"I wanted to give the piece a visual concept to centre the design around, so I put my creative thinking/panic cap on and thought, 'What did I love about horror films and Halloween.' I instantly hit on the idea of renting scary videos from the rental store for Halloween or any other night of the week and how much fun it was, something which I think every one of us Gen-Xers can relate to. So, I really wanted to celebrate that and have this piece as a love letter to the horror movie VHS (and Betamax!) down at your local video rental shop."
