(for various definitions of 'classic')

Classic movies in miniature style. It all started 2 years ago with an experiment to blend traditional ‘oriental’ (Ottoman) motifs and contemporary ‘western’ cinema. After a positive response to "Ottoman Star Wars", I decided to take the theme further, and developed more film posters using the same technique.

Nice find... clever and well done.

Very nice.
Could have easily veered off into the bushes, but the technique was well-controlled and stayed fairly true. I'd love to have one of these hanging on my studio wall.

Those are all fantastic. It's the kind of pop culture collage I really love: juxtaposing pop culture not with itself but with something more classical, particularly something out of the better known parts of the classical/historical Western art tradition.

Very good! Cleverly done; and as Thorzdad says, they stick pretty well to the basic technique.

These are great!

I hope the discovery of these millennia hence totally messes with scholars.

Oh lordy, the Terminator II one with the T-1000 chasing Arnie on an araba is awesome.

I wish there were close-ups of the... I dunno what you call them -- descriptive captions?

The Alien one completely cracked me up. Check out Lambert in classic Ottoman bewailing pose.

These are great, the Kill Bill one especially so.

Not sure why Elton John is playing a piano in the one for Inception. . .

Love these. Reminds me of the Russian woodcut versions.

These are really delightful. And not just because this definition of 'classics' includes maybe every 'popular' DVD on my shelves, even though that's true.

I really enjoyed these--I love the detail that goes into them!

Omg, *totally* love this!!! So much fun! Thanks for the great post shakespeherian.

These are awesome. I hope they get dug up by an archeologist in 5000 years and are mistaken for depictions of actual historical events. "We know very little about the life of Tony Montana..."
