Stranger Things was one of those series that brings you right back to your childhood (kids from the 80’s of course). With all the elements I always loved from the 80’s; Winona Ryder, the fashion, the moody synth from the opening track, all the 80’s classics in the soundtrack and of course, the influences. Very nostalgic!
It definitely seems like movies such as “The Goonies”, “E.T”,”Alien”, “Carrie”, “The Evil Dead”, “Silent Hill”, “Poltergeist” etc… were a rather inspired choice of basis the Duffer brothers used for Stranger Things.
As with all series that really blows its’ fans mind, there are those really talented fans that use the show as inspiration for their art. I chose my favourites that I found around the web, check these incredible illustrations out.

She designs and paints movie classics scenes on her lips, and the results are incredible. With 900k followers on Instagram, her creations include Lion King, Shark, Harry Potter and others. She uses a lot of gradient and licking effect on the lips, which is incredible!
She also gives tutorials on her Youtube channel teaching how to create some designs using brushes, lipstick, glitters and eye shadow.
The photography in these pictures are my second favourite element with the first obviously being the art itself. The care that Jazmina takes to photograph in the best light magnificently accentuates the details. Continue Reading…
