We are in awe of Alex's use of colours and he really went above and beyond to depict the shows contrasting worlds. From our Artist Spotlight feature, here is what Alex had to say on his inspiration and creative process:

" Firstly I stuck on the soundtrack as that’s just great to listen to whatever the occasion. I started by drawing up a lot of thumbnails to see what sort of direction I wanted to go in. Immediately I had a lot of images involving a literally upside down portion to the composition but I felt like I had seen this type of representation of the series in many different places so I tried to steer away from that angle. Instead, I wanted to focus on the type of overlaying effect the ‘upside down’ has on Hawkins, with Will disappearing into it. I also wanted to have a shot of the gang on their bikes so that was my starting point. I worked entirely digitally for this but I still approach the image how I would with traditional means; first starting with the line work over the original sketch and over time adding in the colored layers and shades."

"I normally start by watching the film, even if it’s a film I know well like Ghostbusters. I find it a slightly different experience watching it with creating a poster or piece of art in mind. I’m looking for scenes and moments that will translate into a piece of static art that will give people a nostalgia hit and make them want to watch the film again."
