Graphic artist Tomasz Opsasinski has taken a different approach to the whole “alternate movie posters” genre. While we’ve seen other artists apply a cool style to posters for various films, we don’t recall an artist replacing all people in the posters with teddybear-like creatures—actually the blank toys known as Munny, sold by KidRobot. These eyeless white critters would be cute if they weren’t so dangerous: Opsasinski’s Freddy wields the knife-glove Nightmare on Elm Street fans know so well, his Darth Vader stands with lightsaber drawn, his Hellboy is packing a pistol and the Right Hand of Doom.
Opsasinski is a professional poster artist, but isn’t expecting George Lucas or Wes Craven to ring him up asking to use his Munny masterpieces. These are intentionally non-commercial images the artist creates for his own reasons. “In non-commercial work, I make my own rules—or no rules,” he tells DeviantArt, where he’s currently featured in a member spotlight. “This freedom keeps me sane.”
