For the past few years, on October, illustrators all around the world take the inktober challenge upon themselves. Creating one ink illustration a day, throughout October, in order improve their skills. There isn’t a real theme, everything goes, as long as they produce the illustration on time. Austin Light, an illustrator from Charlotte, NC, did a series of illustrations, that were so popular, that he decided to turn them into a book. Austin drew a set of misspelled movie illustrations, and gave them his interpretation.
Finding an idea for an illustration can often take more time than creating the actual one. As Austin describes, in a site he dedicated to his new book: “coming up with a topic can often take as long as actually drawing something, I decided to pull topics from Reddit. Specifically, the titles in a 2012 thread–shown to me by a coworker–about removing a letter from a movie.“. Austin created the illustrations and gave each of them a new movie plot, one that will better fit the new name.
Check out some images from his book, “Movie Title Typos“, below. You can also check the site he dedicated to the book, to get some more information. Austin also has some nice prints to sell on his society6 page.
