Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Arcade


This is my second piece for Gallery 1988's Crazy 4 Cult NY, based on the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World. When the gallery sent me the list of cult films that artists could use as inspiration, I was so happy to see that Scott Pilgrim had been added this year. I knew I had to do a piece for it.

I guess it makes sense that Scott Pilgrim would be considered a cult film, but this was the first time I had ever thought of it that way. Indeed, it is an excellent movie with a strong fan base that didn't make a huge splash at the box office. When the movie was released I was sorry that it didn't do so well, but at the same time it's easy to see how such an unusual concept wouldn't be for everybody. I think most people just had no idea what it was and plunked down their two bits to see something else. It is an amazing film, though, and you can really tell that director Edgar Wright loved the source material and wanted to pull out all the stops when adapting it for the big screen.

Even though this piece needed to be a tribute to the movie, I'm also a giant fan of the comics so I knew I couldn't just throw the look of the books completely to the wayside. I tried to combine the visuals of the comics with old school arcade cabinet art since the story takes place in a video game universe, and because I've always loved the aesthetics of vintage video game promotional materials.

My other C4CNY piece has sold out, but you still can buy a print of this one right here from Gallery 1988!
