I ran across these adorable illustrations of adult movies, TV, and games rendered as Little Golden Books over at io9, but a little digging through the links they provided brought up a whole lot more. They’re by artist Joey Spiotto, who has several posted on his website (his album cover art is great, too – I actually have a Teefury shirt based on one of them), more on his Instagram here, and there are even more at Gallery 88, the gallery in Los Angeles where he displays his work and where you can buy prints. They’re all adorable, and I somehow have great love for art that takes definitely adult things and renders them in a format that looks kid-friendly. You know, like Kill Bill.
I wish this were edited a little slower so you’d have more time to actually see the effects, but it’s still a very cool compilation of clips. My abiding love for practical effects is well known, so I see it more as a continuum of great cinema trickery than an evolution from lesser to greater.
I‘m a big fan of unbroken steadicam shots, and this one may be short (50 seconds), but it’s pretty awesome nonetheless. Definitely worth your less-than-a-minute. There’s also a making of video here, showing the quick stage changes and steadicam movement.
