Frequent visitors to The Brothers Brick will recognize the name Eero Okkonen. We’ve featured a great number of his amazing sculptural works over the years, most featuring large figure builds. His departures from that theme are just as impressive, though. For Those About To Rise Up, an entry into the Travel Poster challenge for Space Jam 2020, is a marvel of gradient color and design. And, yeah, with a pretty impressive face in the foreground, too. I really like the green hair and coral eyeshadow, but my favorite detail has to be the tiny spaceship that is rocketing to the stars.
Thanks to Corona, it feels like I’ve been stuck at home for a thousand years. This poster makes me hopeful there will still be vacation opportunities in the distant future, too.
