Artist imagines Boris Karloff in abandoned 1930s film A Trip to Mars

Professional illustrator and graphic designer Rob Kelly has created a creepy but beautiful poster for the abandoned 1930s film A Trip to Mars, which was slated to star legendary horror actor Boris Karloff as a Martian leading a mass revolution on the Red Planet. For some info on the film and an explanation of the poster, read the recent entry on Kelly’s blog. The poster is the latest installment in Kelly’s impressive Universal Monsters series and is part of the Boris Karloff Blogathon (November 23rd to 29th).

Rob Kelly's clients have included Forbes, The Grammy Awards, Harper Collins, National Basketball Association, Pitney Bowes, Popular Science, Time Out New York, Vibe and The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas.
