Poster Designs by Tom Whalen

“the fifth element” by Tom Whalen
I got a (Prospect) Dribbble account yesterday and has been liking many number of dribbbled designs made by the amazing players over there.
One of all star Dribbble players I stumbled upon was Tom Whalen of A great illustrator who has designed lots of colorful  poster related to movies or comic characters. The poster designs are often implement retro color scheme or style but how Tom composing illustration figures, textures and typography is definitely clever! I enjoy myself surfing StrongStuff on Tumblr and reblogged one of Tom Whalen's infography-illustration poster: "Ghostbusters" as I'm a (probably the only one) fan of Slimer :-p
You like the StrongStuff posters? just follow Tom Whalen's tweets @strongstufftom to get fresh design updates via Twitter!
