Camp Crystal Lake Travel Posters

The above travel poster-inspired design by Tom Whalen is from the Gallery1988 show “Around the World In an ’80s Daze” that features the work of Whalen and Dave Perillo. I was hoping they’d take on Meatballs for the show, but we’ll just have to settle for Friday the 13th instead.

Artist Steve Thomas had a similar travel poster-inspired design in a show of his own, “Pop Culture Icons From the 80s and 90s,” held in Seattle in July and August.

  1. Meatballs was released in 1979, and that is probably why it wasn’t featured in a gallery featuring movies from the 80s.
