From Jason Edmiston,

"My 'Go Ape' poster for Mondo and The Alamo Drafthouse is a direct homage to the original poster from 1974 distributed by 20th Century fox that advertised a movie marathon showing all five Planet of the Apes movies. My goal was to recreate the vibe and composition of the classic, while switching up a photo of a soldier ape for a tight illustration of General Ursus. I gathered reference of Ursus from internet searches, screen grabs, and toy photos, and drew a sketch in pencil at about a quarter of the size of the final painting. After I was happy with the composition, I scanned it in, and enlarged it in Photoshop, printed it out, and traced it on primed, stretched watercolor paper. then I painted it traditionally in acrylic, like all my other paintings. I painted a full value sepia underpainting, then followed with color washes, building up from medium values to darks, then finishing with lights and highlights. The text was done in Photoshop by Mondo's Rob Jones."
