Joey Spiotto is an artist who spent a couple of his last years making illustrations for children books’ covers. However, those were not just ordinary book covers. His work is better described as how would our favourite movies, music, TV shows & video games look like if they were children’s books.
Spiotto transformed over 125 movie titles into old children’s book covers giving them an innocent sense of some long past times. In the gallery below you will recognise your favourites for sure, among titles such as Harry Potter, Batman, Terminator, Beatle Juice and many, many more. All of his designs from this series are put together consisting a book called Storytime – A Little Art Book.
If you like what Sapiro does, you can support his work by preordering a book at Joey’s Kickstarter. The artist has done his part of the job and if he reaches his goal in funding which ensures that he will not be in loss publishing a book, your copy will be on its way. Pledges start at just $25 and IF he reaches the stretch goal, every copy of the book will be upgraded to a Hardcover edition! If you like what you see in the gallery you better pledge now to help make this awesome book a reality.
“In 2014, I had my first solo art exhibit at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, CA.”
“The concept was simple, I took some of my favourite Movies, Music, TV Shows, and Video Games and turned them into covers of children’s books.”
” The show was a huge success and the response to my work was overwhelming.”
“Storytime” reached the front page of Reddit, was featured on sites such as Buzzfeed, Nerdist, Slashfilm, io9, FunnyOrDie, and was even covered by Reading Rainbow.”
“It has been pinned, reblogged, tumblr’d, tweeted, and liked hundreds of thousands of times over. “
“In 2015 I followed up the successful first show with “Storytime 2“. Once again, the response was overwhelmingly positive.”
” I have continued the art series beyond the gallery, debuting new prints at various conventions across the United States.”
“One of the things I continually hear from fans that visit me at conventions is that they wish that I would make a book collecting the entire series…”
“This project is to fund a full-color 132 page book collecting every print from my “Storytime” series that I first started in 2013…”
“But I can’t do it alone, I need your help.”
