Meet Me In Montauk by Stephen Andrade Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind vintage paperback print Focus Features Gallery1988 G1988 2017
Eternal Sunshine... (Vintage Paperback Edition)
Acrylic and Digital

Created for Gallery1988's Focus Features show, celebrating the films produced by the studio-- I chose to pay tribute to Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. With its trippy visuals and cerebral sci-fi concept, this film reminded me of the "New Wave" SF of the 1960s and '70s, so I tried to tap into the aesthetic of those old paperback covers. The image was painted in acrylics and the text was added digitally. I also decided to give the print a distinctly weathered and grungy look, inspired by the earthy palette of the movie. The end result looks like a book that you might find forgotten and abandoned on the beach, or perhaps on the seat next to you on the train to Montauk.
