Art Deco. Poster. Suspense. Pulp Fiction. 1930s Radio mystery. "The Stroller"
"The Stroller" in The Night of Lost Souls. An enigmatic and ghostly character who introduces and narrates strange stories of mystery and suspense. The Stroller is in the same pulp style as The Whistler and the The Shadow. I really like the 'strange' stories of weird suspense and "The Stroller" is as enigmatic. The poster is in an art deco style and colours. Using a limited palette is interesting to do and Ludwig Hohlwein and Spanish deco were also inspirations.
Who is The Stroller? Where does he come from? All may be revealed at some time.
