Cover Makeover Cabin in the Woods

cabin in the wood

This week’s Cover Makeover Challenge is for a movie poster for the movie The Cabin in the Woods. This is not a movie we would ever watch because its not what we like. But that didn’t stop Toby from taking on the challenge. First he had to read what the movie was about and looked at lots of yukky images on the internet. In the end, The Board thinks he did a great job!

The process:

Honeycomb grid pattern from internet - because that pattern repeats in several posters as well as in some of the yukky images.
