Pampling’s The Upside Down

The Upside Down by itsdanielle91 definitely impresses, collaging together elements from Stranger Things at such strong angles, the viewer’s eye is drawn right into the world it creates. You really feel the grandness of the forest, the stoicism of Eleven, and the danger that the boys are biking into below. The color palette is well-chosen, helping the art to envision a shift from the hopeful blue skies of above to the foreboding, sunset reds of the upside-down. I like the way Eleven and the demogorgon are balanced in position, but the thick trunk of the design’s tallest tree pulls attention towards the creature, giving him extra weight. Angles used throughout keep everything feeling a bit off-kilter, like nothing is truly normal in this scene. It’s very well made, and should be a big hit with fans.

Pampling has two options for winners of their contest. XPress winners earn 1 euro per shirt sold, with a minimum of 100 euros guaranteed. If the design sells well, designers may have the option of earning 500 euros to give Pampling the exclusive printing rights for one year. The second option is Classic winners, who earn 680 euros cash and 120 euros in t-shirts (or 720 euros cash) for the first 400 units and exclusive rights for 3 years. If the design is reprinted, the artist earns 850 euros cash and 150 euros in Pampling products (or 900 euros cash).
