Over the Garden Wall to Me

Ah, October! The month of Halloween, and the season for spooks and nostalgia. And what better way to celebrate this month of skeletons and ghosts than by watching Over the Garden Wall every day until November?

Over the Garden Wall is a 10-part miniseries that aired on Cartoon Network in November of 2014. The story follows that of stepbrothers Wirt and Greg as they travel through the woods to find their way home. Of course, it’s not that simple, and every 10-minute episode, they run into some sort of danger.

I absolutely love this series. It’s about the length of a feature-film altogether, which makes it easy to watch whenever you feel like it, and the stylistic animation and slightly unsettling nature is just perfect. I fully recommend watching it; my explanation isn’t giving it the full justice it deserves, but it’s all I can say about it without giving it away! You can watch it online (I believe on the Cartoon Network website, or it could be….floating around somewhere).

Anyway, this series seemed perfect for creating a Minimalist TV Poster, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Process:
Simply using the path tool in GIMP to create all the straight lines, filling in everything with the bucket tool, and using the text tool and a simplistic sans-serif font.

I debated adding a certain rock, or perhaps some vines, but since it’s minimalist, I think this is perfect as it is.
