With monochromatic coloring and bold graphic outlines, the Joel Benjamin Gurls Print series is just like a vintage movie poster collection, yet the films don't actually exist.

Moody lighting and mysterious shadows add a somber mood to the images, reminiscent of the cult classic Pulp Fiction movie poster featuring Uma Thurman as Mia Wallace smoking languidly. Joel Benjamin definitely has his own style with the closeups depicting shading detail and the use of graphic comic type lines. His series depicts inscrutable women that can't be held down, femme fatales with no inhibitions. One is even chilling with her shades on and a Spider-Man figurine sitting on her head for no apparent reason.

The Joel Benjamin Gurls Print series makes for a great collection of vintage-style posters.
