X-Files Episode 44: Humbug Gets The Freaks Treatment!

Artist J.J. Lendl on his tumblr explains he intended to create posters for episodes of the X-Files but only for a month, the popularity of his artwork has led him to continue past that one month plan and is asking fans to submit their favorite episodes to get the poster treatment.

Like what Lendl has done with Episode 44 entitled Humbug, he based it off the poster design for Tod Browning’s 1932 masterpiece Freaks.

J.J. approaches each episode with a different art style like you can see with Episode 30: Ascension and Episode 35: Excelsis Dei.
