Tripping on Hollywood: We Buy Your Kids' psychotronic movie posters
Australian psychedelic designers We Buy Your Kids turn their third eye to science fiction and cult movie posters for a mind-bending new gallery show. Our hypertalented Australian friends Biddy Maroney and Sonny Day (We Buy Your Kids) have returned to the US with a magnificent show of movie poster re-imaginations opening tomorrow (Friday, 8/29) at Austin's Mondo Gallery.

The show is titled "Harsh Majical," which Biddy and Sonny say is "a direct English translation of a Chinese description" of their style.
“We felt it might sum up the final outcome, but more importantly describes the fun we’ve had working on this collection," they say.
