Here’s another cool print inspired by Stranger Things from Austin artist Lance Schibi. This design is also a tribute to X-Men issue #134. The image got pretty popular online earlier this month, and now it’s a limited print available to purchase from Nakatomi Inc. Limited to an edition of 50, the print measures 12″ x 18″ and will be signed and hand-numbered. It’ll only cost you $25, but you better act fast if you want one.

Stranger Things - Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler

We know Stranger Things is one of Netflix’s most popular shows, but it turns out that it might be more popular than initially thought. According to Deadline, the latest numbers figured out by Symphony Advanced Media indicate the show is the third most-watched show on the streaming service after just 35 days of release. Stranger Things has pulled in an average of 14.07 million adults among viewers 18-49 putting it behind only the first season of Fuller House and the fourth season of Orange Is the New Black.

Since Netflix doesn’t release their ratings numbers, these aren’t exactly official, but there’s no denying that Stranger Things is one of the biggest successes they’ve had, and new people will continue to discover the series as time goes on.

Some new shirts paying tribute to Stranger Things and mashing the show up with other beloved properties have popped up over at Shirtoid. The four boys from the show get a South Park makeover in one shirt while Eleven is turned into Rey in a mash-up with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In addition, the cool font of the title design is used to create a shirt showing love for waffles that only fans of the show will understand. But my favorite recent shirt out of the bunch is the retro Hawkins, Indiana shirt.

Stranger Things - Winona Ryder

A new interview with production designer Chris Trujillo discusses how the cinema of the 1980s influenced the look of the show, from the aesthetic of the Byers house to all of the exterior locations on the show and more. Trujillo starts off by explaining how he came to be involved with the show to Interiors:

A series of very fortunate events led me to Stranger Things. In the Spring of 2013, I designed a dark little gem of a genre film called Honeymoon for Leigh Janiak. She and I really jived creatively and became fast friends in real life. We kept in touch, and then, in the summer of 2014, I was in Los Angeles for a few months designing a film and staying in an Airbnb around the corner from where Leigh and her then fiance, now husband, Ross Duffer live in Los Feliz. The first time I heard of Stranger Things was over brunch with Leigh and Ross. At that point, the project was still called Montauk and it was little more than a glimmer in the Duffers’ eye. It seemed like too awesome an idea, like a perfect pipe dream. I’m a child of the 80s American Suburbs, and, as a production designer, I’m a student of the great American films of the late 70s and early 80s. So once we started throwing around influences like Mike Nichols, David Lynch, and Ken Russell in the same context as Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, and John Carpenter, I knew this was a dream project for me. We talked excitedly about it for a bit, I made them promise to remember me if ever the stars aligned, and then we moved on to other topics.
