With less than a month until Netflix's popular sci-fi, Stranger Things third season releases on July 4, time is running out to start rewatching the first two seasons. But, you shouldn't worry much as Netflix has it covered. As part of their Global Artist Outreach programme, the streaming giant had artists from around the world create digital illustrations based on their interpretations from Season 1 and 2. Out of the 16 artists they shortlisted for the job, this 27-year-old from Hyderabad was the only from India to be a part of this. Sri Priyatham, a full-time freelance illustrator was chosen to draw Hopper, the Hawkins Chief of Police who is one of the major characters in the series.
Priyatham tells us that the call from Netflix was unexpected and he was most likely shortlisted after the streaming giant stumbled upon his profile on Instagram. "It was an exclusive project for Netflix and not a contest. They chose artists and commissioned them to draw illustrations based on their understanding of the episodes from the previous two seasons. I still don't have a clue how they came across my profile on Instagram and thought me to be worthy of such an honour. I was obviously overwhelmed as I am certainly a fan of Stranger Things. I have been following it since the beginning. Although I had worked on a few illustrations earlier as fan art but did not complete them. It was the most exciting project I have done in quite some time," exclaims Priyatham.
