While we dive deep into Hollywood’s poster offerings each month to look at the best and worst studio-produced one-sheets, it’s time to put our money where our mouth is. At The Film Stage, we believe that if some care is taken, a poster can be a distinct creation unto itself that’s worthy of observation and admiration. Today is the return of our feature, Alternate Art, in which the talented designer Midnight Marauder creates an original, alternate poster for one of the month’s releases.

This month is for Noah Baumbach‘s hilarious Mistress America, which is now in limited release courtesy of Fox Searchlight. The comedy follows Greta Gerwig and Lola Kirke as soon-to-be stepsisters who form a friendship. Today brings two alternate posters, depicting the early adventures they go on in the film.
