It appears that not only did (the late, great) Robin Williams appeared in so many movies that I have enjoyed and loved watching, there has also been plentiful of colourful, interesting official artwork that has been generated by visual artists, companies for promotional purposes through things such as posters, DVD and video covers for his movies & Mork and Mindy TV series. As well as custom- made DVD discs, covers and sleeves.
With the help of Photoshop - or an alternative image editing software such as GIMP and a bit of practice, anyone can turn any image/s into a full-blown DVD sleeve or cover with a logo, main image, names of the actor/s on it, tagline, film classification logo, cast and crew credits. Below is a selection of my favourite DVD movie sleeves and covers and disc designs that I have chosen & liked the most. The link to the original covers by the artists/creators can be found by clicking on the highlighted movie title.

My very own DVD covers, sleeves and disc art designs
I was inspired in making my own DVD covers and disc art for a couple of Robin Williams movies, as well as Mork and Mindy after seeing so many good ones on the internet created by other people, & some of which I have posted here. And so I thought I might as well give it a shot myself.
With regards to the movie pairings, I noticed that throughout Robin's filmography, that not only did he star in a ton of movies from the 1980s to 2000s, there were some movies that I thought were either similar or I just felt were a good match for one another for me to create the covers for my mock-up 'collection' range. For this collection, I also wanted to choose a colour scheme and layout template that I can easily configure and edit for other movies, and avoid creating each cover from scratch. Saving me time in the process.
I paired up the movies according to their similarity in terms of genre/sub-genre and theme; alas for Disney, I went with Aladdin and Flubber, action-adventure Hook & Jumanji for example and added the standard film classification ratings and DVD logo. The Jumanji one looks crappy to me, but oh well.
But anyhow, I will update this post with more additions, after I have created more of them. I decided to go for the basic and standard look, keeping it simple but colourful as well.
*obviously I don't own the original promotional movie artwork, such as the portraits, logos - that goes to its respective production companies.
Note: please do NOT upload or repost any of these on Instagram, Tumblr or anywhere else. Thanks.
