So far, posters in the Breaking Bad Art Project have dramatized some of the show’s tensest moments, immortalized some of the best characters and highlighted many of the famous locations. Today’s poster does something totally different as it teaches you all about the safety rules of, and structures in a meth lab. Kevin Tong‘s piece, Superlab, is a 12 x 36 inch screen print that’s so packed full of show references and smarts, it has to be seen to be believed.

The final season of Breaking Bad has begun and its art project continues. During San Diego Comic-Con two new pieces were revealed, one that referred to the season five premiere, and one that we completely missed. You’ll see the one we missed – The Cousins by Jeff Boyes – can be seen after the jump. But the latest piece of art, on sale later today and teased above, is totally different. Frank Kozik, a legendary gig poster artist, has the next piece and it’s an evocative, totally different, graffiti and collage influenced piece based on Jesse Pinkman’s girlfriend Jane.

We’re only one episode into the first half of the final season of Breaking Bad and, if you’re like me, you’re already dreading the end. Vince Gilligan‘s show is so good, so tense and so fun that every episode is like Christmas morning. With meth and murder. Still, every great show has to end and Breaking Bad has eight total episodes this year and then eight total episodes next year before hanging up the lab coat.
The show runner hasn’t decided what he’ll do after that, there’s still lots to do with this show, but one idea he’s floated around is a spin-off centering on Bob Odenkirk‘s sleazy, but smart, lawyer character Saul Goodman.

There are several impressive things about the latest poster in the Breaking Bad Art Project. First of all, the science textbook-influenced image is simple, clean and gorgeous. You’d expect nothing less from Phantom City Creative. Second, it’s so subtle that you really have to be a fan to get it. Anyone who hasn’t seen the show will have no idea what they’re looking at or what it means. Which is kind of genius because, if you do explain its significance, this poster references just about the biggest spoiler Breaking Bad has up to this point. Even so, this poster is so good that we can run the image, tell you generally what it means, and it still won’t spoil anything. Check out Phantom City Creative’s Lily of the Valley poster below.
