wondercon exclusives

WonderCon kicks off Friday for three days of comic convention madness. Movie wise, there isn’t a ton going on, but there’s always fun to be had and lots of exclusive merchandise to covet. One of our favorite spots at WonderCon is the Hero Complex Gallery booth. They always have beautiful prints that are only available at WonderCon and this year is no different. We’ve already shown you a few of them, a Batman series by Casey Callendar, but today we’ve got even more. Spider-Man, Wall-E, Watchmen, Star Wars, it’s a pretty solid cross section of cool stuff.

Plus, right now, you can get an officially licensed Mad Men poster from the gallery, by Milton Glaser, celebrating the final episodes that start this weekend. See all the WonderCon exclusives and more below. Read More »

Ape Meets Girl Jaws - Amity Island Island Open

There’s no arguing Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws is a masterpiece. An infinitely rewatchable thriller that’s quotable, entertaining and influential. One of the many places you see that influence today is the pop culture art world. Jaws is regularly one of the most reimagined properties out there. There have been full art shows dedicated to the film as well as innumerable one off pieces here and there. And with each subsequent poster released, the artists seem to be inspired to top one another.

Which leads us to the latest Jaws print by Kevin M. Wilson aka Ape Meets Girl. He took the intense film and boiled it down into a serene landscape showing Amity Island in its before, and after, settings. See the full Ape Meets Girl Jaws posters below. Read More »

Max Dalton solo show

Max Dalton is an artist we’ve featured on /Film numerous times. He’s done incredible work based on the films of Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers and many others. His style is deceptively simple, but by somehow perfectly evokes a quirky tone that’s either perfectly in line with filmmakers like those, or delightfully polarized from others.

Dalton’s first solo show is called On A Mission From God and it opens at 6 p.m. April 4 at Spoke Art in San Francisco. It consists of a wide variety of pop culture influenced art from a small new series called “Greatest Moments in Film,” more traditions limited edition prints brimming with hilarious and unique detail, and even homemade toys and games. Have you ever wanted to play Where’s Waldo, but in the world of Breaking Bad? How about have a poster of your favorite Seinfeld quotes? What would a Groundhog Day board game be like? All of that and more is part of this exhibit.

Below, read more about the first Max Dalton solo show and see a bunch of art from it including several pieces exclusive to /Film. Read More »
