Friday night in Los Angeles, the Hero Complex Gallery is doing a show called Young Guns. It’s comprised solely of “emerging & rising artists,” each of whom did a series of at least three images all themed together. We’ve already shown you Tracie Ching’s Quentin Tarantino pieces and now, we wanted to give you a quick preview of the remainder of the show. It’s a huge, impressive collection of work that will be on display beginning January 30 in Los Angeles. Check out some previews below. Read More »

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.
That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »

Legendary poster artist Drew Struzan is the best kind of retired. He’s retired, unless he feels like working. So though the artist is officially off the books, he’s released a few posters for Mondo in the past few years. He did a poster for How to Train Your Dragon 2, and if rumors are correct he might be doing something for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. His latest poster is for an upcoming documentary called Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World, which will premiere later this month at the Slamdance Film Festival. It’s the tale behind the Make-A-Wish story that captured the world.

Inherent Vice is a big movie with a lot of moving parts. Even though it cuts out a lot of material from the novel by Thomas Pynchon, the film still has a wealth of characters with odd names, many of whom are given pretty breezy introductions. But a set of Inherent Vice character posters and brief video introductions for many of the major characters might help you sort people out ahead of time.
The downside is that these video intros give up a few of the film’s good jokes (but not all of them by any means). The upside is that these videos feature a bunch of footage that isn’t in the film, not that most people will have a chance to know which is which until after this Friday. Read More »
