The Simpsons has long been a holy grail for art galleries and poster houses. It’s a franchise many of us have grown up with, loved, and perhaps even been obsessed with at some point. That makes it a natural subject for pop-culture artists.
On that note, /Film is proud and excited to reveal the first in Acme Archives‘ ongoing series of officially licensed Simpsons screenprints: Dancin’ Homer by Dave Perillo. It’s a 12 x 24 print in an edition of 250, and it goes on sale Tuesday April 9 at a random time. Check out the full piece below, along with a short interview with the artist. Read More »

It seems the coolest thing about Star Wars these days is not liking Star Wars. Bashing George Lucas and what has become of the Star Wars universe is certainly the latest craze and anyone who comes out and says they’re still a Star Wars fan probably feels like, well, what actual Star Wars fans felt like before 1997. In that long stretch between Return of the Jedi and the Special Editions, Star Wars wasn’t as despised as it may be now, but it certainly wasn’t cool like it was when the prequels came out.
So, it’s a testament to the long lasting positive legacy of the franchise that artists continue to design posters inspired by the series. There’s the awesome series now happening over at Mondo Tees, a whole bunch of minimalist stuff and now we have some really cool Star Wars tourism posters by artist Steve Thomas and released by Acme Archives Direct (they’re the cool art booth on the back wall at San Diego Comic-Con, if you’ve ever been). It’s an eight print series but only the first two have been released. The other six will be released two at a time over the next few months. Hit the jump for print specifics, full versions and a sneak peak at the remaining prints in the series. Read More »
