Not only does Friday bring the opening of Cowboys & Aliens, Jon Favreau‘s latest film, it brings three brand new, limited edition posters based on the film from Mondo. The poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse teamed up with the Iron Man director to curate and art direct a series of posters based on the film and the results are wildly different and incredibly attractive. After the jump, check out the posters by Daniel Danger, Tom Whalen and Janée Meadows. Read More »
If you watch a lot of television, chances are you’ve heard of PaleyFest. And if not, here’s the scoop. Each year, PaleyFest is an event where some of the biggest shows on television assemble their casts and creative teams for in-depth discussions about the past, present and future of their shows. For 2011, shows like The Walking Dead, True Blood, Eastbound and Down, Community, Supernatural and others are all scheduled to participate and they’re even hosting a Judd Apatow TV reunion with nearly the full casts of Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared together on one night.
Plus, this year Gallery 1988 (which you know because they do the awesome pop culture related art shows that we regularly feature) has commissioned several artists to do limited edition screen prints for some of the events. Daniel Danger did a frightening take on The Walking Dead, DKNG Studios gets to the essence of True Blood (NOTE: limited remaining copies of this print are on sale now at Gallery1988.com) and we’re proud to be able to exclusively premiere Phantom City Creative‘s awesome poster for the Freaks and Geeks/Undeclared reunion. You can see a glimpse of it above but, after the jump, check out the whole thing along with The Walking Dead and True Blood. Read More »
Daniel Danger has one of the most distinctive styles of all the poster artists working today. Dark and detailed with a lot of shadow and light, when Danger tackles a pop culture subject, you’re in for something special. We first saw Danger’s work when he did an awesome set of Amelie prints, and he was one of the breakout artists from the Lost Underground Art Show with his gorgeous rendition of Jacob’s Cabin and the insta-sell out of The Black Rock. Universal commissioned him to make a poster for The Wolfman, and he even did a beautiful rendition of Fenway Park that currently graces my wall as well as bad-ass Scott Pilgrim concert poster that totally broke from his trademark approach.
So my eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw that he was the next artist in Mondo’s Star Wars series. The piece is called Sanctuary Moon and lends itself perfectly to Danger’s unique and beautiful style. Check it out and get on sale details below. Read More »
