May 4th is a day to celebrate Star Wars, to celebrate the pageantry, the action and the legacy George Lucas first brought to the screen in 1977. And while we all know J.J. Abrams is about to start a whole new trilogy of films, and we’re expecting something soon on that front (still!), many other places are celebrating “May the 4th Be With You” in their own way.
Among those outlets are the Acme Archives, the official fine art licensee for Lucasfilm. They’ve commissioned an impressive line up of talented artist to make limited edition posters that’ll be released to the world on May 4 and we’re proud to debut four of the seven pieces. There’s one by Mark Englert, Dave Perillo, Ian Glaubinger and Masey. Check out Acme’s May 4th Star Wars posters below. Read More »

Spinning movies in artistic, fun ways is what Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo are all about. In 2012, the Pennsylvania artists took art fans on a tour of their favorite ’80s film locations. In 2013, they’re presenting some of their favorite modern films in vintage styles.
The exhibit called Modern Vintage opens at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles on December 6. It’s the second show by the artists, who are best known for the stellar work they’ve done in the past for Mondo, Acme, Disney, Fox and so many more. This latest show is a little less specific than their 2012 Gallery 1988 show in that the pieces aren’t beholden to any 100% specific theme. Movies like Batman, Robocop, Army of Darkness and Blade Runner are simply reimagined in clever vintage styles. That might mean an advertisement, it might mean a public service announcement or maybe something else entirely. Either way, Whalen and Perillo’s signature, colorful art will delight fans who are in on the joke.
Check out an exclusive reveal of several images from the show below. Read More »
