This Friday, Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles is being turned into the private travel agency of artist Eric Tan. Tan, who works full time in creative at Disney Consumer Products, created posters based on his global travels, then organized them as a solo show called Fly. It opens June 28. The artist – who we’ve covered for years – has created 15 posters based on real places like New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego (as well as one fictional city) that showcase his love of pop culture as well as his unique, geometric styles. Below, we exclusively debut five of the 15 pieces in the show including the one fictional entry: Hill Valley 1985, based on Back to the Future Part II. Read More »

Monday, we exclusively premiered Mondo’s Tyler Stout posters for Captain America: The First Avenger. They were bold, brash, and exactly the kind of beautiful busy style we’ve come to expect from Stout. We also mentioned that, in addition to Stout’s Captain America posters, Mondo would be releasing additional Cap posters by /Film favorites, Eric Tan and Olly Moss. Besides being inspired by the same movie, the differences between Stout’s posters and these couldn’t be more significant. For one, Moss and Tan didn’t make movie posters. They each made a set of World War II propaganda posters, one for the Americans and one for Hydra. Which do you side with? Check out all the images and decide after the jump. Read More »
This Friday, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will hold the fifth Crazy 4 Cult art show, an annual exhibition which I’ve called the super bowl of pop culture art. I am so jealous of all my fellow Los Angelans who are able to attend this week. I’ll be away in Texas, but I can’t complain as I’ll be bringing back my girlfriend with me (the big move, exciting). The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site.
After the jump you will find part one of our preview, which includes a new Back to the Future-inspired piece by the great Eric Tan, Monster Squad and Better Off Dead pieces by /Film favorite Dave Perillo, an incredibly multi-level Scott Pilgrim vs. The World piece by Jim Horwat, Alex Pardee‘s tribute to a new cult classic, Rubber, and more. So what are you waiting for?

TRON: Legacy is out at midnight Thursday and if there’s one thing the film is lacking, it’s merchandise. Seriously though, while there are a ton of different TRON toys and tech out there right now, the one thing we haven’t seen yet are bad ass, limited edition posters. Mondo is happy to oblige. They’ve just unveiled a pair of glow in the dark posters by one of our favorite artists, Eric Tan, which will go on sale on Mondo’s site Thursday December 16 at a random time. See the full sized images and more after the jump. Read More »

If you’ve been reading /Film for a while, then you know that I love good movie-inspired art. And the superbowl of movie art is Crazy4Cult, an art show put on every year by Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. This year’s show will open on July 9th, and we have seen the first batch of artwork premiere online. For years I’ve been writing about the show, and posting and buying the art online. I’m super excited because this year I’ll be able to attend the event since I now live in Los Angeles. After the jump you will see a compilation of the artwork I have found thus far. New pieces from Eric Tan, Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and more. We should have another preview closer to the show. Believe me, if you like movie art, hit the jump!

The Alamo Drafthouse will be holding screenings of The Warriors, and Mondo Tees has commissioned a bunch of artists to create a series of posters to promote the screening. The first wave of posters were created by two of my favorite artists, Eric Tan and Tyler Stout.
We’ve featured many of artist Eric Tan’s creations in past Cool Stuff columns: we’ve spotlighted his work for past Pixar productions, X-Men, LOST, among other things. Tan has been creating a series of posters for the Indiana Jones film series. You can see his Raiders of the Lost Ark and Temple of Doom posters in our linked Cool Stuff articles.
We’ve been writing about artist Tyler Stout since I first found his “Remember the Alamo” poster at the Alamo Drafthouse. The Austin based artist frequently provides kick ass posters for the Alamo’s special events, most of which we have featured on /Film: Robocop , The Road Warrior , Spaced , Hellride , Big Trouble in Little China, The Lost Boys, The Warriors , The Thing, Blade Runner, Total Recall and The Big Lebowski.
Check out the posters after the jump.

Last month Disney published new posters from Tan of two of Disney’s animated classics, which he created specifically for The Art of Disney Princess book. Tan explains his process on his blog:
Little Mermaid came out when I was in high school and reinvigorated the entire Animation studio which influenced me to want to get into field that as a career. Although I found I didn’t have the chops for animation, it led me down the path to my current position with Disney and it’ll always be one of those films that reminds me of how I fortunate I am to end up where I did. Sleeping Beauty was just an amazing piece of artistic vision. The look of the film made an impact on me as a kid and I remember trying to draw the Maleficent dragon over and over with less than stellar results.
No word on when Disney will release these wonderful posters as art prints through ACME Archives, although we know it has to happen sooner or later. Check out both posters, in a larger resolution, after the jump.

Correction: Apparently Eric Tan did not create all these posters, I was wrong in that assumption. He created “Journey into the Wild” (with the dogs), Craig Foster did the SAA South American Air (with the Lama), Erik Evans did the “Paradise Falls” (with the bird), and Paul Conrad did the five remaining posters.
To celebrate the November 10th DVD & Blu-ray Combo pack release of Pixar’s Up, Disney has released high resolution copies of Eric Tan’s awesome retro posters which were created during the development of the film for inspiration, and were hung in Pixar Animation Studios during production.
