‘Snowpiercer’ by JC Richard Close-up Shots and Shipping Update

We were pretty excited to finally announce the officially licensed release of well-known pop-culture artist JC Richard’s take on Bong Joon-Ho’s visionary film, Snowpiercer, earlier this week.  It’s a print that has been in the pipeline for a very long time but we’re finally glad to unveil it to the public.

Under license from Radius-TWC, the sister label of The Weinstein Co, JC’s piece is a beautiful 24”x36” seven color screen print with two metallic inks all over the sacred engine.  It’s an instance where metallic ink is actually used on something that’s supposed to be metallic.  The poster has an edition of 195 pieces and costs $50.

Prints will start shipping Saturday, November 28th and for those who already purchased them, you’re in for something special.  The metallic inks on this piece are subtle and a little tough to capture on camera, but when you see this print from various angles you’ll find it tough to miss how great the metallic inks actually are on it.  As for the rest of the print, it’s just as stellar.  Below are some close-up shots of the art.

The Bicycle Thief Shipping Update, Close-up Shot, and Cool News About the Art

The Bicycle Thief Shipping Update, Close-up Shot, and Cool News About the Art

Hi All

Just a heads up, if you’ve ordered a Bicycle Thief print you should have received a shipping confirmation email.  All but two orders have shipped, those will go out tomorrow, the rest were shipped on Friday so people should start receiving them as early as tomorrow afternoon.  We’re really proud of these prints and love how they came out.  The metallics are a great touch but what really makes these prints stand out is the difference looking at it closely from a few feet away.  When you stand back, the art looks like something right out of that era, it’s truly fantastic.

Further down the page is a shot of the variant after we opened the package from the printer and then a close up shot of the bicycle with the metallic ink (click the images to make them bigger).  I’ll try and get some more detail shots posted soon.

In other cool news, Xul1349’s The Bicycle Thief art is going to be featured in a coffee table book that’s all about underground and alternative movie poster art.  We were thrilled to be given an opportunity to have our art featured in the book.  It’s early stages right now but we’ll keep you all posted once there’s more information to share as it should be a great gift for anyone who love this hobby and/or movie posters.

That’s all for now but stay tuned for new prints and other fun updates.

Hot Off the Press: ‘Trollhunter’ Regular Print Looks Great on Paper, Literally

One of the coolest parts about releasing prints is going through the entire process of getting those prints made.  One of my favorite things is to see the JPEG that you stare at for so long actually become a physical product, something tangible.  You never know how the image will transfer to reality but last night any concerns I may have had were reassured.  I received an email from our printer, Diamond Hill Screen Printing, and it contained the first images of our Trollhunter print (regular version) actually on paper.

Since I know a lot of people like to see images of the actual product, I thought I’d post two pictures here to show you that it does, in fact, exist and that it looks pretty damn good too.  I’ll post some close-up shots once I have them in hand but these should do for now.  For those that were excited about this print, seeing it in person should make it sky rocket.  After seeing this I’m trying to figure out what kind of frame I’m going to put this in.
