FAMP Art Announces First Gallery Show, Adds a New Artist to Their Roster and Announces Next Print

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to all those that came by our booth this past weekend at Boston Comic Con. We had a blast and it was awesome meeting so many people that are passionate about the same types of films and art that we’re into. You really helped make our first convention experience as a vendor amazing and we’re really excited to do it again soon.

At the con, we had on display a new art print by a new FAMP Artist as well as dropped a big announcement via a show card on the table. The print, displayed below, is called The Naval Battle and it’s a piece by Karl Fitzgerald.

the naval battle

Karl is a British illustrator, concept artist and comic book artist currently working in the South East of England. He creates imaginative worlds and tells stories through atmospheric imagery. Using traditional methods as well as digital tools he is able to create a fresh, loose but focused style. Having been mentored by comic book artist Chris Weston, he has developed a ranged skill set from comic book art to concept design. “My major influences include Moebius, Sergio Toppi, Adrian Smith and Mike Mignola, but I have many artist heroes!” says Karl.

We came across Karl’s work after seeing Chris Weston, who we’ve worked with before, post some of his pieces online. We followed him for a bit and then when he unveiled his Naval Battle piece we knew we had to work with him. As a result, we’re teaming up to release that very print in two versions.

The first is a 28.2″x15.2″ giclee printed on somerset velvet fine art paper with archival inks. It’ll be hand numbered, an edition of 20 and will cost $55.

The second is a 28.2″x15.2″ giclee printed on canvas with archival inks. It’ll be hand numbered, an edition of 5 and will cost $150.

Both versions will go on sale via our website this Thursday, August 6th, at 12pm EST. Be sure to follow Karl on Facebook to see more of his amazing work.

But wait, there’s more!

Labours of Hercules show card

We’re incredibly excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever gallery show on December 12, 2015 at Bottleneck Gallery. Continuing with the mythology series that we started with DZO, we will be having a show dedicated to the Greek legend, Hercules. The show is titled The Labours of Hercules and will feature 13 artists from all over the world. 12 artists have been assigned to individual labours while the 13th artist will be illustrating his own version of Hercules.

Karl is one of the 13 artists in the show and is responsible for the incredible art on our show card (see above). He was assigned the 10th labour, The Cattle of Geryon, and has created a heavy metal looking piece that has set the bar high for the quality of art this show will have on display in December. Going forward, we will be unveiling one participating artist from the show every two weeks as we build up to the main event.

Be sure to save the date by marking your calendar’s now and subscribe/follow/etc. to stay up to date on our latest releases. Our next movie print is set to drop at the end of August/early September and you won’t want to miss out on it, trust us.
