‘Trollhunter’ by Gabriel Picolo Printing/Shipping Update

Hi All,

The posters for the timed release of Gabriel Picolo’s  Trollhunter have been printed.  We should have them in hand early next week and will start shipping them as soon as they arrive.  The final run size was 48 prints.

Below are two pictures that come straight from the printer.  The colors look like they really pop which I think will make it a pretty nifty piece to hang on the wall.

For the purposes of transparency, there was one slight change on the image that ended up being unavoidable.  You’ll notice that the spotlight gradient is slightly different than the advertised image.  Unfortunately, due to the small area, the inks wouldn’t stick well to allow for a split fountain/smooth gradient like we had initially anticipated.  We found an alternative method but it changed the look ever so slightly (as you can see below).  We think Diamond Hill Screen Printing did a solid job of finding a way to make it work so that the print’s aesthetic wouldn’t change.  Should you not like the results we will be happy to refund any money since this was a last minute decision while it was on the printer. We didn’t want to hold the prints up any longer but we also didn’t want to scrap the project.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

We’re back!

At the end of 2014, we announced that we were going to be shifting gears which resulted in a quiet first quarter. We want to thank those that supported our Godmachine La Haine release since that’s been our only drop thus far.

We’ve been working diligently behind the scenes to bring you some sweet new art, both movie related and not, and think you’ll dig what we’re going to be releasing throughout the rest of the year.

One of our goals when we started the business was to help introduce amazing new artists to this scene and give them an opportunity to tackle a licensed property. Regardless if they’re popular or not, we wanted to help them find ways to reach a new audience, in addition to having a supportive outlet where they could sell their art, art based on both original ideas and some pop culture ones.

What does this all mean? It means that we will be representing a handful of very select artists, either very regularly or exclusively, to promote them as well as release and promote their art. Soon you’ll see two new sections on our website called Artists and The Gallery. The first will show a list of the artists that we will be working with regularly or that we’ll be exclusively representing. Artists will be added once we’ve introduced them via our newsletter, blog, etc. The Gallery section will be for other passion projects of ours that generally won’t be pop culture related. We have two major series in the works that we’re super excited about and news on each will be revealed in time.

Over the remainder of the year, we’ll be introducing three artists that will be joining our roster, but it’s about that time we introduced the first one: Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to introduce you to Gabriel Picolo, FAMP Art’s first resident artist.

Gabriel is a young illustrator from Brazil who we came across last summer when he was working on an amazing 365 Days of Doodles project. When you see those doodles your jaw is going to drop the same way ours did (check out his Instagram). We knew right then and there that we had to find a way to work with him, so we gave him a test: We asked him to design a poster for André Øvredal’s Norwegian mockumentary, Trollhunter (aka Trolljegeren), because of his ability to create rich and fun visuals with creatures. He submitted an idea and we loved it. After a few weeks, he came back to us with the final product and it was a nifty, simple and elegant take on the film. This is the largest canvas he has worked on thus far and was his first real test using color. It’s also the first movie poster he’s ever made and will be the first piece of art that he sells as a limited edition print. We were going to wait until October to release the piece, but people from all over the world have been begging him to publicly sell his art and so we thought, why wait, let’s kick-off his collectible print debut with a licensed poster.

Here’s what Gabriel had to say about the project: “Working on the Trollhunter poster project was a unique experience for me. That’s because, until now, it was the first time I watched a movie thinking about the illustration I’d draw afterwards. It changes how you see the whole thing. As I watched the movie I was seeking for interesting visual features that could help me to create the poster. I would like to thank Alex and FAMP Art for inviting me to join this project!”

To commemorate his first screen print release and to welcome him into the FAMP Art family, we’ll be making his Trollhunter print available as a timed edition. The art is an 18”x24” screen print that will cost $39. It will go on sale Thursday, May 14th at 12pm EST and will end on May 24th at 6pm EST. The print ships WW. The art will take up to two months to ship as we can’t print until we have the final edition size confirmed. There is no limit on the amount of prints you can purchase within the sale period. We will refund you the difference in shipping should you order more than one print, but we only ship a maximum of three prints together.   All orders are final and cannot be cancelled.

Additionally, we will be releasing prints of Gabriel’s popular doodles throughout the year in addition to some other fun stuff, so if you want to know about Gabriel’s future releases be sure to sign-up for our newsletter on www.fampart.com or follow us on twitter, facebook or Instagram to keep up with the latest news.

Lastly, we’ll be attending Boston Comic Con this July. If you live in the Boston area, be sure to come give us a shout. We’ll announce booth info and releases at a later date.

That’s all the news for now. Stay tuned, we’ll be announcing a new artist and dropping an incredible piece related to one of the series we’re working on in June.

Trollhunter Shipping and Next Print Release Update

Trollhunter Shipping and Next Print Release Update

Hi All,

Thanks again to everyone who purchased and supported the Chris Weston Trollhunter release.  If you haven’t picked one up yet and love the movie I highly suggest taking the plunge.  Both prints are a thing of beauty.  For those that did purchase, as of today all the prints have been shipped and you should have received a confirmation email with your tracking number.  If you bought a set we were able to match numbers for you.  We’ll take some close-up shots as well and post them on here.

I’m sure many of you are eager to see what’s next in the pipeline. Well, we won’t be saying what the film is just yet, but it will be a film that was released prior to 1960 and is considered a true global classic.  We will likely be unveiling the next print the week of November 17th and putting it up on sale on the 24th or 25th.  Details are still being ironed out on but expect a very limited run on it.

Stay tuned…

TROLLHUNTER on Sale now, Variant Close-up Shots, and Shipping Answers to International FAQs

Hi All,

In case you didn’t know, our Trollhunter prints went on sale today in the shop and we’re excited to finally let this one out into the public.

Firstly, we’d like to thank all of those who helped get the word out on these prints like Blurppy, Magnet Releasing, the EB crew and our twitter/Facebook followers.  Secondly, we’ll start shipping these out either Saturday or first thing next week so that those who ordered can receive it by the that Friday or early the following week depending on how speedy USPS feels like being.

Secondly, we’ve had a few questions regarding international shipping prices. Right now we are shipping everything via USPS priority international.  It’s a bit more expensive but it’s faster, includes tracking and, more importantly, insures the product that you paid for.  We obviously try our best to make these prints as affordable as possible and hate it ourselves when the shipping is way too expensive…and then there is customs.  We’ll be exploring, and likely implementing, a second option for our international buyers that allows you to select first class shipping.  It should help save about $15-25 depending on where you live, so stay tuned for that.

Thirdly, today we received an email from the director of Trollhuner, André Øvredal, and we got his stamp of approval.  He loved the prints and we thought it’d be fun if you all knew that it has his support.

Lastly, for those of you that bought a variant print, below is a tease of what’s coming your way.  They look amazing and we think you’ll really love them even more when you see them in person.

We’re glad to say that our dreams of seeing a Trollhunter print have been answered but there’s still so much more to come from us.  Thanks again for your support and be sure to let us know how we’re doing, what you want to see from us, or drop us a line showing off your framed up FAMP Art print(s).

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.

TROLLLLLLL! Get Your Gear Ready, ‘Trollhunter’ Will Be on the Move Next Week

It feels like it’s been forever since we first dropped our City of God prints about a month ago to help officially launch the business, but since that release we’ve been eagerly awaiting to show you all our next set of prints and provide you with details on when you can buy it.

Yesterday, Blurppy.com officially unveiled our first print set for André Øvredal’s awesome Norwegian flick Trollhunter (aka Trolljegeren) by artist Chris Weston. If you haven’t seen this movie then I suggest finding a way watch it. It’s a highly creative and fun flick about a group of students who investigate mysterious bear killings in Norway only to discover that the man who is hunting these bears is actually hunting trolls.

Trollhunter was one of my top 10 favorite films of 2011 and is a movie that has rarely disappointed anyone that I’ve ever recommended it to. It’s for these reasons why we felt it absolutely deserved a screen printed makeover and was thrilled when Chris Weston said yes to the project.

We will be releasing two prints for the film, both of which measure 24”x36”, and they will be made available through the FAMP Art website on October 21st at a random time between 3pm and 8pm EST. The regular (English) version will have a run of 145 prints and will cost $45, the variant (Norwegian) version will have a run of 70 prints and will cost $60. There will be a limit of one per person per household.

If you know anyone that loves this movie be sure to tell them about this print, we’re confident they’ll love it.

Check out the art below and be sure to follow us in some way shape or form to find out exactly when the prints go on sale.
