So, it’s turning out to be quite the interesting week for the poster-collecting community, but we can help but feel that it’s gotta be even more interesting for frequent Limited Paper readers: not only did we see a long-awaited release from one of our favorite working artists (Mark Englert’s You  Are My Lucky Star variant) but we also saw the arrival of Mark’s first-ever collaboration with Mondo  (a pretty-damn-cool Back to The Future print).  And speaking of which:  tonight, we’ve got Mondo’s latest Gallery show to attend.  Yup, it’s been a jam-packed, fairly exciting week…

But it ain’t over yet, folks, and—as it turns out—our friends over at Spoke Art have several new posters headed your way this afternoon…and one of them is going to come as quite the surprise to anyone who’s been following along with Limited Paper over the past month.  Wanna see what’s dropping via Spoke Art in a few hours?  Sure ya do:  meet me after the jump, folks.

Holy crap, folks—we better get started.  Spoke Art is releasing the posters below in just a few hours (you’ll want to head on over to their site, maybe do a little poking around until you think you’re ready to camp out on the “Store” page for…however-many hours), so we wanna get this article up and running ASAP.  Here’s the first few…none of which are the “surprise” mentioned in the intro:

  • Labyrinth by Max Dalton
  • 18x24”
  • $50 giclee edition
  • Hand-Numbered out of 100

  • Labyrinth by Sam Smith
  •  18x24”
  • $40 screenprint edition
  • Features Glow-in-The-Dark-Layer (see below)

Aaand here’s the Glow-in-The-Dark (GID) layer, for anyone that’s interested to see what that entails:

Now, those are the two Labyrinth prints Spoke Art’s selling today, but they’re also going to be adding  this 8x10” (giclee-printed) lobby card to the first 100 orders they receive:  yes, if you’re one of the first 100 people to place an order at Spoke Art this afternoon, you’ll end up with the lobby card below, totally free:

Let’s move on from Labyrinth-related stuff (sorry, Bryan H.)…but we can go ahead and keep Jennifer Connelly on-hand, apparently:  Spoke Art’s not just releasing prints that celebrate Connelly’s descent into a Jim Henson-approved, puppet-and-codpiece-filled hell , oh no—they’re also releasing this, which also has a GID layer:

  • Phenomena by Sam Smith
  • 18x24”
  • $40 screenprint edition
  • Hand-Numbered out of 50
  • Has GID layer

Now, with all of those prints now accounted for, it’s time to check out that surprise I mentioned all the way back in the intro.  Chances are, you’ve already skipped down to the bottom of this page to see what the hell it was I was teasing (that’s what I would’ve done, anyway:  if you’ve actually been patiently reading all this nonsense about lobby cards and Jennifer Connelly and codpieces and blah, blah, blah all this time…?  Well, we salute you), so let’s get everyone else caught up with you now:

  • Kill Bill by Alexander Iaccarino
  • 18x24”
  • $50 giclee edition
  • Hand-Numbered out of 100

Alex-Iaccarino-Kill-Bill-Spoke-Art

So, if you thought you’d see Alexander Iaccarino produce a Kill Bill poster this week for Spoke Art, raise your hand.  Anyone?  No?  That’s what I thought:  when Spoke Art’s Ken Harman told me about this one earlier in the week, I was pretty damn shocked—after all, it was just a few weeks ago that we all watched Alex go from “dude drawing some stuff and putting it on his website” to “Dude with several hundred $60 orders to fulfill, a few hundred Akira posters to print, and however-many tubes to order” in the space of 24 hours.  To see him go from that…to his work with Naughty Dog on The Last of Us…and now to see him cranking out a Kill Bill poster with Spoke Art (releasing the same day that Mondo intends to drop Kill Bill posters as its newest gallery show, it might be worth noting), well, it’s just not the direction I believed this week was headed in.

So, what’ve you gotta do to get Iaccarino, Smith, and Dalton’s latest prints?  Well, you need to pay very close attention to whatever happens over on the Spoke Art website (we’re thinking you’re gonna want to be in the “Store” section at this link, but post up wherever you feel like you’re most likely to score), particularly once we pass…oh, I dunno, Noon, Central Standard Time?  I don’t know for sure when things are dropping, of course, but if I were a betting man, I’d say that you’ve got about that long to direct your attention elsewhere.  After that, you need to be focused on Spoke Art’s site.

And even if ya don’t score one of those Iaccarino prints on this drop…and even if ya missed Mark Englert’s first-ever Mondo poster yesterday (got an extra variant?  Hit me up, I may have something—something within reason, of course– that I’m willing to trade for it), his Lucky Star Variant, or whatever else that dropped this week…don’t be too bummed:  tomorrow, I’m going to be back with a walking tour video (or two) from Mondo’s latest Gallery Show, along with exclusive interviews with the guys headlining that show, Craig Drake and Robert Brandenburg.  So cheer up, candy-ass:  your week wasn’t a total wash!

And, hey, why don’t you head on over to this page, just to make sure you’re following along with me on Twitter (via @LimitedPaper).  I’ll be keeping you updated with pics and info throughout the show, but don’t forget to check back in with Limited Paper on Saturday afternoon:  that’s when all that other stuff promised above oughtta be showing up!  As always, if you’re a gallery owner, artist, or just some guy/girl with a hot bit of poster-related gossip you’d like to share, be sure to hit me up directly via email at LimitedPaper@gmail.com.  Oh, and if you’re planning on being in Austin—and, more specifically, at tomorrow night’s Mondo Gallery show—be sure to introduce yourself:  it’s always cool to meet readers, and I’d love to get some reader-reactions on tape for our post-show writeup.  Everyone else?  To the comments section with you.  Stay tuned for more, guys:  lots on the way, and I’m pretty sure a lot of it is gonna blow your mind!
