Over the past year, Craig Drake has been killing it on the poster scene by taking his unique style and applying it to such subjects as The Thing, The Matrix, Daft Punk, Kill Bill, Akira, and a number of other pop culture properties. And while he’s already created some memorable Blade Runner posters, the folks at Hero Complex Gallery are releasing his new “Spinner” poster and it might be his best one yet.
According to the gallery, the print will be a timed edition (meaning you have a set number of hours/days to purchase the poster, and then it’s never sold again). The “24″ X 36″ poster will be available beginning at 9am Wednesday, July 3rd and finishing on Sunday, July 7th at midnight. In addition, the gallery will be producing a very limited metal version of the poster, and one lucky fan is going to win a “golden ticket”, which will allow that fan to commission a print from Drake. Hit the jump to check out the poster and for more info.
The big news about the poster is not only that everyone that wants one will be able to purchase it since it’s a timed edition (except the metal version which is limited to 35), but that one person who purchases a poster will win a golden ticket. The gallery says the ticket will give you “the opportunity to commission a print with Craig Drake.” I don’t know the exact details of what that means, but I would imagine you would get to pick a subject and Drake would do a poster, which would be very cool. However, the fine print may state that there are some things he won’t draw, but like I said, I don’t know the exact details of the deal.
In addition, if you live in the Los Angeles area, this Friday the Hero Complex Gallery is opening their newest show entitled “Red.” If you spend $100 or more you’re automatically entered to win a free metal version of the Spinner poster. Here are more details on the show.
These are the “Spinner” versions that will be available in the timed release sale:
- 24×36 Vertical Paper
- 36×24 Horizontal Paper
- 36×24 Horizontal Metal (Variant Limited Edition Timed Release will not excede 35)
