Odd City Entertainment just keeps bringing the heat with their print releases. They came right out of the gate, with a successful and completely sold out Pacific Rim series and now they are proud to announce their next print release will be for the Coen Brothers fan favorite film, Fargo.
On August 21st, the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas, will be screening Fargo as part of their Summer Classic Film Series. Focusing on Film Noir, and films that took that genre in a new direction, the Academy Award winning film will be featured on the big screen and in a limited edition screenprint. Odd City in conjunction with the Paramount Theatre, enlisted the help of polish artist Gabz to tackle this property. Hit the jump for more.
Here are the prints and pricing information:

Paramount Theatre Film Fans will receive priority when purchasing prints. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Austin Film Society.
Odd City has been working with Gabz for awhile on this particular print and are excited to finally see it come to fruition. Here is what Odd City CEO Roman Morales had to say about it.
“Fargo was the first piece Odd City had fully produced with Gabz. There were a lot of late nights and several weeks of back and forth to make sure this piece was perfect. The versions that had been considered and dismissed could fill a book. There were people with their heads chopped in half, outrageously brilliant colors, and even a landscape version. If there was a book on the prints that Gabz had produced to date, I have to believe there would be an entire chapter dedicated to Fargo alone. Gabz wanted nothing more than perfection. With the cooperation of the cast, the tools were all laid out in front of him. All he had to do was let his imagination run wild. I believe he nailed it.”

Stateside at the Paramount, built in 1935 as The State Theatre, stands next to the Paramount Theatre on Congress Avenue in downtown Austin, Texas. At approximately 300 seats, Stateside at the Paramount boasts an intimate and comfortable setting for both film and live performances. Most recently, the venue has hosted diverse events—the SXSW Film Festival, standup comedy, and exhibitions by local nonprofit arts organizations—that reflect the spirit of the Austin community.
Grzegorz Domaradzki, the artist known as Gabz, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań, Poland with a Masters Degree in Graphic Arts and Drawing. His creative process has evolved from a desire to make his work more broadly appealing and optimistic. Each piece he produces captivates and brings to the subject from which he drew inspiration, a unique illustrative story. For more information on this artist, visit his website.
