From time to time, the Poster Gods will look fondly upon the dirty unwashed masses.  “We should do something nice for these hopelessly addicted fools”, the Gods say, and after much brainstorming about what that nice thing should be, they will just shrug their shoulders and say, “Eh, just let everyone get a poster this time”.  This is what’s known as an “open” (or “timed”) edition, and it only happens once in a while with artists or galleries that you’d actually get excited about.

Well, guess what, kids?  The Gods have smiled upon you again, and this time they’re doing it by combining three of your favorite things:  Jurassic Park, artist Mark Englert , and individually-sketched posters.  Wanna know more?  Sure ya do.  Meet me after the jump.

Alright, folks, we’re going to make this one short and sweet: artist Mark Englert—last seen churning out a truly inspired print based on Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained (am I the only one that missed Broomhilda’s face in the mountain range at first glance?  I am, aren’t I?) for Gallery 1988—has made official something that he’s been talking about doing for a long time now.  Here’s the news:

My newest print, “It’s a dinosaur” will be on sale for 24 hours, starting this Wednesday, February 20th at 10am PST. The price will be $50 and the edition size will be determined by how many are purchased, plus a couple extra for family and friends…It’s 5-colors with a metallic ink, 18×24 inches with a 1-inch border all around and because it’s being printed to order, it could take 2-3 months to ship. If you’d like a sketch in the margin, it will cost $30. I can also draw in more silhouetted figures and/or dinosaurs in the foreground for $30 a piece!

What’s it look like?  Let’s go to the tape:

Pretty snazzy, no?  Well, that’s not all:  Englert’s sweetening the deal by tossing four AP copies of his recently released Fringe print (the best use of Englert’s mind-blowing glow-in-the-dark skills that we’ve seen in a long, long time) and five copies of his Django Unchained print into random tubes.  Oh, and on top of that?  Englert’s happy to let fans buy more than one print this time.  Want four copies of It’s a Dinosaur, each one with a different Ghostbuster on it?  Totally doable, there are no restrictions on how many copies you can order.  So, y’know:  head on over to Mark’s Big Cartel page and get spending, Daddy Warbucks.
