Limited Paper PSA: Odd City Entertainment, Artist NE Are Dropping a Stunning AMITYVILLE HORROR Poster This Week

by     Posted 1 year, 183 days ago

The biggest debate in Poster World last year had to be the three-part “Are too many galleries/poster retailers popping up; were these new galleries dooming their future earning potential by flooding 2012’s market with astoundingly mediocre prints; and who the hell is convincing artists that people want even more twee posters based on Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic (and does that person deserve death)?”  At the rate things were going there at the end of last year, we were expecting a new gallery to open every ten minutes in 2013.

But so far this year—far as I can recall, anyway—we’ve only seen one new guy step up to the plate.   To be fair, though, Odd City Entertainment didn’t just casually step up to any plate:  they announced their presence by dropping a stunning Dazed and Confused print (created by none other than Chuck Sperry, Professional Poster God).  And now—just a few weeks later—they’ve somehow managed to match that first print with a little help from Austin-based artist NE.  Wanna see?  Meet me after the jump.

Limited Paper: Mark Englert Auctioning a Pair of Extremely Rare ALIENS-Themed Prints For Boston Red Cross and Expressobeans.com

For some time now, rumors have been circulating about an extremely rare Aliens-themed poster being worked on by Mark Englert.  These rumors were ignited when the artist posted some process shots of the piece to his personal blog a few months ago, at which time he also revealed that Close Your Eyes, Baby was…a commission piece.  In other words, Mark Englert’s latest wouldn’t be finding its way to a wide release.  Fans were bummed…but rumors persisted that there might be some hope yet.

As it turns out, there is a bit of hope if you’re interested in obtaining one of Englert’s Aliens-themed prints…but you’ll have to act quick if you’re interested in picking one up.  Read all about it after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Mondo Announces New REPO MAN Posters by Tyler Stout and Jay Shaw

by     Posted 1 year, 190 days ago

With the Criterion Collection’s Repo Man on the verge of being releases, we’d been expecting a Jay Shaw print to drop any minute, one to match the design he created for the film’s cover box…and that print did just get announced.  But did anyone expect the other Repo Man poster Mondo’s dropping later this week?  Just weeks after unleashing a slew of new Tyler Stout prints at the Mondo Gallery’s Stout & Taylor show, Tyler Stout’s Repo Man gets announced.  You as shocked as we were?  Think about it while you check out the specs on this week’s Mondo prints, after the jump…

If you read the interview that Collider’s Steve “Frosty” Weintraub recently conducted with Mondo’s Justin Ishmael, you know that Austin’s biggest screenprint retailer is dead serious about making vinyl a consistent part of their output.  Their most recent vinyl release—the soundtrack to Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, featuring artwork by the one-and-only Tyler Stout—sold out quickly upon release, and the company’s previous vinyl releases have also sold well…and now we’ve got the details on their next vinyl drop.  Pretend you didn’t read the headline and find out when the album’s dropping, what’s on it, and who did the artwork after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Mondo Dropping Their Remaining WonderCon Posters Tomorrow, Including New Work From Kevin Tong, Richey Beckett, and Mike Mitchell

by     Posted 1 year, 195 days ago

A few weeks back, the Mondo crew traveled to this year’s WonderCon and unleashed a handful of new posters:  a Rear Window print from Kevin Tong, a striking Scarface piece from Mike Mitchell, Richey Beckett’s nightmare-inducing take on Shelob’s Lair from Lord of The Rings, and—last but certainly not least—a new Adventure Time poster from fan-favorite JJ Harrison.  This was all well and good for the thousands of WonderCon attendees, but what about the rest of the Mondo fanbase–would there be any prints left for them?

Turns out that, yes, there are, and tomorrow they’re all going on sale via the Mondo website.  Wanna see what they look like, what they’ll cost you, and how many of them are floating around out there?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Bottleneck Gallery’s WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT Celebrates Glow-in-the-Dark via New Prints by Craig Drake, Bruce Yan, Mark Lone, Godmachine, More

For the past year or so, Limited Paper’s been wondering which gallery would be the first to announce an “all Glow-in-The-Dark” show.  Indeed, if we consider GID’s rise in popularity over the past year or two, such a showcase seems inevitable.   But just because the idea’s an obvious one doesn’t guarantee that it’d result in success: more than any other factor, an all-GID show would almost certainly live or die based on the artists hired to participate.

Turns out, there was nothing to worry about: our friends at NYC’s Bottleneck Gallery have pulled the trigger on an all-GID showcase, and–based on the preview images we’ve been cleared to share with you today—Bottleneck understood just how crucial hiring the right artists would be.  Wanna see new (and GID-infused!) posters from Craig Drake, Godmachine, Bruce Yan, and a slew of others?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper Exclusive: Mark Englert Holds Onto The (Glow-in-The-Dark) Throne With a Stunning New GAME OF THRONES Poster

On April 12th, NYC’s Bottleneck Gallery will open When The Lights Go Out, a sprawling showcase featuring nothing but GID (Glow-in-The-Dark)-enhanced artwork.  It’s a great concept for a show (just imagine an entire gallery’s worth of new posters lit solely with blacklights), and from the beginning we knew that Bottleneck Gallery would amass a giant roster of talented artists to pull it off…but for our money, the whole thing wouldn’t have felt complete without the involvement of Mark Englert.

And—well, whatta ya know—it turns out that Mark Englert’s contribution to When The Lights Go Out is even more impressive in its use of GID than we expected it to be.  It may, in fact, be his best GID piece to date.  See it for yourselves after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Ken Taylor’s Remaining BEETLEJUICE, RAMBO, WATCHMEN, METROPOLIS Posters (And More) Drop Tomorrow Via Mondo

by     Posted 1 year, 202 days ago

When the Mondo Gallery’s Stout & Taylor showcase opened last month, it was hard not to look at the crowd assembled outside and think, “Tonight, there are two types of collectors in the world:  those who are getting publicly shitfaced in advance of some seriously reckless spending somewhere in downtown Austin…and everyone else”.

Well, for those that couldn’t make it there that night, there’s good news:  the Mondo Gallery has announced that a number of Taylor’s Stout & Taylor prints will be made available to all via the official Mondo store.  Wanna know what’ll be available and what it’s gonna cost you?  Meet me after the jump, Peaches.

We’re headed into the fourth month of 2013, and so far it seems like there’s been no slowing the pace set by galleries, artists, and fine screenprint retailers everywhere back in 2012:  it’s only two days into April, and already a number of impressive-looking gallery shows (and a Mondo screening in Kansas City) have been announced, including Spoke Art’s Scorsese-themed showcase, Mondo’s Mike Mitchell solo show, and Bottleneck Gallery’s Glow-in-The-Dark orgy, When The Lights Go Out.  Wanna find out when each of these shows will be opening its doors?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Mondo Reveals Jaw-Dropping New GAME OF THRONES Posters by Aaron Horkey and Richey Beckett

At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it’d only been weeks since the Mondo crew (who you really oughtta be following by now on Twitter via @MondoNews) announced their acquisition of the Lord of the Rings license.  Fantasy fans were pretty thrilled about that headed into the Con (several people told me Tyler Stout was “definitely” going to show up to the Con and drop a new poster set for Peter Jackson’s franchise), but they had a different, equally exciting surprise waiting for them that week:  the start of a Game of Thrones series.  We’ve seen a ton of Game of Thrones-themed prints since then, but the two dropping tomorrow—from artists Aaron Horkey and Richey Beckett—are two of the best in the whole run.  See ‘em after the jump, folks.

by     Posted 1 year, 215 days ago

What we’ve got here is your classic “Good News/Bad News” situation.  Bad news first:  an impressive variety of real-world shenanigans (from geographical shenanigans to technological shenanigans , we saw it all this weekend) conspired to keep the following interview from getting in front of you sooner…but don’t reach for those sleeping pills and dry-cleaning bags just yet, folks:  there’s good news, too.

Namely this:  while you might’ve had to wait a few extra days for this interview to go live, I’m prepared to wager that you’ll find it to be well worth the wait.  It would not be hyperbole to say that the resulting writeup—which you’re about to read– is one of the most-interesting, most informative interviews I’ve ever had the pleasure of conducting for Collider.  See what I mean after the jump, folks.

Are we in the middle of Mondo’s busiest week ever?  It’s certainly starting to feel that way.  For the past 24 hours, new announcements have dropped with clockwork regularity, revealing new prints from Limited Paper-favored artists like Martin Ansin, Ken Taylor, and JC Richards, and most of that is on top of the heavily-hyped, sure-to-be-awesome, in-all-likelihood-record-selling Stout & Taylor show opening at the Mondo Gallery on Friday evening.  What do these prints look like, when can you get ‘em, and what can you expect in the way of coverage from Limited Paper over the next few days?  Find out after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Bottleneck Gallery and Raid71 Reveal THE POPULAR FACE OF NEW YORK Featuring KING KONG, SPIDER-MAN and THE GHOSTBUSTERS

As we speak, SXSW 2013 has turned downtown Austin into an absolute war zone:  traffic’s backed up all the way to Oklahoma, pedestrians everywhere are being run down by hipsters on fixed-gear bikes, and—perhaps most distressingly—rumors persist that as many as two hundred SXSW Film badgeholders  senselessly wasted hours of their lives watching a film called Big-Ass Spider.  Truly, it has been a harrowing week.

But up in New York City, our friends at Bottleneck Gallery are about to kick off a preview sale for their first-ever solo show, an event comprised entirely of artwork by UK artist Raid71 they’re calling The Popular Face of New York.  What sorta prints are going to be available for purchase, and when can you pick a few of them up?  Find out after the jump.
