Mondo has unveiled its new Elektra screenprint by artist Craig Drake, ahead of the poster’s release tomorrow.  The poster paints the Marvel Comics character in stark red and black contrast, wielding both her sword and katana, but if you want one you’ll have to act quickly—only 275 are being made.  Also in the world of print news, Acme Archives will be releasing a pair of Mark Englert-crafted Star Wars posters, “I’m Here to Rescue You: Tattoine” and “I’m Here to Rescue You: Endor”.  Instead of only making a limited quantity, this is a timed release beginning Sunday, May 25th at 10am PDT and running through Wednesday, May 28t at 3pm PDT.  The edition size will be determined by the number of prints ordered, and the posters will go on sale on Dark Ink’s website.

Hit the jump to check out all three posters in full.  If you want to grab the Elektra print, follow @MondoNews on Twitter and wait for the random release sometime tomorrow.

If you live in the Los Angeles area and want to see some cool art, you need to get over to the Hero Complex Gallery.  That’s because the gallery is hosting Craig Drake’s first solo show and it’s loaded with awesome artwork done on paper, metal (including mega metal prints that are 60 x 40!), and wood.  While I’ve been a fan of Drake’s work for a long time, I’ll admit the show was another level.  As you can see in the pictures, Drake took on some iconic movies, people, and TV shows including Die Hard, The Thing, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Bruce Lee, Buffy, Cowboy Bebop, Game of Thrones, and a lot more.

Since most of you live outside of Los Angeles, I took pictures of everything on display and you can check out over 40 pictures after the jump.  In addition, the gallery will be releasing what didn’t sell out on their website tomorrow, so no matter where you live, you can purchase something.  Be warned, if you check out the pictures you’re probably going to want to buy something.

Let me be very clear: if you live in the Los Angeles area and either love Jaws or cool art, you have very little time to get your ass to Hero Complex Gallery.  For only three days, the gallery is hosting “Smile, you son of a bitch!” and it’s an awesome Jaws-themed show filled with great original art, very limited posters, and a few things that aren’t for sale like original storyboards from the movie.  The show opened last night and I was extremely impressed with everything on display.  Since the show only runs until tomorrow night, and most of you live outside of Los Angeles, I took pictures of everything and you can check out over 80 pictures after the jump.  In addition, the gallery will be releasing what didn’t sell out last night on their website today, so no matter where you live, you can purchase something.

Finally, I’ve been to a lot of Los Angeles gallery shows.  This is one of the better ones.  I really recommend checking this one out for yourself if you’ve got the time.

On Friday, July 5th, Hero Complex Gallery in L.A., along with Planet Pulp, opened their new gallery show “RED”.  As the name implies, the art was done in the theme of the color, and the walls of the gallery were covered with some great work by over fifty artists.

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.

Limited Paper: Mondo Announces Second ADVENTURE TIME Gallery Show from Artists JJ Harrison, Rich Kelly, Craig Drake; BLACK BEETLE Online Drop

by     Posted 1 year, 168 days ago

Mondo’s made no secret of the fact that they’re really, really, really into Pendleton Ward and Cartoon Network’s blockbuster animated series, Adventure Time.  Last year, they held a special marathon screening for the series at the Alamo Drafthouse (complete with an Adventure Time-themed menu, which gave birth do the Rainicorn-colored hot dogs that still making regular appearances in Limited Paper’s most terrifying nightmares), released a print to commemorate the event, and opened an Adventure Time-themed gallery show.

Sporadic Adventure Time-themed releases were dropped in the months that followed, often enough that rumors circulated that a second AT-themed show was headed to the Mondo Gallery.  And—as some of you may have already heard—the rumor’s now been confirmed:  a second Adventure Time-themed showcase will open towards the end of this month…and this time Ward’s series is bringing J.G. Quintel’s Regular Show along for the ride.  More on this (as well as an update re: Francesco Francavilla’s Black Beetle print) after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Hero Complex Gallery’s ARCH NEMESIS Opens Friday with New Art by Craig Drake, Laurent Durieux, Marko Manev, Tim Anderson and More

Despite what Hero Complex Gallery’s name might lead you to believe, not every HCG show is superhero-related.  Often clever, generally awesome, and featuring a consistently talented pool of artists?  Yes, for sure.  Wall-to-wall prints featuring spandex-clad mutants, Kryptonian refugees, and/or unkillable Canadians with razor-sharp claws?  Not so much.

Their next show– Arch Nemesis, which opens this Friday at the gallery’s Los Angeles location—falls somewhere in-between.  Yes, you’ll get all the Batman, Fantastic Four, and Justice League posters you can handle…but they’ll be rubbing elbows with new prints based on geek-friendly properties like Predator, The Wizard of Oz, and Masters of The Universe.  Wanna see some preview images from the show (and find out how you can win one of two extremely rare variant prints)?  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 Preview: Hero Complex Gallery’s OSCAR LEGENDS Show Brings New Work from Craig Drake, New Flesh, Cuyler Smith, Blunt Graffix, More

by     Posted 1 year, 285 days ago

It seems like everywhere we turn right now, some sort of Oscars-themed drop is taking place:  Gallery 1988’s got a three-day poster-palooza planned for the coming weekend, Mondo’s presumably hard at work on this year’s crop of Oscars Night poster drops (fingers crossed for a Stout Django Unchained), and—last but certainly not least—Hero Complex Gallery has their own Oscars-themed show on deck:  Oscar Legends brings together new art from Craig Drake, Cuyler Smith, Alice Lin, Bruce Yan, Blunt Graffix, James Rheem Davies, and a number of other artists regularly featured here at Limited Paper.  Wanna see some of what’s going to be available when the show opens this Friday?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

Limited Paper: Bottleneck Gallery’s GET A ROOM Opens This Friday With New Art by Godmachine, Cuyler Smith, Craig Drake, More

There’s zero empirical evidence to back up the theory, but here at Limited Paper we tend to think that there aren’t a lot of hard-core collectors out there with big Valentine’s Day plans.  Quite frankly, when the vast majority of your spending money is being pushed towards one fancifully-colored 24x36” sheet of paper after another, there isn’t much budget left for schmoozing the ladies (or the gents, if that’s your thing).  Sure, you could’ve bought her that diamond-encrusted toaster she’s always wanted, but there’s something like 400 prints dropping this week:  one has to prioritize.

But what if you have a significant other…and they’re also into poster collecting?  Well, good news, buddy:  Bottleneck Gallery’s Get a Room (opening in NYC this Friday) is filled with a ton of romantic, movie-themed posters your guy or gal will be jazzed to have hanging on their wall, and we’ve got preview pics for you (including new work from Craig Drake, Godmachine, and Cuyler Smith) after the jump.

Earlier today, the word started spreading, and soon enough we were all paying attention:  “sometime soon”, a Mondo-related announcement was going to drop via our friends over at Ain’t It Cool News, and…well, and nothing:  that was pretty much all we got by way of a hint.  Mercifully, the wait for AICN’s announcement didn’t last long, and now we all know what the big secret was:  this week, Mondo will drop a Steven Spielberg double-header—a poster based on Jaws (by Laurent Durieux) and another based on E.T. The Extraterrestrial (by Mike Mitchell).

Wanna see these new prints, find out where they’re dropping, when, and what each one’s gonna cost ya?  Meet me on the other side, folks.

Last night, the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles premiered their new exhibition “Weapon of Choice” and it was loaded with cool artwork “inspired by prominent characters of fiction, historical reference, or pop culture, and their relationship with their iconic weapon.”   Last week, Scott wrote a preview of the exhibition in Limited Paper, but with the show opening, I decided to stop by and take pictures of everything on display and it’s definitely worth checking out.  In addition, later today Hero Complex will be “dropping” what’s still available on their website, so if you see something you like you can pick it up.  Keep in mind, everything for sale is very limited, so don’t wait too long to purchase.  Hit the jump for the pics.
