Check This Out: Tim Doyle's 'Liberty Leading'-Inspired 'Fanboys' Print
May the Schwartz be with you. Another new custom poster for a fanboy favorite, but this one also kicks ass, so check it out. Artist Tim Doyle has created some new poster art, inspired by Delacroix's famous painting Liberty Leading the People, for Kyle Newman's Fanboys, that recent Star Wars nerds road comedy that took forever to get released. The art was made for Austin Books & Comics upcoming screening as part of the Hot n' Nerdy Films series hosted at the Blue Starlite Drive In theater. Austin always has the best events. Doyle made an original print and a colored variant, which you can see below from his blog (via GeekTyrant).
Doyle calls the blue one the "Night Falls on the Federation" version that is signed and numbered in an edition of 150. Fanboys is not really my favorite film, I honestly barely liked it, but I do like this print. Doyle is also responsible for some other great art, like that recent Clerks poster and his Transformers: The Movie poster. The Fanboys print (as seen above) comes 18"×24" and is signed and numbered in an edition of 325. They're being sold locally in Austin, Texas, but if you don't live there and still want one, Tim's blog has info on how to email Austin Books to get on their waiting list for the leftovers. Anyone a big fan of Fanboys?
