Check This Out: Tim Doyle's Superb Poster for Kevin Smith's 'Clerks'
Though he's been busy promoting the hell out of Red State (a film which I enjoyed at Sundance enough to see it a second time with a much tighter cut), Kevin Smith's past films are what made him the filmmaker he is today. Though some have criticized him for being so vocal about certain subjects on Twitter and such, you can't deny that his career-making film Clerks is an indie classic, and probably his best film to date. The film is still very much a part of pop culture and independent film. Therefore I'm pleased to present a great new poster from Tim Doyle, found by SlashFilm today, that effectively captures the spirit of that indie classic.
Here's Tim Doyle's fantastic original poster for Kevin Smith's Clerks (click for larger version):
Thanks to Poster Shizzle (via SlashFilm) for pointing out this fantastic new piece that will be handed out at a special screening of Clerks at the Blue Starlite Drive-In Theater in Austin, Texas where Austin Books & Comics is also flying in Brian O'Halloran (who plays Dante in the film) to sign the prints. Doyle says: "With this poster, instead of focusing on one iconic scene, or do the floating-head-thing, I wanted to an Animal House poster thing where you show a bunch of stuff and scenes happening all at once, like the whole movie happening in one image." The Death Star is a really nice touch.
The regular edition print (above) is 16"×26" and is signed and numbered in an edition of 325. The variant black and white edition (which you can see right here) is in an edition of 125. If you want one, it's probably best to go to the screening if you can, otherwise Doyle says you can e-mail or call the shop to be put on a waiting list. Any prints not sold over the weekend will be given out on a first-come first-served basis.
