"We control the engine, we control the world. Without that, we have nothing." We're excited to exclusively debut the new artwork by Alice X. Zhang being sold at the New York Comic-Con coming up in New York City next weekend. FAMP Art has officially licensed and will be selling 24"x18" prints of this art for Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer - an archival giclee print on Somerset Velvet fine art paper. FAMP Art, located at booth #2366 at New York Comic-Con 2015, specializes in creating officially licensed, limited edition screen printed posters of foreign films, classics and more. This is their latest poster unveiling - view in full below.
Alice X. Zhang's print for Bong Joon-ho's sci-fi Snowpiercer, released 2014 in the US, starring Chris Evans.
The art above is by the wonderfully talented pop culture illustrator, Alice X. Zhang. Most of the prints will be available at the convention and there is a high probability that they will all be signed by Alice, who will also be in attendance at the convention. Whatever prints aren’t sold will be placed in the shop online at fampart.com after the convention. Her art in this print for the sci-fi Snowpiercer is referencing the sketch done in the movie of the group, which is in turn a reference to the graphic novel that the movie is based on, Le Transperceneige. The 24"x18" print will be sold for $50 at NYCC, hand numbered edition of 150 pieces.
FAMP Art will be at New York Comic-Con 2015 all weekend at booth #2366. The poster will go on sale on October 8th when the convention floor opens and will be sold throughout the weekend along with some current prints. FAMP Art founder Alex states, "After I had seen The Host and was blown away by Mother, it was clear from that get-go that I had to find a way to license a Bong Joon Ho film." As for the final results: "That image represents a turning point for the film making it perfectly suited to be refined and adjusted for a feature poster. We love the how the image came out and think Alice did a great job executing the idea."
