ENJOY THE SHOW

See the Art from Raid71's 'Illuminate' Solo Show at Bottleneck NYC

Illuminate

I love this guy's art so much I'm proud to say I have one of his pieces on my wall. There's a new show from artist "Raid71" opening at the fantastic Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY this weekend. The show is called "Illuminate" and focuses on his unique style with vivid colors. His pieces are inspired heavily by Blade Runner, but he also has work from Tron, Taxi Driver, Midnight Cowboy, Dark City, Akira, Mean Streets, The Fisher King and more. He does some excellent work, and it really stands out on a wall, it's the kind that you want to buy and hang everywhere. Luckily we've got an early look at some art from the show.

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth

When Mondo Ruled the Pop Art World! The next show opening at Mondo Gallery in Austin will be dedicated completely to Jurassic Park, just the first film, the 1993 Steven Spielberg Rated PG-13 dinosaur island masterpiece. Mondo has announced the new show called "When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth", inspired by the banner in the lobby in the original film (see above), featuring tons of artists submitting all kinds of work inspired by Jurassic Park. The first piece can be seen below, by Francesco Francavilla, and of course it features the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex. I can't wait to see all of the art, but we'll have to wait until June.

Poster Posse Whips Up More Amazing Artwork for 'Tomorrowland'

Tomorrowland Poster Posse

To the future we go! As always, we love it when the kind folks at Poster Posse release another new series of custom curated artwork for an upcoming movie, and this time they chose to highlight Tomorrowland from director Brad Bird, starring George Clooney & Britt Robertson. This new set features some wild poster art that hints at the inspiration of Walt Disney, to the more simple look at the "Tomorrowland" city in the movie. Earlier this week we posted a look at the new Tomorrowland Mondo poster by Kevin Tong, also showing the futuristic Tomorrowland from in the movie. I want to go there. I love the poster within a poster, the second one down seen below by Simon Delart, so good. Only a few more weeks until this is in theaters!

Kevin Tong's Stellar Mondo Art for Brad Bird's Sci-Fi 'Tomorrowland'

Kevin Tong - Tomorrowland

"What if there was a placeā€¦ where nothing was impossible?" Mondo has unveiled some stunning new art that they're selling in promotion for the upcoming release of Disney's Tomorrowland, directed by Brad Bird. The new art piece is 24" x 36" screen print designed by Kevin Tong (visit his website), and boy is it gorgeous. The art depicts Tomorrowland in the movie Tomorrowland, complete with transformation from the "real" world in the lower left featuring Casey Newton, played by Britt Robertson. Each of these will go so on sale on Friday, May 22nd when the film opens in theaters. And I'd say they are must have, especially if you're excited for this movie like we are. The variant version, in the evening it looks like, is my favorite one.

Read This: Excellent Movie Comic 'Matinee Junkie' by Jordan Jeffries

Matinee Junkie

Welcome to Another Year at the Movies with Jordan Jeffries. Just a few weeks ago I stopped by the 2015 MoCCA Arts Festival (hosted by the Society of Illustrators) in New York City, sort of like Artists' Alley at Comic-Con minus the rest of Comic-Con and only the artists. There I stumbled across and discovered one amazing, unforgettable comic book dedicated to a love of movies, titled Matinee Junkie. It was written and illustrated by cinephile Jordan Jeffries from New Jersey. I bought a copy of year one and the sequel, Matinee Junkie 2 (for 2014), which recaps each a year of his life as connected to the films he saw - including a full-size scan of the ticket stub. This is a must read comic book for any/every last movie lover out there.

Look: Hero Complex's 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Art Show Pieces

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

For those who don't like their movie posters overly Photoshopped, the print marketing for The Avengers: Age of Ultron has been pretty lackluster (though not as bad as that Entertainment Weekly banner). The only saving grace has been the posters that fans can vote to receive when the film debuts on IMAX screens next week. But thankfully, some much more impressive and fun artwork has surfaced thanks to Marvel's partnering with Hero Complex for a new gallery show that will have over 100 pieces of original work inspired by the comic book sequel. They range from being awesome to just being downright adorable. Look!

Check Out This Adorable Famous Film Lovers Art Print by Max Dalton

Famous Film Lovers

"I've never loved anyone the way I loved you." Well isn't this just lovely. Spoke Art is now selling a print made by artist Max Dalton (website) featuring 24 different famous couples. The piece is officially called "A Love Story", and profiles everyone from Theodore and Samantha in Her, Rick and Ilsa from Casablanca, to Sam and Suzy from Moonrise Kingdom, Ennis and Jack from Brokeback Mountain, to Bob and Charlotte from Lost in Translation, and plenty others. If anything, these couples will make you smile as you think back to all the crazy big screen romance that we've gone through. He even has Kong and Ann, ha! Nice work.

Check Out Anthony Petrie's New 'Rambo: First Blood Part II' Poster

Rambo: First Blood Part II

"To survive a war, you gotta become war." Don't mess with Rambo. Our friends at Grey Matter Art have unveiled an officially licensed printed for Rambo: First Blood Part II starring Sylvester Stallone as they continue to reveal art in their Rambo series. This new print is by artist Anthony Petrie (known best for his fantastic movie map art) featuring Rambo with his bow & arrow from the second movie. The variant version of this print changes the background and colors a bit, making it almost look like it was printed on metal (though that doesn't seem to be the case). Prints are priced $45/$55 and go on sale next week. Take a look.

French Artist Turns Modern Movies into VHS for April Fool's Day Joke

VHS Movies - Golem13

Maybe these should actually be real, I'd buy a few of them. "I created these VHS covers for 'april's fool day' pretending a parisian hipster named 'Stan' only watched modern films and TV series on VHS," he writes on his Tumblr. French artist Golem13 posted a full breakdown on his own blog detailing his fun creating a series of fake VHS tapes and covers for modern movies and TV shows like "Game of Thrones", "The Walking Dead", "Breaking Bad", The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wolf of Wall Street, Gravity, Interstellar and Guardians of the Galaxy. As goofy as all this sounds, these actually look pretty dang cool and I suggest taking a look at some of the photos of the vintage VHS covers below. If anything, for a quick smile + laugh.

Check Out Some of Jock's Early Concept Art for Ava in 'Ex Machina'

Ex Machina Concept Art

"Isn't it strange, to create something that hates you?" With the US release of Alex Garland's new sci-fi Ex Machina just around the corner (on April 10th - go see it!), there's no better time to feature some concept art that appeared earlier in the year (thanks to io9 + CBR). Jock, a famous comic book artist/illustrator, did some concept art work for Garland's Ex Machina when it was in development, helping envision the main robot character Ava played by Alicia Vikander in the film. He tweeted out some of these images in January, and we're just seeing them but it's perfect timing as the film hits theaters here soon. That means everyone finally gets a chance to have their mind opened by the sci-fi fun of Ex Machina (here's my review).

Check Out Fringe Focus' Excellent 'The Desk of Dr. Jones' Art Print

The Desk of Dr. Jones

"It belongs in a museum!" Indeed it does. Or maybe on your wall, in your living room, next to your big TV and endless collection of DVDs. Yea that's the perfect spot for this art print. Our friend Rob Loukotka, who goes under the name "Fringe Focus", has recently debuted a new print called The Desk of Dr. Jones and it's awesome. Loukotka's style utilizes very, very tall (or very wide) prints that feature lots of lush detail. This time he has decided to imagine what the desk of Indiana Jones would look like, featuring some of the famous "MacGuffins" and artifacts he has collected/stolen/interacted with at various points in his wild life.

Check Out Mondo's 'Back to the Future Part II' Print by Matt Taylor

Back to the Future Part II

The celebration of Back to the Future Part II continues as 2015, the year which Marty and Doc travel to the future, continues, and this time it's collectible arthouse Mondo checking in with an awesome new print from Matt Taylor. This print features the DeLorean time machine as it descends from the sky to arrive in the Hill Valley of the future, where flying cars are the norm. Taylor has taken the "Welcome to Hill Valley" sign from the film and replaced it with the title of the movie itself. And through the clouds, you can see the famous town square where the clock tower still stands, and plenty of Back to the Future action takes place.

Check Out Gallery 1988's Wonderful Pop Culture Postcards Artwork

Postcard Correspondence

There are undoubtedly some places from motion pictures that we wish really existed. Whether it's The Grid from TRON or Hill Valley in the year 2015 from Back to the Future Part II or Walley World from National Lampoon's Vacation. Unfortunately, it's just not possible unless you happen to have been able to be on the set of those films. But even then, it's not real. However, a new art show from Gallery 1988 pretends that these locations are real in Postcard Correspondence, which features postcards from various fictional places (some real) from film and television. I would love to get these in the mail. Look!
