Charles Crisler Josh Ritter Free Friday Poster Giveaway


As I have said for years Flatstock Poster Shows are something you should not miss. It's always fun talking to the artist in person and finally getting to meet the ones you only talk through email with. This weekend was not different as I finally got to meet Charles Crisler of 27 Design Co.

Charles was kind enough to give you my fine readers a shot at his great looking Josh Ritter poster. And I will let him tell you about the poster in his own words.:
“Joy to the city, joy to the streets, and joy to you baby, wherever you sleep. Tonight, tonight, tonight…”
Those are part of the lyrics to Josh Ritter’s song Joy To You Baby and a big jumping off point for this poster. Movies like Back To The Future and Stand By Me as well as actual photographs of Bloomington Indiana were all referenced to create this poster. The year that I locked into was 1959, dictated by the newest car – the ’59 Cadillac hearse. The Buskirk-Chumley Theatre, the hardware store, and the church are the real deal! Those are the actual buildings in their true locations in Bloomington. The rest of the city was modified to represent Josh and Gregory’s work.

Now go to the top of the post above the picture and click on comments or scroll down (depends on how you see this post) to leave a comment to have a chance at winning the poster. Don't worry if your comment does not appear immediately I have to approve them before they are published. I will use the Random Number Generator to pick a winner. Entries are limited to ONE PER PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD. Please leave your name with the comment, comments without names will not be accepted. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 PM PST Saturday July 26 with the winner announced on Sunday.

Thank you to Charles Crisler for providing the poster for this weeks giveaway. He put the few remaining Avett Brothers and other posters in his store so be sure to check them all out.

Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein Print Suite 3 Release Details

No comments:

Nakatomi is set to unleash another incredible set of Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein prints upon the world. On Thursday the 24th- at 2pm Central Time, Nakatomi will have these sets available on the Nakatomi website HERE-!

Each of these matched number sets are in editions of 50 worldwide. Half are already spoken for!

Each print measures 20×30 and is signed by the master himself, Bernie Wrightson.
These prints are hand-printed silkscreen images on heavy weight 130lb Cougar Natural stock- to match the other prints in this series.
All domestic (US) orders will ship flat via FedEx, and international orders will ship USPS in 2 tubes. Prints are in hand and ready for immediate shipment.

The 7th print- “Alone” was not included in the original publication, and has never been offered as a print!

But first-a note from Tim Doyle-
“As many of you may know- 2 weeks ago, Bernie suffered a series of small strokes. The original release date of these prints ended up being the very day that this happened. So, we pulled the release for the time being as we wanted to make sure all was well before we proceeded. I’ve been in in contact with both Bernie and his wife Liz, and it looks like his doctors are cautiously optimistic that he will make a full recovery. Bernie is in good spirits, and is anxious to get back to work on his projects. Unfortunately- this event came right at the start of the big Summer convention season- and Bernie had to cancel quite a few appearances. For a guy like Bernie- this means he had to take a significant hit to his wallet, right when he needs it the most to help get through all the medical expenses. So with all that in mind- every purchase you make of Bernie’s art on Nakatomi means that money is going directly to the man himself. You can also contact them directly through his website HERE where Bernie and Liz sell originals of his art. (And quite a few of them are VERY affordable, btw). Bernie’s got the best fans in the world, and we’ve been very pleased that he’s given us the honor of printing his work in silkscreen format. You can help out a living legend in a time of need, and pick up a great limited edition collectible at the same time! See you on site HERE at 2PM Central time on Thursday!

Madsteez StanWEEN Stan Lee Print Release

No comments:

Madsteez is kicking off ComicCon with a print release of none of then Stan Lee. 1xRUN will have StanWEEN on sale Thursday.

"This piece was actually commissioned by Stan Lee himself. Stan personally picked the image he wanted painted and he also picked his catch phrase "excelsior" as the tagline at the bottom. I guess he saw the WEENleton painting and he just had to be painted in a similar fashion." - Madsteez

Jeremy Shoop Nature of the Beast Print

No comments:

It's always good to get an email from a new artist and see something good that is an original idea. Jeremy Shoop let me know about his new print titled Nature of the Beast.

Here is his description of the piece:

This is a political piece about the nature of society and how it functions as a system, a system that doesn’t seem to care about the common people (the majority of society).   The real owners of this country like the bankers, the corporations, and whoever is printing the money are the ones running the show and the people are merely enslaved by the system that’s been set up, it’s a system that has us showing up to those jobs to pay for our living, kind of ironic to earn money to live when all you are doing is working, and most of those jobs has us over worked and under paid just for a reward of some green paper.  So if you’re fortunate to get enough green paper you can by a this, or buy a that, so you can buy the next best thing which most of the time you don’t even need, as society keeps looking at the next big shiny thing, no one seems to notice that the table is titled.  Profit is the engine to this machine and it doesn’t care about the people, corporations are not people, corporations don’t care about what happens to society as a whole it just wants more for themselves and less for us, and it needs more monkeys to obey and keep putting dollars in their pocket.  George Carlin said it best “It’s called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it”.

The print is hand drawn and hand printed 24" x 16.5" screen print on french paper with a signed numbered edition of 22.

He also has a shirt titled Break on Through that is really cool too and it's a Jim Morrison Door reference so automatically it rules.

Flag of Despair & Blood Money HPM Hand Painted Multiples on US Currency Release


Took the picture before they were signed

See how the "Blood" comes through the bullet holes

I hate the NRA their money and influence is stripping the people of their right not to be killed. The majority of people in this country want gun control laws revised. But no one in Congress has the courage to do the will of the people, they would rather keep getting money from the NRA and fill their pockets while the streets fill with blood. The NRA has used scare tactics the past few years saying "Oh they are coming for your guns? " The only people saying that are the NRA who represent the gun and ammo companies. They have cashed in on this scare tactic with record sales and profits for those companies.

Let me be clear on something as well. I don't want your guns, I just dont want the people I care about getting shot but some dumbass that should not have a gun. A 90 second back ground check does not infringe on your rights. As a nation we can do better. 

As a form of protest or whatever you want to call it I give you Flag of Despair and Blood Money HPM's

Back ground on these pieces:

I have been to indoor gun ranges like 4-5 times. First time is scary, the noise is just crazy and I jumped almost every time better now but the first couple of times you hear a shot can be unnerving. Before I had used 9mm just to see what it's like. It's scary let me tell you, the percussion is nuts. You are nervous to pull the trigger then the kick and sound.

As part of this art project I wanted it shot with a real AR15. But I have a problem when I shoot, I'm right handed but left eyed. So shooting a hand gun is not a big deal but a rifle with a sights on it is a problem. Dude at the range helped me to shoot it left handed, right way to hold it and all that. When I use a paintball gun I shoot right handed, so this was the first time ever trying to shoot left handed. The things I wanted to shoot were 5.5 x 6 inches I attached 2 of them to the target sheet and put it at 15 feet away. I had 12 of them to shoot. At 15 feet shooting left handed for the first time I was able to shoot each one 2-3 times and the grouping was no more than 3 inches apart for the holes. After I shot my little targets I moved the big target that was 18 x 24 at least, to 30 feet and finished off the bullets I bought. At 30 feet the grouping was tight as well no more than 5-6 inches and I was not sighting my shots hardly.

The AR clip held 20 bullets. There is no practical application to an AR15, it's very easy to shoot, accurate and hardly any recoil. It really is scary that so many of these are out there and easy for people to get.

Also want to thank Emek for the idea of using money for a medium and of course Saber for his inspiration with his flag pieces.
