Matt Leunig Free Friday Poster Giveaway Featuring Raising Arizona

I have seen a lot of movies, I hate to admit it but I have not seen Raising Arizona. So I have nothing to say about the movie. But when I was talking with Matt Leunig about doing a giveaway for the blog I saw this poster and I really liked it and thought your fine folks would as well.

Matt did the poster for Spoke Art's first Quentin v. Coen Bros Group Show back in 2011. The Raising Arizona poster is a 4-color screenprint, 18′ x 24′ inches.

 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 about the movie so I can learn something about it to have a chance at winning the print. 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 1 AM PDT Saturday March 9 that's almost two days to enter with the winner announced on Sunday. I extended the entry since Daylight Savings goes into effect Saturday night DON'T FORGET

Huge thank you to Matt Leunig for the providing the poster for the giveaway. Be sure to check out his website and see his new Woody Allen print he just released.


  1. Kevin Costner turned down the lead role!

    Gimme Gimme!

  2. "Boy, you got a panty on your head" - that should entice you to check it out. One of the best movies ever, and back when Nic Cage made good movies.

  3. I must have watched this 100 times and it never gets old. This print is classic and falls in line great with the film.

  4. The Coen's trademark sense of comedy is on display on this film, in that period of time where Nick Cage wasn't a complete joke. It 's a great looking film and a great example of some masters of their form hitting their stride.

  5. We released ourselves on our own recognizance.

  8. It's a great movie, kind of cheesy and low budget. But, it's a good one.

  9. Matt rulez! DC REPRESENT! My favorite piece is the the DC Brau Growler design!

  10. "huah- We got us a family here!"
    LOVE this movie- I could watch it over and over.

  11. One of my favorite movies of all time.

    Gale: All right, ya hayseeds, it's a stick-up. Everybody freeze. Everybody down on the ground.
    Feisty Hayseed: Well, which is it, young feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, if'n I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And if'n I drop, I'm a-gonna be in motion. You see...
    Gale: Shut up!
    Feisty Hayseed: Okay then.
    Gale: Everybody down on the ground!
    Evelle: Y'all can just forget that part about freezin' now.
    Gale: Better still to get down there.
    Evelle: Yeah, y'all hear that, don't ya?
    [Everybody lays down. Gale looks at the now-empty teller windows]
    Gale: Shit! Where'd all the tellers go?
    Teller's voices: We're down here, sir.
    Evelle: They're on the floor as you commanded, Gale.

    Thanks! MikeC T
