Godmachine Icon of Sin Doom Print & Jonathan Wayshak Doom Print World Premier Exclusive

Godmachine Icon of Sin Doom Print

Jonathan Wayshak Doom

One of the first video games I played on a computer was DOOM. After wielding the BFG I was hooked, played everyone after that and then Quake.  Bethesda and ID Software set the bar for first person shooter games and now they once again breaking new ground with prints based on their popular video games.

If you follow Godmachine you know that he teased the news recently about a DOOM print. Well here it is the exclusive reveal of Icon of Sin. This will be a screenprint with an edition of 333 measuring 18 x 24 inches.

I have another exclusive reveal as well, this one by Jonathan Wayshak who has done comic book work along with having his art in various gallery shows across the country including Gallery1988. His DOOM print will be a giclee print with an edition of 333 measuring 18 x 24 inches.

Well when can I get these badass prints you ask ? Thursday at Quakcon in Dallas. QuakeCon is a free convention held annually in the Dallas, TX area. Thousands of computer gamers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to play with their friends on a giant gaming network, see the latest cool technology, and compete in world-class tournaments. The 20th anniversary of DOOM is this year, so Treehouse Brands wanted to make a splash and try to do something fun, art-wise, plus it's their first year at Quakecon. They will have 50 of each print to sell at their booth which is #404

You may be asking who is Treehouse Brands, they run the official stores for a number of different big video game properties. They worked with Galley1988 on the American McGees Alice art show back in 2011 and last fall had a series of prints based on the Tomb Raider game as well.

Now for those of us not at QuakeCon they will have online sales of both these prints on Friday August 16 in the Bethesda Store HERE. Yes they do know how to ship prints I asked, they'll be shipped from their office by a video-game-obsessed collector-type they hired expressly to care about thier art shipments, rolled carefully in heavy duty kraft mailing tubes (the extra-sturdy 4inch U-Line ones).
