Skuzzles are extremely excited to announce their officially licensed limited edition screen print movie poster for Sergio Leone's epic western film The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo) that stars Clint Eastwood. The guys at Skuzzles are huge fans of western films and always wanted to add one to their roster of limited edition screen print movie posters. They created a small list of westerns that they would love to pay tribute and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly was #1 on the list. When Skuzzles finalized the license for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly it was a no brainer that JC Richard would absolutely knock this title out of the park--no doubt he did.
Here's a little bit about The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Screen Print, straight from JC Richard:
"What to say about this one? Simply one of the best films of all time, and a personal favorite. Soon after I began concept work on this one (and with "Ecstasy of Gold" playing in a loop in my head), I knew I had to head to Sad Hill Cemetery.
Re-visiting the Sad Hill scenes over and over, I was constantly reminded of Leone's version to conventional framing... I recalled reading how he looked to great masters such as Goya and Degas as visual inspiration, stating he viewed Degas "as if he was a great film director.” Apparently he composed many shots using Degas’ loose layout approach-- he avoided centering actors within the frame and often kept a single figure close to the lens, where they would be be visually imposing yet largely cut off and compromised by the frame border. I wanted to emulate that approach for the poster-- Blondie set in extreme foreground in well-known gunslinger pose, visually and symbolically splitting/ connecting the other two figures in the arena..
For the variant, the most obvious change is the title language. A nice fade sunset replaces the blue sky, and the poncho switches from dark green to red(dish)--not only to reflect the change in overall lighting but also to mirror the fact that the garment seems to appear different colors depending on which print or promo still you happen to stumble upon..."
