James Flames Almost Famous Movie Poster Release

This is James Flames final release of the year, and it's also one of his favorite projects from this past year.
I was approached about a year ago by the fine folks at Bottleneck Gallery in NYC, who had just acquired the license for the classic Cameron Crowe film "Almost Famous", and when they asked me if I wanted to make something special for the film, I was all in.

I wanted to include as many references to the film as possible, so the main illustration is based on the great "de-flowering scene"; but sprinkled throughout the details of the artwork are depictions of the "Golden God" scene (still one of the best ever!), the band Stillwater's song "Fever Dog", and their trusty tour bus. (You can see close up images of these details on my site).

But my favorite reference is to the scene when they're all on the bus singing "Tiny Dancer". What a great moment. And so in the illustration, William is at the edge of the bed, writing in his journal, and perched at either corner of his book are two "Tiny Dancers" -- Penny and Russell -- who are basically his guiding forces through his adventure with the band. - James
There are two versions of this screenprinted poster, a regular edition, and a special "Lava Lamp" holofoil variant. Both are very limited editions -- the original release of these posters by the Bottleneck Gallery sold out right away, and these Artist's Editions are the very last copies of this poster to ever be available.

Everything will be on sale on his website Tuesday, December 5th at 1pm Eastern www.jamesflames.com
