Yesterday saw the trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron burst online and as a result, the interweb starting screaming in excitement. Age Of Ultron certainly looks like an exciting movie and superhero fans were salivating at teases of the ‘Hulkbuster’ Iron Man armour as well as plenty of conflict between Captain America, Thor the rest of the team. Viewers were even treated to glimpses at new characters to the Marvel cinematic world, Quiksilver and Scarlet Witch as well as the reassurance that Nick Fury was still around to support. Noticeably absent was The Vision, Paul Bettany’s step up from voicing Tony Stark’s household security system to full on Avenger status seems to be under lock and key at the moment..
In honour of the darker, sinister tone of the movie, British artist Doaly has cooked up this rather tasty Avengers: Age Of Ultron poster, just for a bit of fun. Take a look!
Doaly’s poster playfully riffs on the song hauntingly crooned by James Spader’s menacing Ultron throughout the trailer and features the villain standing atop a broken and beaten Avengers.
Matt Ferguson is a highly productive and highly talented fella. Just for fun, today Matt put together this great little piece, “I Want YOU For The Furies”.
We wanted to share this piece for one simple reason, it really showcases how great Matt is at illustrating faces and likenesses. We have known for a while that Matt had a knack of putting together clever designs with stunning textures and details but for us, this really breaks new ground in terms of his talent.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look!
When I was young, there were very few films that my parents wouldn’t allow me to watch. In fact, the only film I remember specifically not being allowed to watch was Pulp Fiction. At the time I was distraught, with hindsight it was just good parenting. Even at the age of 10 I had still developed a keen interest in films and something about the marketing for the movie just grabbed me!
With Pulp Fiction reaching the grand old age of 20 this year, it is deservedly getting some artistic attention. One of our favourites so far is this great poster by Doaly! Read on for the full reveal!
Long have we pined for a return to movie posters that were created by the hands of artists rather than marketers with photoshop skills. Skuzzles have helped nudge that process along by teaming up with MGM/ Fox on a series of 13 Blu-ray and DVD re-issues featuring artist rendered covers by some of our favourite artists!
It’s fair to say that Orlando Arocena is a master of vector posters. After being introduced to his work through Blurppy and their Poster Posse Captain America: The Winter Soldier project, which you can see Part One and Part Two of, if you follow the links. Orlando continues to push the limits of vector images printed on foil to produce posters with amazing impact and style.
Orlando Arocena is now back with a brand new take on an official poster he produced last year for Under The Floorboards. Orlando has produced an exceedingly small run of “Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.” on metallic foil, and they look extraordinary! Read on to see!
This Friday Bottleneck Gallery will be opening up a gallery with one of the most exciting and original concepts I have ever see. And there have been a few. On Friday, August, 29th, Bottleneck Gallery will open James White (Signalnoise)’s solo exhibition, ‘Celscapes’.
A celebration of classic painted backgrounds that we were so used to seeing in t.v shows, for ‘Celscapes’ James White will take on both modern and classic film, t.v and cartoons. We are lucky enough to share a few pieces from the show. Read one for some truly beautiful preview pieces from the show!
William Lustig may not be a household name like say, Steven Spielberg, but cult cinema fans will certainly be aware of his work on movies such as Maniac, Maniac Cop 1, 2, 3, Vendetta and Hit List. For a recent director’s screenings at the esteemed Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Spoke Art worked with horror fan and artist extraordinaire, Ghoulish Gary Pullin, on a stunning new limited edition print titled “The Madness of William Lustig”. The poster was created exclusively for the event and Lustig loved Gary’s take on his films. Take a look below and see how you can get hold of one!
I love customised things. I love the creativity behind the whole thing. The fact an artist (or group of artists) can look at a previously existing object and add their own, unique spin onto it, I find fantastic. With the success of companies like Kid Robot and their Dunny and Munny blank figure templates, it has never been easier for novices like myself to have a bash at what the professional artists do for fun and for a living. I don’t have a bash mind, because I am utterly useless at that kind of thing, but if I wanted to the option is always there! Anyway the main point of this is that it has given some nice exposure to this certain style of artwork, which in turn has brought me to the attention of the Red Central group.
Featuring among their ranks two artists who we really dig, Dan Shearn and Chad Woodward, Red Central in their own words are a bunch of Geeks. And fair play to them. In a world where the Guardians of the Galaxy movie can pick up a boat load of cash in the cinema, it’s a great time to embrace your geekiness and be proud of it.
To ring you up to speed, Art V Cancer, run by Chris Thornley (aka Raid71) & Julia Hall, is a fantastic cause. When you buy a poster from Art V Cancer, they promise to donate a large proportion of the profits which equates to at least £10/$15 per print to Cancer Charities. Only a small amount will be used to cover costs of running/developing Art V Cancer. Personally affected by Cancer, Julia and Raid do a fantastic job for a truly worthy cause.
Over the past couple of years Art V Cancer have been working with Joshua Budich on an extremely popular Star Wars print series. This Friday they bring that series to a close with the final piece, inspired by Return of the Jedi and titled “Like My Father Before Me”. Xombie Dirge had the official reveal today.
