Back in October, Blurppy pulled together its superbly talented and eclectic group of artists, the ‘Poster Posse’ to create 28 different pieces of art for Universal’s epic supernatural samurai film, 47 Ronin, directed Carl Rinch and starring Keanu Reeves.
To take a look at those pieces of work, head on over to Blurppy’s site where you can see both PHASE 1 and PHASE 2.
Ahead of the movies opening theaterically on Christmas Day 12/25. Blurppy have just exclusively announced that they will be making Cult Collective favourite, Matt Ferguson’s 47 Ronin piece available to purchase at 411posters.
Fully approved by Universal Studios, Matt’s 47 Ronin poster is a 4 colour screenprint with luscious metallic inks, limited to 75 copies and it will go on sale today, Monday the 23rd of December at a random time on 411posters online store.
Done right, alternative movie posters can be fantastic works of art. Done wrong, they look like minimalist Olly Moss rip offs. Thankfully Print Club London’s Soho House commissioned series is the former.
Print Club London are currently curating a selection of illustrations and print 12 alternative film posters commissioned by Soho House for their Electric Cinema venue in Notting Hill. Artists Hattie Stewart, HelloVon, Anthony Burrill and Ed Wood have created unique works inspired by World War Z, Lincoln, The Great Gatsby, Gangster Squad, Rush, Anchorman 2, and a few more.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Hattie Stewart, edition of 100, £60
Print Club London state on their website that “The poster series was inspired by Soho House designer Ed Wood’s weekly illustrated posters for the Electric Cinema, which soon developed a fan-base of people wishing to buy and take home his designs.”
Head on over to the Print Club London website to have a look at the full series.
One of the reasons Cult Collective was set up was with the purpose of showcasing some of the best independent and fan made art from around the web. Artists and designers create alternative posters for many reasons, from simply showing their affection for the source material to building up a portfolio showing off their skills.
This week we wanted to share two pieces created by Lindsay Silveira who, over on her Flickr site, has posted two new pieces dedicated to Batman vs. Superman.
Both pieces are very different in style and display great versatility. You can follow Lindsay over on Twitter, too!
