Long have we pined for a great screen print inspired by Robert Rodriguez’s adaptation of Frank Miller’s noir comic series Sin City, and now Australian artist and designer Florey has delivered this fantastic triptych.
Based on the three stories that make up the Sin City movie, The Hard Goodbye, That Yellow Bastard and The Big Fat Kill, each 5 colour screen print measures in at 18 x 24, a perfect size for framing.
The Big Fat Kill
Florey has used striking colour schemes and imagery to clearly differentiate each print which makes up a fantastic set and fits in nicely with the tone, themes and palette of Miller’s original black and white comic series as well as the movie.
These prints are now available to pre order from Florey’s online store until the 25th of May. These pieces will NEVER be reprinted and the run size will be determined by the amount of orders placed.
