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!

Art V Cancer And Joshua Budich Raise Money And Awareness With The Last In Their ‘Star Wars’ Series: “Like My Father Before Me”

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.

Gallery 1988 Announce The Next In Their ‘Ghostbusters’ 30th Anniversay Online Releases, “They’re Here To Save The World” By Joshua Budich

Ever since Gallery 1988 announced back in January that they would be doing a Ghostbusters touring gallery celebrating the movies 30th anniversary, we have been excited to see each and every piece produced for the shows. The tour kicked off in New York on April the 19th before moving to L.A on May the 17th and opens in Chicago this Friday night at Rotofugi, 7pm while 10pm. Tomorrow Gallery 1988 continue with their series of online releases with a piece by Joshua Buddich, easily one of the best of the show.

Joshua Budich, one of the most humble and talented artists to emerge over the past couple of years, has produced this fantastic piece

“They’re Here To Save The World” By Joshua Budich

A little while ago, Joshua was kind enough to take the time to answer a few of our questions on the piece, which impressively comes with full likeness rights by each of the key actors including the sadly departed Harold Ramis.

How did you feel when Gallery 1988 asked you to work on a Ghostbusters piece?

Ghostbusters has always been one of my favorite, and most memorable movie experiences of my childhood. I remember getting the “nod” from my parents, after they had pre-screened Ghostbusters for any questionable content, too racy or frightening for my virgin eyes. Then getting to stay up late to watch it! So, when 88 asked me to participate in this show, I of course jumped at the chance.

Your artwork is applauded and loved by fans for the character likeness and composition, how do you decide what your posters should include?

I knew going into this project that obtaining likeness sign-off from any of the actors I portrayed in the print would be a challenge. So, I had to let the composition dictate who to include, and who unfortunately had to be cut. I do this little exercise every time I create a character-based piece like this. For me, the print has to tell a story. Some parts of the film, although extremely memorable, have to be taken out.

Last year was a great one for you, where would you like this year to take you with your artwork?

Thanks so much! This year, I promised myself more personal projects. Opportunities to take more time with my work, and to reinvigorate my love for the process of creating these pieces.

 

The print will be released tomorrow, Thursday the 19th of June at 9am PT/ Noon ET at Gallery 1988’s dedicated Ghostbusters 30th website and make sure you follow them on Twitter and Facebook, too!
