BLURPPY TM

 

M2 is the brainchild of writer/director duo Adam Martin and Eben Matthews.  They have partnered with “Boondock Saints” creator, writer, director, Troy Duffy to release a fantastic set of tribute prints celebrating the 15th anniversary of the cult-classic film.  The Poster Series was conceived by M2 Creative Director and “Boondock Saints : The Comic” Series Producer, Eben Matthews as a way to artfully celebrate the film. Each print is crafted by a different artist who is invited to interpret the source material and expand the ideas and characters from the film in new artistic directions.

The newest prints in the series are by Southern California artist Brian Luong.  He favors natural and organic subject matters, often building upon what nature has to offer in order to create otherworldly and mysterious subjects for his work. Using a muted pallet, meticulous hatching, and broad fills of color, Brian creates work that has been honed and refined to best suit the silkscreen printing process. His latest prints, much like the film they represent, are pretty damn cool.  Check out both versions below.

EXCLUSIVE! Feast Your Eyes Upon Phase 2 Of The Poster Posse’s Stellar Tribute To… “Interstellar”

….see what we did there….”stellar?”  Yesterday we gave you a look at Phase 1 of our tribute to Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Sci-Fi adventure, “Interstellar.”  Fans really seemed to love all the art and today we are bringing you the final part of the project.

Interstellar-Trailer nolan

This time out we are featuring the  art of Poster Posse members: Simon Delart, Orlando Arocena, Richard Davies, Daniel Nash, Matt Needle, Benjamin Mcleod, Ben Whitesell, Andy Fairhurst, and Luke Butland.  One thing to keep in mind is that we do these projects months ahead of the movie’s release date and all we have for resources are teaser trailers and interviews from around the web.  This amazing art is conjured up from the very depths of each artist’s imagination.

INTERSTELLAR_Orlando Arocena_2014_PPOrlando Arocena – USA   Understanding that the general theme of the movie is about how the Earth’s natural resources can longer sustain life, and how the Human Race must risk it all in the exploration of a better, more sustainable world, I found inspiration by looking at cosmic charts and spiritual iconography from many cultures. I made a connection by metaphorically representing the space craft launching off Earth in a quest for life with the symbolic representation of the “Seed of Life”. – Orlando Arocena

Poster Posse Artist Doaly Asks, “What’s In The Case?” With His 20th Anniversary Tribute Piece For “Pulp Fiction”

Director, writer Quentin Tarantino’s tales of violence, drugs and revenge, blew people’s minds when “Pulp Fiction” came out in 1994.  With an all-star cast that includes John Travolta, Sam Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Rosanna Arquette, Tim Roth and Eric Stoltz, to name a few, it is still just as vibrant and entertaining today as it was 20 years ago.

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this brilliant film, Poster Posse member Doaly has crafted a fitting tribute piece that relates directly back to the movie.  Doaly’s piece is titled: “What’s In The Case?” and it’s fitting because over the years, folks have speculated all kinds of crazy theories about what it could be.

The diamonds from the robbery in ‘Reservoir Dogs’, drugs, Marsellus Wallace’s soul and many more theories have all been thrown.  Remember, the combination for the case WAS “666” does that have anything to do with it?  Well Doaly, much like Tarantino, is letting the fans decide with this new print.
