Well, as promised, it’s 9am and here is your second dose, Phase 2, of some powerful Pacific Rim prints from a slew of today’s best artists. Yesterday’s reveal was a massive success and the feedback from fans was outstanding.
I am highly confident that we are ending this project on a high note today. Soak it in people, and remember, GO BIG OR GO EXTINCT! Pacific Rim from Warner Bros and Legendary crashes into theaters on Friday, July 12th! I will be at the IMAX screening with my Junior Mints first thing that day, what about you?

I asked Tim for a translation for his poster and this is what he had to say: “Most of it comes from the official Japanese poster. The big red letters at the bottom say “Pacific Rim” and according to a Japanese-speaking friend of mine, the yellow characters on the left translate most closely to “This giant soldier is Mankind’s last hope.” The text running vertically on the bottom right says “Anderson,” and the characters in the circle in the bottom left are just a stylized T and A, my initials. The credit block under the title is exactly as it appears on the official Japanese posters for the film. I’ve attached an image of the text on the original poster for comparison. (See below)
There you have it folks. Poster Posse Project #3 is a wrap. Now that you have seen ALL the images, which ones were your favorite? PLEASE leave a comment below and be sure to stop by these artists’ websites and tell them how much you loved their work on TWITTER. Tell them BLURPPY sent you. (Again, it won’t garner you anything special BUT it will make MY day.) HUGE thank you to all the amazing talent that showed up for this one. Your work and enthusiasm inspire me every single day. I absolutely LOVE spreading your work amongst the masses.
