Titan Books: “The Art Of Watch Dogs” Made Us Want To Buy The Game!

artofwatchdogsThis year, Ubisoft Montreal released an all new, open world action-adventure video game called “Watch Dogs.”  The story revolves around hacker, Aiden Pearce, (AKA ‘The Fox“)  as he wanders the streets of Chicago utilizing his smartphone to access security cameras, bank accounts, and public transportation to seek revenge after the accidental death of his beloved niece.

Titan Books has partnered with Ubisoft to release a gorgeous new book called, “The Art of Watch Dogs.”  Here is what they have to say about the book.  ‘The Art of Watch Dogs’ is the definitive gallery of the world of Aiden Pearce.  Sketches, concept art, and behind the scenes commentary from the artists bring to life a vision of Chicago controlled by cTOS and inhabited by hackers, criminals and underground gangs.

Watch Dogs’ Chicago is realized in astonishingly gritty detail.  Explore the city from the rich and opulent  Mad Mile to the dangerous streets of The Wards and the junkyards of Pawnee.  But the cTOS network is not the only thing Aiden has to watch our for, all the way from the notorious hacker ‘Default’ to the upper echelons of the local government, nobody in Watch Dogs are what they seem.

From the ashes of Death of Wolverine comes a new beginning.

Written by superstar writer Charles Soule with art by Oliver Nome, this epic first issue, setting the stage for a world without Wolverine!

“Think of the death of Wolverine as an inciting event, one thing that has seismic-level effects on the lives of a great deal of the Marvel Universe,” says Charles Soule in an interview with Marvel.com. “We’ll start in Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy by examining those effects on people close to Wolverine, but over time, we’ll range far and wide to see what sort of black hole Logan’s death actually leaves.”

Death_of_Wolverine_The_Logan_Legacy_1_Preview_2With the mutant powerhouse now out of the picture, who or what will be left to pick up the pieces? Will Wolverine’s legacy be shaped by heroes who valiantly fought alongside him…or by the villains who he spent his whole life protecting the world against? The answers will be revealed this October when the Marvel Universe faces a world without Wolverine in DEATH OF WOLVERINE: THE LOGAN LEGACY #1!

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
