Oslo Artist Oli Riches’ First Print Is Absolutely, Unequivocally, Emphatically… Super

Screen Shot 2013-07-04 at 7.57.02 AMOne of the great things about BLURPPY and The Poster Posse is that I constantly get approached by new and upcoming artists.  Such was the case with Oli Riches who has just released his very first print and I think it is outstanding. Oli is English but works in   Norway as a designer and illustrator for a graphic design agency. He describes himself on his TWITTER page as Designer/ Illustrator/ Writer/ Drone Repairman.  Not a bad arsenal…pretty diverse… He is a huge movie fan and has been drawing ever since he was at primary school, starting out with the teenage mutant ninja turtles.

As soon as I saw the print I immediately reached out to him and here is what he had to say.

To be honest, I didn’t really expect any attention from the poster so it´s taken me a bit by surprise. It is my first movie poster and so I also didn’t even think of selling it (at least yet). My plan before setting out on the Man of Steel poster was to make several posters for upcoming movies and build my new website portfolio and shop and bring it altogether. This idea for Man of Steel I had around January but I didn’t actually start it until May. Now I’ve made the first one I’ve really got a taste for it!

For his first print he tackled Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel and honestly, I think he perfectly captured the essence of a young Clark from the movie.  “It’s all about the journey Clark had to take to becoming the hero of the planet,” Oli stated.  The print comes in two versions, a purple edition which you can see above and a cream variant which is below.

Currently you can follow Oli on TWITTER, FACEBOOK or check out his TUMBLR page but as I stated, this is his very first print, it’s the only thing there!  I can’t wait to see what he does next and mark my words, if he keeps turning out quality stuff like THIS, he will “accomplish wonders”…  Wait… those aren’t MY words…. never mind, they totally apply and fit perfectly, I’m leaving them.

Be sure to check out the detail in the cloud work.  Oli included an image of an older Clark that the unsuspecting eye may miss.  Let us know what YOU think of the print in the comments section below.
