Odd City Entertainment Announces Their Last Licensed Print For Pacific Rim And It’s A Doozy!

Odd City Entertainment has done some impressive work with their licensed, limited edition Pacific Rim series for Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Gabz, N.E. and James Fosdike all turned in stellar work and today O.C.E. are announcing the last piece of that puzzle.  This time up, Autsin, Texas artist Todd Slater releases a print that is pretty dang special and features Gipsy Danger holding Raleigh and Mako in its hands.  But wait…what is that lurking behind them!

Roman Morales, Odd City CEO, summed up this series of art, “When we picked up the license for Pacific Rim, we were so excited to be working with Guillermo del Toro and his team. We knew that we had to deliver something very special. The decision was made very early that we would do a series of prints but, we didn’t want them all to be the same. So, we set out to curate a series of different styles, themes and artists to show the complex nature this film embodies. Gabz brilliantly evoked WW-II style propoganda posters with his print, James Fosdike’s art tapped into the emotion and awe of the film, N.E. explored the concept of mind-melding in detailed metallic ink, Graham Erwin appealed to our own childhood fascination through his illustrations of monsters and machines and, with a beautiful foil variant, Todd Slater emphasized the enormity of the Kaiju threat and the Jaegers built to defend the human race.”

Todd Slater, the artist commissioned by Odd City to close their series, gave insight into his inspiration for this project, “When I first began seeing the early images for Pacific Rim, I was immediately struck by the scale of the Jaegers versus the humans. These pictures served as a reminder of how fragile human life is and I decided to create my image around this thought. I wanted to depict these giant machines as the protectors of humanity from the mysterious beasts that have emerged from a portal beneath the ocean.”
