Orlando Arocena Says “Thank You” In A Very Special Way To Blurppy And Several Other Sites

We go on vacation for a few short days over the holiday break and BAM! we miss out on an amazing story!  (That’s the LAST time we completely disconnect from all social media/ internet!)  The other day, vector artist and Poster Posse member, Orlando Arocena launched a unique tribute to the sites that showed him love over 2014.  In the span of 5 days, he managed to create 9 insane images, specifically designed to pay homage to the sites that he felt gave him continuous coverage throughout 2014.

Here is what Orlando had to say about the project over on his official BEHANCE PAGE.  We’ve included all the amazing images he churned out but definitely head over to his Behance Page to check out the W.I.P.s for each print.

2014 was an INCREDIBLE year for me!  I took a year off from my Vector Fine Art, and took a risk to explore the cinema pop-culture scene.  Pushed myself creatively as far as I thought I could go, but found myself going further than expected , greatly due to YOUR SUPPORT, and the support of many online Pop-culture/ Geek blogs and on-line destinations.  I made MANY friends.

Here’s my vector way of saying “Thank You”, with a creative vector parody tribute- some associated with the silver screen, others a more personal interpretation.  Please forgive me if you don’t see your page represented- there’s only so much I can do in just 5 days… Either way, YOU ALL ROCK!!!!! and the appreciation and support has always been mutual.

Cheers & I hope you all have a great & productive 2015!

One of the things that really appeals to us, other than the sensational image he created for us, is that he says “thank you” to sites and blogs of all sizes and popularity.  It’s refreshing to see this approach and shows that he is in touch with just who is covering and sharing his brand of “awesome.”

We hate to let you know that these prints are not available for purchase.  Orlando is printing out ONE of each and sending it to each site as a personal thank you.
