Famp Art has been quiet this year as they have been realigning themselves but now they are back at it with an officially licensed print for “Trollhunter” and an all-new game plan for their company. Here is what they had to say about their new endeavors.
One of our goals when we started the business was to help introduce amazing new artists to this scene and give them an opportunity to tackle a licensed property. Regardless if they’re popular or not, we wanted to help them find ways to reach a new audience, in addition to having a supportive outlet where they could sell their art, art based on both original ideas and some pop culture ones.
We will be representing a handful of very select artists, either very regularly or exclusively, to promote them as well as release and promote their art. Soon you’ll see two new sections on our website called Artists and The Gallery. The first will show a list of the artists that we will be working with regularly or that we’ll be exclusively representing. Artists will be added once we’ve introduced them via our newsletter, blog, etc. The Gallery section will be for other passion projects of ours that generally won’t be pop culture related. We have two major series in the works that we’re super excited about and news on each will be revealed in time.
Trollhunter poster by Gabriel Picolo.

Hand numbered. Timed-Edition.
Printed by Diamond Hill Screen Printing
The first artist to join their ranks is Brazilian, Gabriel Picolo. Here is what Gabriel had to say about his first screen print release. “Working on the Trollhunter poster project was a unique experience for me. That’s because, until now, it was the first time I watched a movie thinking about the illustration I’d draw afterwards. It changes how you see the whole thing. As I watched the movie I was seeking for interesting visual features that could help me to create the poster. I would like to thank Alex and FAMP Art for inviting me to join this project!”
This is a timed release so if you want one, simply click the link above before May 24th. You can follow FAMP ART on their OFFICIAL WEBSITE, TWITTER, and FACEBOOK to stay up to date on new releases and new artists being added to their roster.
To learn more about Gabriel Picolo you can check out his FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, and TUMBLR pages. One thing to be on the lookout for is that Gabriel always hides a “black kitty” in every image he does. Can you find the one in TROLLHUNTER?
