Jack Hankins aka Horrorwood just released a paper toy tribute for his friend, and all around supporter of the art scene, Ryan August! Ryan, known for his awesome 'I Want Your Skull' site and magazine, was taken from us last July in a tragic accident. To honor Ryan, Jack made 2 jumbo versions of the Skull King toy that he worked on with Ryan before he passed away. They are available for free download but in return Jack is asking for donations to Ryan's family. Head on over HERE, grab a sweet download, and donate for a truly worthy cause!

Neil Gaiman’s poem "100 Words" reflects on the inevitable passing through the veils...
A hundred words to talk of death?
At once too much and not enough.
My plans beyond that final breath
are currently a little rough.
The dying thing comes on so slow:
reluctance to get out of bed
is magnified each day and so
transmuted into dead.
I dream of dying all alone,
nobody there to watch me pass
nothing remains for me to own,
no breath remains to fog the glass.
And when I do put down my pen
my memories will fly like birds.
When I am done, when I am dead,
and finished with my hundred words.
Earlier this year, the CBLDF and NeverWear approached Jim Lee about illustrating Neil's poem. Jim's attention to detail is riveting, from the tiny etched bottles on the shelves to the faint hint of a skull hiding under a beautiful face.
Five dollars from each print will benefit the CBLDF, their steadfast friends in the east who are there in the light and in the darkness, fighting for our civil rights.
Featuring ever-precise lettering by Todd Klein, who brought Neil's words so vividly to life in Sandman.
This piece measures 10" x 28" printed in soy ink on heavy 100% recycled archival stock, with a 1" & 2" white border around the art for breathing room. The flecks in the paper are indicative of the recycled nature. I think it adds to the beauty. This is a limited print edition with a numbered run of 750.

Jon from Novos Films sent me an email to let you know about some new prints produced for the film. He found some really cool metallic stocks while printing “The Forest Made Us Talk”, and decided to divert 50 prints from the original run to two variants, each with editions of 25. Both are 97# Curious Metallic Cover stocks; one is called “Iced Gold” and has a cool color shifting effect in the light, and the other is called “Galvanized” and is a great silver metallic. The prints will be given away to those who donate $75 to the film. Donors can get both the original print and a variant at $100, or all three at $150. I've been struggling to produce pictures that accurately capture how cool these prints are, but I've attached the best ones. Like before, donations can be made through the paypal link on the film's website:

This is the second to last Star Wars poster to be released. King's Lead Hat by Rob Jones. 24"x36" screen print w/ metallic inks. Signed and numbered by the artist. Edition of 255.
Here is what Rob had to say about the poster:
"There's a scene in Star Wars where Grand Moff Tarkin strides into his council room on the Death Star announcing the dissolution of the Imperial Senate. His officers express concern over the Emperor's ability to maintain control of star systems without this governing body. To this Tarkin retorts, 'Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station.'
This exchange made me consider the motivation behind the Emperor's construction of Darth Vader. I'm not referring to just the cybernetic bits maintaining Vader's body but also the active manipulation of his mind to bring him to the dark side. The Emperor created in Vader a weapon no different from the Death Star in its ultimate purpose, a means of generating fear amongst the vast populace he ruled. An administrative tool that became the executor of the Emperor's cruel commands. With that in mind, I decided to depict Vader as a facility harnessing and directing his immense natural power towards malicious ends."
This poster will go on sale at a random time today, 12/28/2010 at www.MondoTees.com

First up is a tasy new one for Gene Ween's solo acoustic set at the Black Cat in Washington D.C. The theme was the touring musician.. enough time for a few smokes and a few cups of coffee, no time for actual food.
Edition of 65 prints, 25 x 19 - 4 colors on French Bright White. Those available at the show sold out but T-Bone has a handful left for $30 each. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
I love that Gene Ween poster.
Next is the Disco Biscuits two night new years show at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby PA. The band wanted something that was the line art style of their Chromeo and She wants Revenge posters, also with the theme of 1930's depression era mixed with a Boardwalk Empire look. These will be for sale both nights at the Tower, and then after the show from T-Bone & Aljax.
This release just might break the internetz today. Olly Moss takes on all 3 of the original Star Wars movies.
The new posters show colorful silhouettes of C-3PO, Darth Vader and Boba Fett that are filled in with detailed imagery from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. To create original artwork for such rabidly adored films was daunting, Moss said, especially since so many of the visuals are already iconic.
"It was so intimidating!" the artist told Wired.com in an e-mail interview. "There is such a wealth of great Star Wars art out there already, from paid professionals and from enthusiastic fans. I suppose my main aim was to make a set of Star Wars posters that were a little different from what people are used to seeing from the franchise, but still retained that essential Star Wars feel. I started by re-watching the original movies with a sketchbook on my lap, and just sort of went from there."
Still, there was no backing away from the challenge. "If you're as big a nerd as I am, you just can't say no to Star Wars," Moss said.
Each of the posters are 24 x 36 inches with an edition of 400 and will be sold separately. With only two more posters to be released in the Star Wars series it will be an epic ending to the series.
Olly will be selling a limited amount on Weds Dec 23. Stay tuned for details
On sale today at a random time at MondoTees.com and if you do try to get them, may the Force be with you.
