Eric Church Toronto Posters

We don’t often dip our toes into the country music world but when we do it’s always a fun ride. This was the case for a recent set of posters we created for Eric Church’s two-night stop in Toronto, Canada as part of his Double-Down Tour. We decided to run with the gambling theme and create a set of classic casino slot machines, but with lots of Eric and Canada specific references thrown in. 

Each poster is a 12” x 24” four color screen print on French Kraft-Tone Manilla Yellow 100lb cover stock. Each poster has a super limited artist edition of 50 pieces. Check out our initial sketch below along with closeup photos of the finished prints and a time-lapse video documenting our design process. You can also get a look at the “Chief” poster that was available exclusively at the show. The Eric Church Toronto posters go on sale on Tuesday, March 12, at 10am PST in the DKNG Store

Back to the Future Poster and Variant

We’ve always been big fans of the Back to the Future franchise and hoped to someday have the opportunity to illustrate the iconic DeLorean from the film. Thanks to Mondo, that dream came true in the form of both vinyl packaging and now two ultra large 36” x 24" limited edition screen prints. 

The art itself is inspired in many ways by the depictions of the DeLorean that came before it. We knew that a profile view of the car has been interpreted by countless artists in many beautiful ways, so our goal was to create a new take on this viewpoint by zeroing in on the detail of the time machine, both exterior and interior through the open gull-wing doors, all while having fun with including a few easter eggs. Creating the main edition of the poster in a neon 80’s color palette was a must, but just in case it wasn’t colorful enough, we created the variant edition on rainbow foil for an extra shimmery effect.

Each posters is a 36” x 24” four color screen print. The main artist edition of 60 prints is signed and numbered by DKNG on 100 lb. white cover stock. The variant has a super limited edition of 35 and is printed on 10pt metallic rainbow foil. Both prints are available in the DKNG Store on Monday, January 7, at 10am PST. Limit one of each poster per customer, these prints are limited editions that will not be reprinted. Check out close up photos of the finished prints below.

Dave Matthews Band Boston, MA Poster

As Dave Matthews Band wraps up another year of touring, we were excited to take on another gig poster for the band, this time for their show in Boston, Massachusetts. We were inspired by a cold winter night on the Boston Harbor, lit by the famous Boston Light lighthouse, and we contained the whole scene in a classic camping lantern, complete with moths buzzing around the flame.  

The poster is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on Neenah Paper Patriot Blue 100 lb cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below, along with our initial concept sketch, and a video covering our design process. The Dave Matthews Band Boston, MA poster is available in a very limited artist edition of 60 prints in the DKNG Store. Due to the limited nature, the sale is restricted to only one print per customer, and once the poster sells out it will not be available in the future.

TRON: The Original Classic Poster

We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Galerie F and the Logan Theatre in Chicago to create a limited edition screen printed poster for the cult classic TRON. The iconic light cycles from the film immediately came to mind as the focal point for the design. The poster captures the moment that the player enters the grid and the light cycle materializes around them.

The poster is a three color screen print on Cougar White paper. Check out a few closeup photos of the finished print below as well as our original concept sketch and a process video. TRON will be released in the DKNG store on Monday, January 19, at a random time.

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds Oakland Poster

This weekend, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds performed at the historic Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California. We were inspired by the incredible mosaic facade of the theatre and created an illustrated version of the building with Dave and Tim standing in for the larger than life figures that tower above Broadway in Oakland.

The poster is a two color screen print on Autumn Hay Metallic paper. Check out a few closeup photos of the finished print below as well as our original concept sketch. The Dave and Tim Oakland poster will be released in the DKNG store on Monday, January 19, at a random time.

The Dark Knight Tumbler Poster

2014 marked the 75th Anniversary of Batman, and we were thrilled to create an official poster for Mondo and DC Comics to commemorate a more recent addition to the Batman universe: the Tumbler. Despite its military appearance, the new incarnation of the Batmobile actually has its roots in the 1950s television version of the Batmobile, according to Christopher Nolan and production designer Nathan Crowley. The two vehicles share similar features including tail fins and a rear jet engine. The Tumbler in the print is at home in the Dark Knight’s ultra-modern Batcave.

The Tumbler is a 24” x 18” two color screen print on French Speckletone Madero Beach paper and is available in a super limited artist edition of 50 posters. Check out a few closeup images of the finished print below as well as our initial concept sketch. The Tumbler will be available in the DKNG store on Monday, January 12, 2015 at a random time.

Home Alone Mondo Poster

We’re excited to announce a new movie poster for one of our favorite childhood movie’s, Home Alone. When approaching a concept for Home Alone, we knew the interior of the McCallister home and all of Kevin’s tricks to foil the Wet Bandits were likely to be the focus of our design. However, we also wanted to incorporate the exterior of the house and provide a different perspective on some of the movie’s most iconic scenes. We took some liberties with the architecture of the house and the layout of the property, but in the end the exterior allowed us to include some of our favorite imagery from Home Alone including the Oh-Kay Plumbing van, the perpetually knocked over bronze statue, and of course, Old Man Marley.

This poster was an interesting challenge for us as we’ve typically been using two-color printing for this more realistic style. This time around, we stepped up to a four-color design that looks great with the fine halftones we’re using. The poster is printed on a subtle metallic paper that will give the snow an extra shimmer. Check out a few closeup images of the poster below as well as a process video and our original sketch. Home Alone will be available in the DKNG store Monday, January 5, 2014 at a random time.
