I couldn't be more happy with the images I've recently received of work from our next SF show. It's the movie poster show where each artist was given a poster to use as their canvas (the sister show to "Cover Band" last year in LA). And I was freaking out a little, so to say I'm pleasantly surprised is an understatement. And, it's not that I didn't have faith in the artists, it's because we gave them a pretty crazy project to work on, so we didn't really know what the outcome would be. First off, the posters are HUGE, each approx. 27 x 40 inches, and then they're thin, glossy paper stock, so the medium itself is a challenge to work with. And then lastly, we got to choose which poster went to each artist, so it was a total surprise when they arrived in the mail. So, we gave these artists quite a challenge, but definitely a fun one!
I was getting a bit nervous because we sent out the posters a while ago and I wasn't hearing anything from any of the artists until a few days ago! But finally, we started to get some of the finished pics back and they are AMAZING!! The whole point of the show is to collaborate with the existing poster image, so here are a few for you to see...

I love these shows because everyone takes a different approach and it's really fun to see what everyone did. We also started a blog specifically for this show, where the artists can post progress pics and talk about their pieces. You can also see the entire show lineup, so definitely check it out... http://1988movieposters.blogspot.com/
Stay tuned cause this is going to be a really fun show! It opens on September 18th at G1988 San Francisco!
