GET OUT by Francesco Francavilla
24"x36" Screen Print, Edition of 250
Printed by D&L Screenprinting  - $50     

From the trailers I knew GET OUT was a movie that I had to go see as soon it was in the theaters. And I did, on its opening weekend. The movie was so good that I couldn’t think of anything else once back home. As I do for everything that I really, REALLY like, I decided to do a quick poster art for it, and went with a minimalist approach, trying to not spoil the movie for those who hadn’t seen it yet. I posted the art with my 2 thumbs up review on twitter and had director/writer Jordan Peele himself replying to the post and saying how much he loved the concept. Someone else suggested to turn this in a Mondo poster (given my relation with Mondo) and Peele said he was totally up for it. Of course Mondo was happy too cause they loved the movie as much as I did. So yeah, now you have this poster because of the movie being so good and the magic of social media that makes the world way smaller than it really is :)

These posters will be available at a random time today (5/23) on mondotees.com - follow @MondoNews feed on Twitter for the drop announcement.

Cheers,

MONDO’s press release:
Jordan Peele’s GET OUT is an absolute gut punch of a film. Not only is it one of the best and most important movies to come out so far in 2017, we’d rank it among the top movies of the last several years. The film tells the story of an interracial couple, Chris and Rose, as they travel to Rose’s family estate to spend a weekend with her parents. Things get increasingly dark as the visit goes on and more sinister discoveries come to light about her family’s past.

We’re beyond excited to have two incredible posters available for the film by Francesco Francavilla and Jay Shaw, each rife with rich subtext, themes and imagery, available tomorrow in celebration of the home video release. Francesco’s poster features Chris trapped in the vast expanse of the sunken place, while Jay takes a visceral approach in illustrating themes touched upon in the film.

The fact that GET OUT was Jordan Peele’s directorial debut is all the more impressive and we absolutely cannot wait to see what other stories he has to share with the world. GET OUT is available on Blu-Ray/home video tomorrow and we highly recommend picking it up and watching it immediately.

The Fabric Merchant’s Son is a 7 layer silkscreen print that ended me. Please zoom in for details. The children’s book (that I’ll finish over the summer) is about a boy (Purl), his mother, and two goats as they travel through the mountains. 

Silkscreen is a very labor intensive process involving calluses and arm workouts! This took 15 hours of manual labor (after the initial 13 hours of drawing). Below the cut for original digital piece

new heart screen prints from sketch to first run…

recreating the sketch with drawing fluid on the screen

filling in the brown blocking fluid after blue drawing fluid has dried

first print –i thought a purple-ish gray would be good color, tried that and red in solid runs but…

wanted something more interesting so did a sort of experimental ‘fountain’ print pulling two colors thru at once

now i might create another screen to print on top of this one or hand draw on them, we’ll see…

DC Hero Profiles: The Series

This is the full DC Hero Profiles series thus far. There are a ton of characters I still want to include… Doctor Fate, Robin, Batgirl, Blue Devil, the Atom, etc. I love the #DCU and have really enjoyed building this series! If you have a character suggestion, I’d love to hear from you.
