It has been another amazing year in the world of screen printed cult movie art work. One of the best sites out there isMondotees.com, they work with tons of artists across the globe and have created a collective dedicated to putting artistic spins on your favorite movie posters. They put together art galleries and also do a lot with the Alamo draft house which has many screenings for fans of 80’s horror and sci-fi cult flms. This is an extensive collection of all my favorite screen prints from this past 2012 year! enjoy!
So i had the pleasure of dropping in to the Crazy 4 Cult art gallery (http://nineteeneightyeight.com) this past Sunday with @the__donovan and boy were happy with the turn out! One hundred great artists from all over the country have come together to create some of the best cult movie inspired art work to date. I was stoked to see that a lot of the west coast cult art work is starting to make it’s way to the east coast. Bring it. We love it. The galleries running for about a month, so if you have a chance and are in the NYC area, make a pit stop asap, you will not be upset that you did!

It’s 3am and i find myself wired on a Saturday night channel surfing only to come across one of favorite childhood blood-fests: Robocop. This movie was one that my parents never wanted me to watch, especially because of many explicitly violent gun battles. It’s funny, in the 80’s did everyone think that Detroit and Seattle would become the most crime infested, dangerous places on earth, where the criminal underbelly ran wild and plotted to destroy the established order? Apparently. Robocop was a movie with a great blend of character development, bad ass action, and hardcore violence. It was every 15 yr old’s dream come true. A lot of artists have posted Robocop screen printed posters, so here they are for your viewing pleasure:
oh yea and here’s the most violent scene in the movie:
The past year has been a fun year of art work collecting. My friend and i even made a stop at Spoke Arts: Quentin VS Coen show in NYC a few months back. We drank White Russian’s and spent the night laughing and dropping lines from our favorite films. Here’s a few snapshots of my own personal collection of screen printed and glossy posters!
