Check out this sweet poster from Colorado’s Lastleaf Printing! Rosemary’s Baby never looked so Satanic as in this print! Oh…and I managed to snag one, which makes this year’s Halloween complete!
The good folks at Grey Matter Art will soon be releasing a print based on the Dustin Hoffman movie, “The Graduate”. The poster is illustrated by none other than the outstanding Matt Taylor! We might have to go into plastics so we can afford to buy them all!
Here’s what Grey Matter Art co-founder, Mike Gregory, has to say about this print:
“When we had the opportunity to do “The Graduate”, we jumped at the chance to be able to be the first to release it. We thought it out for a while on who would be the perfect choice to take on this project. This isn’t a film that just anyone would be right for, and it really had to be done the right way for the idea to get across. As soon as we thought of artist Matt Taylor, it just seemed to click, and we couldn’t see anyone else give it as much justice as he would. Matt has that great style where he can really portray a feeling or mood of an image, and for this poster, he did just that. You can see the conflicted emotion on Dustin Hoffman’s character, Benjamin Braddock’s face so well. This poster has beautiful color and imagery and we are honored to be able to be the ones to match the film and artist so well on this one.”
“The Graduate” goes on sale Tuesday, October 28th on Grey Matter Art’s shop page at a random time between 1:00-2:00 PM. EST.

About a week ago I had the good fortune to sit down and chat with the very talented illustrator and designer, Tracie Ching. Tracie offered some great insight into her working process, the convention scene, comic books, and gallery shows! There are a TON of name-drops in this one! Everyone from Stan Lee to Steve McNiven, Norman Reedus and the great galleries where Tracie has exhibited her work. So, without further ado, here is A Conversation with Tracie Ching!

This morning at the office I noticed that I had a multitude of Adobe CC 2014 updates to install. I went ahead with the tedious task of updating the suite of “Apps”, and once completed, opened up Adobe Illustrator. Imagine my surprise when I saw an illustration from the King of Vectors, Orlando Arocena, greeting me on the Splash Screen of Illustrator!
Again and again, Orlando knocks it out of the park. The illustration moves the Illustrator Splash Screen into a more modern dimension, while also utilizing a color palette and subject matter that can translate well to any demographic. Great job as always, Orlando! Check our Orlando’s Behance and his Twitter for up-to-the-minute news straight from Orlando himself!
