Matt has some new, fantastic work created for inclusion in this show, and I for one, want them all! Matt’s illustrations for The Blair Witch Project and Let The Right One In are especially great, and we love the fact that we can see Matt’s artwork just getting better and better with each print he releases.
If you haven’t seen his work on the “Interview With The Vampire” private commission, you NEED to search for it on this site and check it out!
We’re back with Illustrator and friend of I Got Birds, Robert Bruno! We thought we would catch up with Robert in the year since our last podcast, and Rob was gracious enough to come back on. You may want to turn your speakers up a bit, as we had some technical difficulty and ended up recording on an iPhone. That being said, we hope you enjoy The Return of Robert Bruno!
Illustrator, Designer and friend of I Got Birds, Tracie Ching, has produced three tribute prints for the films of Quentin Tarantino, to be shown at the upcoming “Young Guns” show at Hero Complex Gallery. Now, I don’t know about you but it appears to me that this has the potential of being some of the best work of Tracie’s career. I mean, it looks like Samuel L. Jackson wants to leap right out of that print and yell “MMMM-MMMM BITCH!!!” to me. These are really stunning prints and Tracie has returned to her blood-spatter embellishing for some prints in the series, making them true originals much like one of my favorite prints of Tracie’s, “The Yellow-Haired Warrior”.

Here’s a little of what Tracie had to say about the series…
“I was asked to participate in Hero Complex Gallery’s Young Guns Invitational, a show featuring emerging artists. Each artist was asked to submit a small body of work featuring a subject of their choosing. I decided to create portrait studies evocative of old tintype photographs for three of Quentin Tarantino’s most memorable characters – Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction, Aldo Raine from Inglourious Basterds, and Django from Django Unchained. They have been printed on French Paper’s gorgeous Steel Grey 100C and each study has a small variant run, each featuring totally unique blood splatter embellishments.”

The “Young Guns” show opens at Hero Complex Gallery on Friday, January 30, 2015 with prints to go on sale the following week.
Hero Complex Gallery introduces us to their latest show, Imagined Worlds 2. We love the artwork featured in this exhibit and thought we would showcase some of our favorites. Visit Hero Complex Gallery for more!
We here at igotbirds.com love to interview illustrators and poster artists from all over the world. Tonight, we present to you an emerging Poster illustrator, a member of Poster Posse, and an all-around good guy, Robert Bruno! This is the very first podcast from igotbirds.com, so it may be a little rough around the edges in some spots but we think it’s well worth sharing! In this interview we touch on Robert’s early days, his work with Poster Posse, exhibiting at Bottleneck Gallery and Hero Complex Gallery, and why I wasn’t too fond of the Mondo Disney art show.
