  • Regular Edition (Green): 40/$30.00
  • Variant Edition (Purple): 15/$35.00
  • Paper: Regular Mr. French Tile Green/Variant Mr. French Whitewash
  • Printed By: Fug Screen Studios

Here is what Chris had to say about “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde”

To me, “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” is a film that perfectly plays on the notion that any fairly normal person at any point has the potential to become a monster under the right circumstances. The eyes are a dead giveaway when first spotting that transition, so I really wanted to focus on depicting the actual transformation inside the eye itself, which was weird, different, and a whole lot of fun. It’s always a challenge to put a unique look on a classic, so I hope you all enjoy it.

Reefer Madness by Timothy Pittides

Reefer Madness by Timothy Pittides

  • “Reefer Madness”
  • Artist: Timothy Pittides
  • Size: 18×24
  • Regular Edition: 60/$35.00
  • Paper: French Packing Chip Kraft-Tone
  • Printed By: VG Kids

Here is what Tim had to say about “Reefer Madness”

Reefer Madness” needs no introduction. The American propaganda film that follows the exploits of teens in the 30’s being peer pressured into trying “The Devils Weed” aka Marijuana and what follows is lunacy, depravity and insanity all caused by marijuana addiction. Ridiculous and often hilarious, this film needed some more poster love. I decided to veer away from the propaganda type feel as well as the cartoon like approach. The film itself was INTENDED to be serious and to scare viewers into believing these awful events were caused by pot. So I decided to go that route, giving it a film noir feel with an art nouveau flare. A young woman, pressured into trying some marijuana and being tempted by the devil with a yellow rose. The inclusion of the flowers within the piece adds a bit of depth and symbolism as well. The yellow rose symbolizes friendship and joy, while the white flower in her hair, represents her innocence and purity. By “taking” the devil’s flower she is accepting him into her making her his to control. I truly hope you all enjoy this print and thank you to Jared and Mike at Grey Matter for embracing the idea and running with it.
