Who Watches Robert Bruno?

The big reveal has happened! Robert Bruno’s “Watchmen” print has been unveiled at WonderCon and we’re super-excited for this one! Robert’s managed to focus on all the “hits” from the movie, including Jon Osterman getting ripped apart on a molecular level, Nite-Owl and Silk Spectre making out during nuclear apocalypse and the whole team assembled for an awesome group shot.

The Return of Robert Bruno!

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!

A New Year is upon us, and with that comes the First Annual I Got Birds Top 15 Posters of 2014! We thought about making a Top 10 but then said “Screw it, we’re going bigger“! So, without further ado, here are our…

Top 15 of 2014!

15. “The Rock” by Patrick Connan

Nightbreed by Quiltface Studios

Chris Garofalo scares us half to death with his take on Dr. Decker, the infamous button-faced serial killer of Clive Barker’s “Nightbreed”!


13. “The Yellow-Haired Warrior” by Tracie Ching

Kill Bill - The Yellow Haired Warrior by Tracie Ching

Kill Bill – The Yellow Haired Warrior by Tracie Ching

What else can be said about this amazing poster from Tracie Ching? Just plain awesome, and the variety of “blood” spatters on each print make them truly one-of-a-kind!


12. “Starlord Dia De Los Muertos” by Orlando Arocena

Starlord Dia De Los Muertos by Orlando Arocena

I Got Birds Webcast with Kevin Burke.

Twenty-Four By Thirty-Six by Paul Ainsworth

Twenty-Four By Thirty-Six by Paul Ainsworth

Director Kevin Burke sat down to chat with us via webcast regarding his upcoming Documentary on Film Poster Art entitled “Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six“. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to chat with Kevin, and we thank him for taking the time to speak with us.

For those of you who may stumble upon this site, Kevin has spent a good deal of time getting a Kickstarter campaign out to the masses and hitting social media, in order to bring to you what I feel will be an amazing Documentary. The Kickstarter funding was a success and Kevin and his team are now traveling the globe, interviewing Illustrators, Gallery Owners, and even Blog creators, to get their individual takes on Film Poster Art.

I feel that “Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six” may just be the most important Documentary to ever be filmed about the Poster Art Scene, due to the sheer mass of talent that Kevin has been able to interview. To say I am excited for this film is an understatement!

I’ve been chatting with Kevin here and there online for the better part of a year, and he is one of the friendliest, most approachable guys I have the pleasure of knowing. Along with my co-host, and Lead Creative at Azrael Group, Tim McKenna, we had the opportunity to sit down with Kevin over Google Hangout and talk about all things Poster Art, Poster Illustrators, and Moviemaking! We really hope you enjoy the interview, slight glitches and all, and please, please, please support this wonderful Documentary. It really is a labor of love.

Robert Bruno Does Pulp Fiction For Ltd Gallery!

Pulp Fiction by Robert Bruno

Pulp Fiction by Robert Bruno

Our friend and talented illustrator Robert Bruno gave us exclusive access to his work for the upcoming “Whoa Gnarly” show at Ltd Gallery in Seattle, Washington! We think his pieces based on Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” really capture the spirit of the characters and the film itself. Rob’s dynamic brushstrokes and colorful palette set just the right tone for what should be an amazing show! We wish Robert the best of luck with the show at Ltd Gallery and if you’re in the Seattle area, stop by the gallery at 307 E Pike Street starting on May 2nd!
