Todd Slater's Bill Murray Tribute Prints

"Raleigh St. Clair"
18" x 24" 5 color silkscreen
S/N edition of 150

"This print was commissioned by San Francisco's Spoke Art Gallery for their yearly Wes Anderson show. This is the third print in a series of Bill Murray characters from Wes Anderson films that I've done. The quote at the bottom reads: Dudley suffers from a rare disorder combining symptoms of amnesia, dyslexia, and colorblindness, with a highly acute sense of hearing."

"Lost in Translation"
18" x 24" 7 color silkscreen
S/N edition of 125

"This print was commissioned by Gallery 1988 for their Bill Murray themed show. Murray's character, Bob Harris, is searching for meaning/purpose while in Tokyo shooting an ad for whiskey. The Japanese running across the page symbolizes the whispers of the people all around him, and the luminous shapes that fill his profile are the flickering lights of the Tokyo skyline. Bob is lost amongst the high rises and a language he does not speak..."

$40 each
There were variants available but these went on sale last night around midnight EST & they sold out quick

Eric Tan's "The Lion King"

I really hope this is released as a print.  Here is some info. from Eric:
"Being creatively inspired and motivated each day is one of the greatest things about working in the same environment with other artists . I'm lucky enough to work with people who love collaborating and energizing the rest of the group by initiating fun personal projects that are a nice break from our daily duties.

Eric Hutchison, a fellow artist at Disney came up with a cool idea to create our own stylized piece based on one of Disney's famous villains. These interpretive pieces would eventually go into a hallway gallery on campus which showcased each artists' take on a familiar foe. I chose Scar from The Lion King.

Since I LOVE combining imagery and typography, you can probably guess what I chose to do. That's right, another movie poster (yawn!). My take on The Lion King is from Scar's standpoint, as the one who will do anything to be king. Therefore the tone is a lot darker as Scar's presence looms over the kingdom.

A project like this, which really has no limitations and reflects our own personal style is always exciting. Seeing where the other artists took their chosen villain was really inspirational. Although we all work in the same office on a lot of the same projects, we definitely keep our own individual aesthetic and personalities going. Hopefully we get to do more of these in the future."

Mike Mitchell's "George Skullington" & New Spoke Art Show

Mike Mitchell's Description:
"This is the piece that I’ll be showing in the Supersonic Electronic Invitational which opens Thursday, January 5th at Spoke Art in San Francisco, CA. It’s a limited, signed and numbered edition of 25. 16”x20” giclee.  It’s been a long time since I put this much time into a painting. It’s based on steel engraving done by William Holl of Washington Receiving a Salute on the Field of Trentonby which was painted by John Faed.  If you live near San Francisco, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s probably the most talent heavy show I’ve been a part of and I’m really stoked to be among such great artists."

Wes Winship's "Twin City Lines" miniprint

"Lately, Wes has been doing a lot of research on the history of Minneapolis, specifically on the stories behind some of our favorite buildings - such as First Avenue - and our city's features which are no longer around - such as the city's rapid transit railroad system.
Here's a nostalgic miniprint based on a 1914 Twin Cities streetcar map, showing the tracks which ran from St. Louis Park up into Columbia Heights and New Brighton and all the way over past the Burlesque studio into the far reaches of Saint Paul. Wes added some cool subtle nuances and warm splashes of color to reanimate the original map and make this piece look sharp in your home."
