Thought Bubble this weekend saw ace print house Vice Press show off a range of limited edition posters – and some are now on general sale, with more to be released next week.
Now on sale are some stunning posters inspired by the SF film directed by Doug Trumbull, Silent Running, featuring art by Raid71; a cracking Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster by Mick McMahon; Shaun of the Dead by Vice Press Creative Director Matt Ferguson; and some marvellous Thundercats art by Henrik Sahlstrom.
Over the years, Vice Press have built up a number of damaged and spare prints that we have wondered what they can do with. Rather than simply recycle them, they have worked with Awesome Merchandise on a range of A5 and A6 notebooks.
Each notebook features a cover that is made from a trimmed down print from over the past few years.
The convention screening of Shaun of the Dead also included a short advert for Vice Pess, created by video artist Damien Kazan which you can view here.
Co-founded by artist Matt Ferguson, Vice Press is an independent, UK-based print house producing officially licensed and limited edition art prints, posters and collectibles cult and mainstream movies, television, literature and games.
The company work with artists and designers from around the world to produce new and distinctive products for fans to proudly display at home or to add to their collection.
Vice Press will be releasing the second phase on Sunday 17th November 2019
