Re: Mondo Poster News & Rumors

I think the main theme of ACO is the attempt at criminal reform. A theme that has not been represented I think in any of the posters I've seen for it. This is probably the closest to that, although all the naked women seems a little misleading/misrepresentative. That being said, very cool illustrat...

Re: Laurent Durieux's Modes of Transportation

I bought a print from him a while back, had to ask repeatedly when it was going to ship and weeks would pass before i got a reply and this is after prompt payment. When he did reply he'd get irritable and complain that i was expecting too much of him, comparing my expectations to a company like Amaz...

Re: Laurent Durieux - Appreciation & Discussion

BTW I think Days of Heaven strikes the right balance, I missed the faces in the dress and could still appreciate it for its beauty. Same thing with The Shining (Danny variant) - took me a few seconds to notice the door. Subtlety is where the added art direction pays dividends, as well as typographic...

Re: Laurent Durieux - Appreciation & Discussion

I still think the 'Easter egg' approach can be done well, just look at most Olly Moss pieces. I don't have a problem with that, the problem is when you force it. That's why I feel like limiting his output of ideas (as well as getting better art direction, it's no accident his best pieces have been c...

Re: Bottleneck Gallery News/Rumors!

Will the Grateful Dead website or anywhere else have any of Daniel Dangers prints available in the future or was this a Bottleneck only release? Daniel will def have Aps. Ours should be arriving Friday/Monday and well get them out asap so he can sell his. If you're looking for a Scarlett then def w...

Re: Bottleneck Gallery News/Rumors!

Sure that's a given most of the time but i wondered if many just like owning every variant to satisfy the inner collector

Re: Laurent Durieux - Appreciation & Discussion

I disagree. I only got into the game in 2015, way after it sold but i was still figuring out what galleries to buy from in the UK as i always assumed overseas purchases were out of my budget. So before i ever had any knowledge of how much Mondo posters sold for ($100 maybe) or fetch on the aftermark...

Re: Laurent Durieux - Appreciation & Discussion

Apocalypse Now and The Shining were great from his second show, but not much else in my opinion. It's a tricky act to follow when you've created such game changing posters in the past (i.e. Jaws). I wish he would just take a bit more time in between them but I guess man gotta eat.

Expecting an artist to take detailed amateur advice on a project is like buying a cat to go for walks.
Bit of a blanket statement right there. I think you'd be surprised how many in this hobby are also professionals in the creative industry.

I was trying to figure out what bugged me about it and realized everything looks too sterile/sanitized. Not saying you gotta go full Horkey but some dirt or details would be nice. Maybe some color would've helped.
That's really part and parcel of Durieux's style though
