I like the concept of that but not the execution. Like, I wish Francavilla had drawn it, or something.

Haven't seen much talk about the Struzan Bladerunner but it is very nice:

Pretty excited to see these classics getting the screenprinted treatment.

Received the BladeRunner art print, great job Bottleneck, keep 'em coming! And thank goodness Drew signed the print with a subtle color pencil, good call whoever decided on this. I have a few prints of his that I'll probably never frame because his signature is so massive and signed in a color: example, white pen in a black area or black pen in a white area that it literally is a distraction (in my opinion). Granted, this print comes with not one, but two dueling "Drew" signatures, I didn't realize prior to purchase that this is a reproduction from something he did with this image in 2003 (just copyrighting the image perhaps?) and already had the "pink arrow" 'Drew' signature seen pictured in the release announcement.

Well, it's a reproduction of his painting, all of which are going to have his signature. I think all of these Struzan posters have had the original paint sig as part of the print. It would be inappropriate and weird to Photoshop that out.

Yea felt disrespectful to ask him to remove. Believe it’s also in all Peak and Alvin reproductions too. Not sure about the 2013 thing but it’s definitely the only scan they had for this print to use.

Same thing with the big signature. I know it’s been a talking point in the past but I’m just glad he’s still cool with doing this. The pencil was a night touch too. Worked out

I like that pink sig on the bottom right. Picking mine up this week. Looking forward to seeing it IRL.

(would really love to see Alvin's get a screenprint as well, but that feels like selfishly wishful thinking tbh)

Its a treat to have these printed as it it to have him sign it. Don't really have an issue with where. And now you have the option for a sig. So everyone wins.

This x10. Love having a real signature by him on one of my favorite properties on a screenprinted version of one of his best pieces.
