Pass on this one but hopefully an artist does an 18x24 poster for it.
This. I was very excited to see the email come across with Grand Budapest on it. Clicked on the link and was underwhelmed. Wes Anderson's cinematic style is so vibrant with colors and none of that is evoked with Vania's print, not to mention likenesses. Hopefully another artist has a crack at the title, perhaps a Rich Kelly or Tong?

Well, what do you expect, mother? I'm half machine!

Not everyone. I love it. Admittedly my initial reaction was confusion, "Vania + Grand Budapest???" but the illustration looks stunning. Hope to pick it up.

I like the Fargo print but I feel like it's kind of a missed opportunity. I mean? Just the car in the snow with the trunk popped open, and the corpse of a deer?

I at least would have expected what we see in the pilot episode, ie Malvo driving the car, the car crashing in the snow, the trunk popping open, the guy escaping in the horizon with Malvo just standing there. I don't know, it just doesn't really represent the show, there are plenty of rich characters in the series & plenty of moments worthy to be captured.

I'm guessing Matt Taylor just went for minimalism, I just hope there will be other Fargo prints, so another artist can take a crack at it & really deliver.

What are the chances Mondo sells a Transformers Stout with a metal version on release day?

I'm hoping for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on wood on release day myself.

I'm really glad you guys aren't art directors.
