Yeah, that's one of the best posters of the year, hands down.

There's also something else bursting out the side :)

did you guys decide as a group not to add cobb's toy top totem to the print or was left up to gabz to decide?
If you look closely, Cobb's totem is in the print.
damn it. i can't find it...is it one of those things where you have to close one eye and tilt your head at a 90 angel to see it??

Yeah. Hurts to have no reasonable shot at this at all, but great great work by Gabz. If this were a wide release it'd absolutely be a contender for the year...

On the far left edge, start at Leo's forehead and go left.

I'm interested to know why Gabz' style of linework for faces is more restrained in the two commissioned pieces than in his normal work (case in point: Fargo). There are less lines and overall "fuzziness" in the detail shots. Was that a commission group request or just a switch in approach?

Yes. We communicated with Gabz and requested him to do a hybrid of the line work he'd used in the past for his screen prints, mixed with the line work for his giclees and other works. Luckily, he was willing to accept the challenge and push himself.

The more I look at it, the more I start to see Old School Ansin... If the lines were a little less organic/nervous, it might be hard to tell the difference. (and I mean that as a compliment)

I can see a bit of that comparison in the linework, but I think that's mostly attributed to the small roster of artists within the movie poster community. If Ansin & Gabz were side-by-side in a general pooling of illustrators, it's unlikely the similarities would be as evident.

That being said, both are incredible at what they do.

Duh.

It is a phenomenal piece of art though. Glad it isn't for a property I am in love with. Not bummed at all I won't own this but it is a drymounting great looking piece though. Congrats to the group. :pint:
