This guy does some good work.

Buy the shirt here.
Kind of expensive with the exchange rate, but Ken may have prints up soon.

For real... I need me a Ken Taylor. 20000 variant would be nice. Think this might be my first *serious* ISO. Got some worthy trades now.

He has some awesome work, I have his gremlins, national print, but the 20,000 leagues print is really impressive.

It was Ken's 20,000 Leagues that drew me to this place just over a month ago. Gutted that I just missed the original sale of the regular but I managed to get a 20K SS variant which arrived yesterday and is amazing to look at. Seems a lot of other artists get more attention than Ken but at the moment I'd say he was my favourite out of the Mondo regulars. Will definitely be adding Gremlins to my collection at some point and I also really like his Beneath the Planet of the Apes prints. Really liked his At The Drive In Wicker Man poster... hell it's all good!

When I get it in hand I might see if I can get a trade of my Tong Iron Man for Taylor's Hulk.

Ken didn't have his own thread?! His work continues to impress me and it only gets better. He's rising fast on my list of favorite artists.

I don't know, but I searched for a while.

Does Ken Taylor not have a mailing list? Been on his site but don't see anything, so presume a no. Just want a heads up in case he has a few HULK prints for grabs.

Most of his artist editions go up on postersandtoys.net, if you are on their mailing list you are probably as good as you can get.

I have always loved Taylor's illustrative style. He rates up there with Ansin, imo

When I first saw his Alien II I was hooked and have since been actively collecting both his film and art prints. Hell, I even purchased Sucker Punch with no inkling to ever see the film, purely for the art of it! :oops:

He's also an artist who can work on the fly, just witness his creations at the Secret Art Wars in Melbourne to see him in action:

Thanks for the secret wars links, it's cool to see the guy whose posters we cherish so much in action! Was recently put on to Taylor and within the last week was lucky enough to pick up an ATDI wickerman, a Denver Mogwai print and the 20,000 variant! :drool:
