Following Laurent Durieux’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Nautilus Art Prints thought it would only be fair to cross the Channel (under the sea of course) and pay tribute to Jules Verne’s English alter ego: H. G. Wells.

So, we asked the talented French duo Stan & Vince to create a poster for a H. G. Wells title of their choice and they came up with “The First Men in the Moon”... Who better than Science Fiction comic artists to tackle a science fiction novel!

We are blown away by their rendition of this 1901 classic. Their sense of detail, composition and texture is just wonderful! The cherry on top, is that Stan & Vince were visually influenced by the 1964 film adaptation. In this version, the men use spacesuits, which wasn’t the case in the original novel.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Comic artists Stan & Vince (Stan Manoukian et Vincent Roucher) both born in 1969, met at the renowned Art College ‘Ecole Estienne’ in Paris, France. They first started working together in 1993 on the publication of the Vortex series (9 volumes). Working as a duo, they have released several comics for US publisher Dark Horse (The Shadow & Doc Savage, Tarzan...), and have published stories in several major cartoon magazines such as L’écho des Savanes, Fluide Glacial, Spirou, and Tchô. They have worked with french movie director Benoît Delépine (Albin Michel). They have designed movie sets, concept designs and story-boards for movies and have also worked in advertising. In 2004, they co-authored, with Pierre Coffin, the first season of the animated series PAT & STAN, which was aired on the French TV channel TF1. Stan & Vince have released several works for the Press, illustrations for children’s books (Bayard and Flammarion) and they have also illustrated a series of novels titled Merlin Zinzin. Since 2008, the French duo have been working together with ZEP on the comic series The Chronokids, which won the Angoulême Best Children’s Book Award in 2011. More recently, they also decided to sit behind the camera and direct their very first, short animation for Canal+: Metal Brutal et Minus. At the moment, they are working on a brand new animated series for TV.

At first glance I mistook this for Laurent Durieux's work.

Yup, one of my favorite framed prints. Got it in a gold frame with double matted black and gold. Looks amazing.
