This Tuesday, Vice Press and Bottleneck Gallery will launch a new “limited edition” Universal Monsters series! These officially licensed prints and posters will feature stunning art by Greg Staples.
‘For me the classic Universal Monster films have been ingrained into me since I was a child, not only with their legendary visual design and makeup but because they are almost not of this world. To me they are the purest form of escapism and something that simply couldn’t be made in this day and age. I decided to approach these illustrations a little differently by choosing to try to add a bit of realism, hopefully to capture a small part of their character so wonderfully portrayed by Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. This really was an honour.
These releases will be available in regular “movie poster” edition of 195 pieces priced at £45. The variant “art print” edition will have 175 pieces available and is priced at £50. Both prints measure 24×36 inches. Greg’s original paintings will also be available as “original art prints” with 150 pieces sized at 11.7×16.5 inches. These releases will be available on Vice-Press.com and BottleneckGallery.com at 5pm GMT (UK Time) and 12 pm EST. Worldwide shipping is available.
