Here's a Cool John Carpenter Movie Poster Series By Artist Matt Ferguson
I’ve got a pretty rad series of John Carpenter movie poster art to share with you today that was created by artist Matt Ferguson.
The posters were created in conjunction with StudioCanal for the 4k restorations of four of Carpenters classic films. Those films include The Fog, They Live, Escape From New York, and Prince of Darkness.
All four brand new 4k restorations were done using the original camera negatives, with the colour grading approved for the new restorations and UHD versions by the films' Cinematographers: Gary B Kibbe and Dean Cundey.
The artist had this to say in a statement:
“Last year I had the distinct pleasure of being hired by StudioCanal to work on the 4K John Carpenter classics. I conceptualised and made all of the key art for the films. It was a dream job for me and I am really happy the art came out pretty much exactly as I intended. My ideal versions of the art are the UK quad size, it’s the way the art was intended to be viewed and also my personal favourite dimensions for movie posters, so I am really happy that we are getting to make these available to people.”
Each poster will retail for £50/ $60 or all four can be purchased as a set for £150/ $180. Each print will be signed and numbered by the artist and the total size of the edition will be based on the number of posters ordered during this period. As a special bonus, customers ordering the full set will also receive a bonus, never before released mini print.
The posters are currently on sale and they will be through January 17th, 2019. The edition size will be dictated by number of prints purchased during this period, so you will be able to get your hands on them if you want them.
