Art Snob: Odd City’s USUAL SUSPECTS
by Matt Cohen on November 18, 2013
If you follow this blog, A. Thank you (I have low self esteem and every bit counts), and B. I’m sure you’re by now aware of Odd City Entertainment and the phenomenal work that they and their artists do. Keeping with that theme, I’m proud to spotlight Odd City’s newest poster release. Feast your eyes on The Usual Suspects, by artist Matt Ferguson.
Regular Edition, 36 X 12, run of 145 at $40
Variant Edition, 36 X 12, run of 75 at $70
Here is the artist, talking about his process for the truly badass pieces:
“From the beginning of the concept the design was very much a collaborative effort. I am used to working by myself so it was really cool to bounce off someone else and use their feedback to create something special. With this particular poster I really pushed myself in terms of the level of detail I would normally put into a screen print. I used some interesting techniques, especially within the fire elements to make it come alive. My hope is that people like it as much as I enjoyed making it!”
The greatest trick the devil ever played was making this badass art-work limited edition, so grab one on Wednesday, 11/20 (posters will be released at at a random time, so follow Odd City on Twitter for all the deets), when they’re unleashed on an unsuspecting world.
