Last October was the seminal showing of our “Bad Dads – an art show tribute to the films of Wes Anderson” in San Francisco. Casey Weldon’s portrait of Bill Murray as six different Wes Anderson characters was a smash hit at the show and subsequently went viral via popular websites such a Slash Film (here), Booooooom (here), and Buzzfeed (here) to name a couple.

In addition to the net, Weldon’s piece also made it to print as full page spreads in both Italian Vanity Fair as well as the most current issue of Hi-Fructose Magazine.

We are proud to announce that a surprise release of 100 signed and numbered prints will be made available today, Saturday, April 2nd at around noon PST via the Spoke Art online store.

Hailing from Buenos Aires, Max Dalton is without a doubt one of the best illustrators we know… and we know many! Max’s whimsical works have caught the imaginations of folks around the world and we are very, very once again proud to announce that Max is currently hard at work on a new piece for our Quentin vs. Coen art show coming this April in New York City(can’t say much, but it’s Pulp Fiction related!)

Max’s Wes Anderson inspired art print, “111 Archer Ave” was one of the best sellers from our recent “Bad Dads – A tribute to the films of Wes Anderson” art show that premiered in San Francisco last Halloween. Get a look at some of Max’s work after the jump!

In addition to having one of the most bad ass contemporary Star Wars action figure collections we’ve seen, Joshua Budich also happens to be one damn fine artist. His Rushmore inspired piece for our Bad Dads show, “The Good Dad” was one of our favorite prints from the series in terms of sheer execution and creativity with a theme. For our upcoming Quentin vs. Coen art show, Budich has come up with an amazing Kill Bill image… Stay tuned!

We are very proud and excited to be working with Todd again on our upcoming “Quentin vs. Coen – A tribute to Tarantino and the Brothers.” Stay tuned.

What’s an Evanimal you ask? It’s the powerful illustration and design machine run by its mad creator, Evan Yarbrough. Within it’s steel belly, behind numerous dials and levers and resting on a comfy pillow, Evan is able to create a product that is creative, edgy, and crafted with a mastered hand. He strives to break boundaries, exceed expectations, and fully engage his audience….

We fell in love with Evanimal’s work a while back, but it really sealed the deal when we saw the great work he produced for R and R’s Bill Murray tribute show last year.. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with for our “Quentin vs. Coen – A tribute to Tarantino and the Brothers” art show this April!

Shannon Bonatakis engages her viewers using highly stylized and emotionally charged portraiture. Inspired by human experiences both personal and interpersonal, she lovingly interprets these universal emotions through her subjects. Often autobiographical in some capacity, her paintings give us a candid window into the deep dark caverns of the artist’s psyche. These narratives are often left open to interpretation, but emanate a deep personal significance to the creator which is not always clear, but always compelling.”

Shannon’s portrait of Margot Tenenbaum for our Wes Anderson inspired art show, Bad Dads, last October in San Francisco went to a very lucky home (you know who you are!) Can’t wait to see what she comes up with for the Quentin vs. Coen art show in April, stay tuned!
