Thanks to all who attended to the Scorsese show last weekend in NYC. It was a huge success! For those who couldn’t make it and still want a copy of my No Direction Home poster, they’re a few still available at Spoke Art’s store right now.
I’m sorry, I just realize that I made a mistake on my last post. I meant posters will be available on Friday, April 26th ! for online viewing and purchase through the Spoke Art website.
Dylan is God to me, and I don’t like to use his name in vain. But I thought that the upcoming “Scorsese: an art show tribute” would be a good opportunity to create a devotional poster about him. Presented by Spoke Art, the show will be hosted at Bold Hype Gallery in New York City. I hope New Yorkers like this artwork that tries to show Macdougal street the way it looked in the 60‘s, where it all began. For those who don’t like the city, there’s a colder rural image if you turn the poster upside down. Nevertheless, the concept is redundant in both pictures: No direction home (which is by the way the name of the movie that inspired this poster).
The original idea was to attach a small engine in the back of the poster, to spin the image every 30 seconds, but unfortunately it was out of our budget and it would’ve been uneasy to deliver. You will have to do it manually, I’m afraid.
Scorsese: an art show tribute
Friday, April 19th – Sunday, April 21st
hosted at Bold Hype Gallery, NYC
If you can’t make it to the opening, posters will be available on Friday, April 19th for online viewing and purchase through the Spoke Art website.
That’s right, 111 Archer Ave, inspired by Wes Anderson’s film, The Royal Tenenbaums, is now available for purchase!
Priced at only $20 (or $30 framed) this limited edition print measures 8” x 10” and is available starting today. For the next 10 days, this print will be available to anyone who wants one, but once that 10 day window is over, the print will be retired and never printed again!

Second part of Bad Dads: a tribute to the films of Wes Anderson opens tonight, Friday 26th, with the usual Halloween costume party. I’ll be presenting an actual deck of cards, showing characters of the first four films of Wes Anderson. A slight variation to the Happy Families cards featured on the poster, suitable for common games like poker and blackjack. The edition is limited to 150 decks, and they’re all signed and numbered. You can get yours at the show: Spoke Art, 816 Sutter St. San Francisco, CA. Decks remaining will be sold online after the opening.
Once again, Spoke Art returns with its annual Wes Anderson-tribute art show, Bad Dads. This year, a short but huge debut of the exhibition will take place at the New York Comic Con from October 11th – 14th. And since the show will be divided in two parts, my contribution for the show this year will be divided in two parts as well. First part consists in a simple but funny “happy families” cards displayed in a poster. Only 30 copies will be made and they will be exclusively available at the fair. If you interested on getting your hands on a copy, go visit the Comic Con. Spoke Art will be at booth #3220.
Second part of the show will open with a Halloween costume party at Spoke Art San Francisco next October 26th and 27th. And boy, oh boy am I excited about my second artwork! Coming soooon!!!!
These promotional posters were commissioned by the historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco to promote a sanctioned screening of this film at the theater.
Hand numbered edition of 150. 18″ x 24″. Available now at Spoke Art!
