Back by Popular Demand: The Belafonte Poster

We're happy to announce that we've reprinted--again--one of our most popular original art prints, "The Belafonte." 

If you're not familiar with this poster, it is a 4-color 18"x36" screen print on 100lb bright white paper. The subject of the print, is the ship named the Belafonte, from the 2004 Wes Anderson movie, "Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" starring one of America's greatest comic actors, Bill Murray as Steve Zissou, an oceanographer aboard the research vessel the Belafonte.

Needless to say, I am a bona fide Wes Anderson fan. So when I had the chance to create something for Spoke Art's group art show, "Bad Dads: A Wes Anderson Tribute," I quickly picked the Belafonte from my favorite movie.

The Belafonte turned out to be a great subject for a poster. As you can see in my making-of-the-Belafonte video, this was truly a fun assignment for me. I am kind of a nut for getting into tiny little details, and I love the "dollhouse" effect of The Belafonte cross-section in the film. That particular scene of the movie always stuck with me. So recreating it was a blast.

Spoke Art's group exhibition continues to be a smash every year. If you too are a Wes Anderson fan, be sure to check out the other contributions--from prints to paintings to sculptures--as well as my other Wes Anderson inspired original art print, The Grand Budapest Hotel.
