Flim and Flam from new MLP Poster Book by andypriceart Flim and Flam from new MLP Poster Book by andypriceart
Since this was shown on Entertainment Weekly's webpage, I think it safe to reveal here- This is one of three posters I did for an upcoming  book release from Little Brown publishers this summer.

While the lettering and graphic designs are all digital, as always the rest of the art is entirely traditional. I wanted this to have an "old-timey" feel, so I started by using colored paper to help tint all the colors I used, and to keep the background from looking too bright and clean. I also tried to select "period" looking fonts to reflect that early 1900's feel that these shysters exhibit.

This is one of 3 posters I did, and while I was very happy with each of them- must be honest, this was my least favorite. Can't exactly reveal what the others are yet, but one is very much a representation of a favorite holiday, and the other is a first edition favorite.

colored pencils, copic markers, gouache on colored paper.

Hey Andy, will this be for sale as a poster at HeroesCon this year? (assuming you'll be there again)

No, I won't be selling prints of this. It will be available in a poster book available in bookstores this June.

This will be about the same size that I sell my prints, somewhere around 12x18 or 11 x 17!

What font did you use for the very top "Flim & Flam?"

I'm not sure! I can't find my notes on the fonts!
I went through a LOT of fonts for this one, trying and testing... I've got about 700 on my machine.

Thats ok, I'm drawing a poster in a similar style. I've had to go through a lot of fonts too!
