How many comments we’re receiving.
It’s cool, very happy.
But You need to work more on the “laughing part” :-)
Anyway, You’ve time till the end of the week to think about the movie poster we’re working at, so… write!

In the meantime, here we are for showing You some pics of the new poster we’ve realized for the European tour of our friends at Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
As I told You, Jon kept in touch with the idea of having a Schiele woman with a sci-fi touch.
So, we worked on it and this is the result!
After the first 2 colors, red and green, we worked on the third one, a metallic gold.
It had to cover the signs leaving them visible and we made it.

This new raw paper we’re using lately is wonderful and colors pop up of it.
Then we printed a white ink.
It had to give a really Schiele touch, if You watch his paintings, You’ll find a white outline that is quite a trademark.
And it helps the image to come out from the paper.

The fifth color has been black, to define the image and create the final design.

We’re very happy, we totally dig the idea of this poster.
We think it’s a very ironic style, we thought about Schiele on a alien spaceship working on a portrait of a woman (a kidnapped one?)…
Tentacles, aliens, golden woman in a secessionist style!

…I try to write on the blog…
I’d like to make it more frquently but You know, sometimes we’re busy, sometimes I’m lazy, sometimes I like to spend my days playing with my friends and some other times I like to ride my bike.
So sometimes I’m pretty tired in the night to write.
Sorry.
And we’re really working a lot in these weeks.
We’ve just Mono, then a new Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (talking about this below), the last print for the Argento serie, another Movie poster to be announced soon, cover arts (ASG for Relapse and Zolle fr Supernatural Cat), the next Asymmetry festival artwork and then other gigposters coming in the next months…
Moreover we’ve bought a new vacuum cleaner (what a super cool name!) today and it’s been a really tough day cleaning the studio… You cannot even imagine!
But it’s ok, things are good, and like grandmothers always say: when you’ve got your health, you’ve got everything…

So, about the upcoming Jon Spencer Blues Explosion print.
We’ve just realized a run of 200 pieces and we shipped 150 to the band for their european tour starting today in Spain.
Looking forward to meet Jon in Italy, always cool to see them live.
And the last print has been a good challenge.
Jon loves the art of Egon Schiele.
Well… who didn’t?
I remember years ago, Lu and me were in Austria in Tulln, the home town of Egon Schiele, it was a commemorative exibithion and wow! We saw almost all the paintings, drawings and art of the genius. Wonderful.
Just to tell You we love Egon Schiele a lot.
Jon wanted something inspired by him but also by Sci-fi movies such as “The green slime” or “Ufo”.
So we imagined if Egon Schiele was addicted to these things too.
And it’s been fun to work on the new JSBX poster.
And You’ll see, in the next days what we mean.

It’s a 5 colors print on raw paper.
First ink has been a red one.

These ones below are signs people kidnapped by aliens declared to remember.

And second color is a metallic green ink.
A very slimy one:-)

So, I guess You can see something already!
Tomorrow we’ll show You more, don’t worry.
And by the way… we’ve decided from the next posts we’ll start a regular contest giveaway.
So, if You like what we do, if You’d love to have some of our crap or You just have time to waste and You like to read useful things… stay tuned

Meat and Bone

Posted in **News**, Posters, Prints with tags , , , on September 13, 2012 by malleus

We’re really proud to show You another work we’ve just shipped to the States today.
The final result is exactly what we had in mind while drawing it, and it’s really rare things comes out so extraordinary perfect.
First of all, let’s start from the beginning.
We’re talking about another poster for our friends of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
Apart from being one of the best live bands we’ve ever seen and a supercool band, they’re also totally fond of Malleus.
And I think that, when things are reciprocal, everything comes out way better!
Said that, let’s talk about Meat and Bone.
It’s the title of the new album of JSBX and Jon contacted us cause he wanted a poster to commemorate the new work.
And You can find it here, where You can preorder the rad “exploder package”.

We thought about the “meat and bone” idea and we worked about the idea of a woman in front of a mirror reflecting herself as a skeleton.
But there’s more, as You’ll see.
We worked in a “secessionist” style too and we used a new paper we’re getting addicted to.
It’s a lighter one and totally awesome, materic and rough, and metallic colors really pop up on it.

Let’s go with the printing process.

 

We started with a gold to work on the mirror and background, a nice tapestry on the wall.

 

Second color has been a red.
And then a lightly trasparent white to obtain different variants of it to have a dirty color on bones and a light pink on the woman skin.

 

 

 

And the final effect is great cause the white created a sort of “real skin effect”.
It’s very cool.
Also we printed it to have imperfections on the skin, the idea was to have a sort of “Schiele” colouring.
So the white on screen was different.

 

And the idea came when Jon asked for a Secessionist mood and a sign “JSBX 2012” similar to the Egon Schiele one.
And with black color we closed the poster.

 

 

It’s a run of 250 pieces.
200 are in the USA for the preorder.
We’ve 50 and we’ll keep You posted about them.

 

Very very happy:-)
