Suntup Editions Announces Covers Collection Gerald’s Game Print By Rob Wood

This month, Suntup Editions reveals their fifth print from artist Rob Wood. Previously, they published Rob’s artwork from Needful Things, Nightmares and Dreamscapes, Four Past Midnight, and Dolores Claiborne. Now, Suntup is offering Rob’s beautiful art from the first edition of Gerald’s Game as our latest addition to The Covers Collection.

Gerald’s Game was the 31st book published by Stephen King, originally released in May 1992. The novel, along with the author’s other 1992 release, Dolores Claiborne, was originally conceived as part of a larger work to be entitled, In the Path of the Eclipse.

To create the visual required for the first edition cover art, Rob Wood built a faux bedroom set inside his home. After playing with several additional elements to help explain the story – alternate bed posts depicting two bodies entwined, a window in the background indicating the possibility of escape — the artist decided on a more simplistic approach. The cover would consist of only a bed with an ominous set of handcuffs hanging off the bedpost. As a result, this startling image became one of the most iconic in Stephen King cover history.

These prints are hand-signed by Rob Wood, who has also created two incredible Remarques which appear on the first 20 large prints. Six of these are available for purchase at the time of the release, so act fast on those. Remarques are allocated randomly.

The Comic Con Museum Announces The Art of Shag Exhibit 

The Comic Con Museum in San Diego is teaming up with Josh Agle, the prolific artist known as Shag, to present a look at his works, methods and career.  Imbued with a distinctive attitude and sly sense of humor the works of Shag blend Pop Culture, Tiki Culture and the Mid-Century Modern aesthetic to create unique pieces that are unmistakably of our time, but reminiscent of animation and commercial art from the fifties and sixties.

The exhibit will showcase originals, prints and a sampling of his books and merchandise created throughout his career in a gallery touched by the same wry and colorful sense of retro decadence that features so prominently in the pieces on display.

An exclusive Exhibit Preview event with Shag that benefits the Comic-Con Museum is scheduled for Friday, September 20.

Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, craft cocktails and live music from The Martini Kings while you mingle with Shag in a mid-century inspired lounge space. Tickets are $250 and include a signed limited-edition print, courtesy of The Shag Store and Shag himself.  Act fast, as tickets are extremely limited and will sell out very quickly! Order tickets HERE.

The exhibit is open, free to the public, from 10am – 4pm on Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22. The address is 2131 Pan American Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101.

Mirages: The Art of Laurent Durieux

Mirages: The Art of Laurent Durieux is the first book to bring together the amazing creations of the poster design virtuoso, Laurent Durieux. 

Laurent Durieux doesn’t actually live in a retro-futuristic world imagined by H.G. Wells and designed by Raymond Loewy. In Durieux’s world, gigantic robots tower over forests populated by mythical beasts such as Bigfoot and King Kong; city skies are thick with airships shaped like Snoopy, while Buck Rodgers-like vehicles whiz by on slender monorails; and movie monsters are portrayed as sensitive creatures, victims of their grotesqueries rather than revenge-fueled fiends.

Though he’s spent two decades as a designer and teacher, the Brussels illustrator and graphic artist was only recently discovered in the United States, thanks to a number of high-profile awards and marquee commissions, including a 2013 screenprint of “Jaws”, which caught the eye of the film’s director, Steven Spielberg. The climb from relative obscurity began, though, in 2011, when Durieux  was named one of the world’s 200 Best Illustrators by the influential international advertising magazine Lürzer’s Archive.

The 254 page hardcover art book will be released on March 3, 2020 and can be pre-ordered HERE.

New Art From Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

On October 18, evil will reign. Here’s a brand new piece of art from Maleficent: Mistress of Evil that just debuted at D23 Expo.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after Maleficent, in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora. The film continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.

Oscar and three-time Golden Globe winner Angelina Jolie (Girl, Interrupted, Wanted) and Elle Fanning (The Beguiled, Super 8) reprise their roles as the dark fairy Maleficent and Princess Aurora, respectively, two characters from the studio’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty, whose untold story was previously brought to life on screen in 2014’s Maleficent.

Michelle Pfeiffer (Murder on the Orient Express, Ant-Man and the Wasp), the Golden Globe Award-winning, Emmy nominated and three-time Academy Award-nominated actress joins the cast as Queen Ingrith. Also joining the cast of the sequel are Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange, 12 Years a Slave), Ed Skrein (Deadpool, Game of Thrones), Robert Lindsay (My Family, Wimbledon), and Harris Dickinson (The Darkest Minds, Trust).

The film is directed by Joachim Rønning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Kon-Tiki) and written by Linda Woolverton (Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast) and Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster (Transparent).

Suntup Editions Announces Dolores Claiborne Cover Collection Print By Rob Wood

Suntup Editions announces their fourth print from artist Rob Wood. Previously, they published Rob’s artwork from Needful Things, Nightmares and Dreamscapes and Four Past Midnight. Now, Suntup offers Rob’s beautiful art from the first edition of Dolores Claiborne as their latest addition to The Covers Collection.

Dolores Claiborne was the 32nd book published by Stephen King, originally released in November 1992. The novel, along with the author’s other 1992 release, Gerald’s Game, was originally conceived as part of a larger work to be entitled, In the Path of the Eclipse. After doing a whole series of sketches for Dolores Claiborne, including some of dust bunnies under a bed and many different concepts for the eclipse, the art director at Viking suggested a view of Dolores from the bottom of the well. As a result, we have Rob’s stunning artwork capturing Dolores standing over a wide well as the eclipse takes place behind her. The glorious detail to the brick can be seen here in this print like never before. It is easy to see why, of the many covers Rob Wood created for Stephen King, this is the one King personally asked if he could own.

These prints are hand-signed by Rob Wood, who has also created a Remarque which appears on the first 20 large prints — nine of which are available for purchase at the time of the release, so act fast on those.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.
