hey thanks to all that came out for the show, it seemed both small and fun-filled at the same time, moved at a brisk pace and felt like we got some stuff signed, so that's good. special thanks to those that made the long journeys from out of state and to other long-time friends who i was like 'what are you doing here?' it was heart-worming. i mean warming. plus years ago when we were dating sarah asked if i was going bald and i was like 'no i just have thin hair' and so far, the pact holds. SARAH.  so, yeah, thanks again, always a humbling experience to be among friends.

til next time
- highlander poster - effective use of black and white photocopy machine
- blacksmithing with barry pepper
- okja / yeah i'm interested
- john williams speech / award / thing
- tarantino type credits
- pretty moving article about foster care. man's a legend.
- apparently vans lets you upload your own graphic now for shoes. i'm testing the quality, but could be preeeeeeetty neat.

ps - i donated some prints to be sold for a fundraiser thing, but i don't have the link. if someone has it, lemme know.

greetings. if you're in the portland area this saturday, and can navigate the hate crimes and protests, i'm part of a show at poboy art's gallery with marq spusta. its not a huge retrospective of my life's work, nor will i have some new masterpieces to unveil. its just going to be me, sitting there (probably standing), trying to hold my breath in for 2 or 3 hours to appear slimmer.  if you have anything you need signed, i will be happy to do so. also, if you are making the trek and are in search of something random that i've done in the past....drop me a note and i'll have sarah see if i have it and can bring it with. probably not movie posters, but like shirts / dvds / stickers / handbills.

edit: heres a pic of my pieces in the show.

juts a heads up, i'll probably be at the gallery from like 5ish to like 8ish? or less, if there's no a lot of people.

til then, let this calm you down -
- car seat headrest / fill in the blank
- wall of voodoo / mexican radio
- robert gordon / someday, somehow
- ink in motion
- Madame Tutli-Putli / short film
- rest in piece, sir roger moore

nothing new really to report, some artprints and posters and whatnot on the horizon, plus some sticker packs, which i personally enjoy. so if you're on my mailing list, your email will ping when those are around.

also, if you haven't seen alien: faceburster, i enjoyed it. not quite the impact prometheus had on me, but still a fun time. and sets up a future universe that is dark and foreboding.

other links - too many, too many.
- james rheem davis sent me this shirt that he saw in his travels abroad, in venice. funny.
- also, neat to see this palmer patch sewn on, as well as this pros and cons frameup. interesting sidenote, i was watching In Like Flint and realized Palmer's jacket patch is a reference to that film, which i did not know. z for Z.O.W.I.E.
- also, eric houtman has been updating me over the years and has finally completed getting his thing handbills signed by everyone that's still out there signing, pretty awesome.

other than that, just some links i enjoyed -
- interesting bladerunner article on deckard / gaff. plus an article on the films type.
- some neat alien covenant stuff - behind the scenes / hbo first look
- jeff soto has a show up in austin, i meant to link this last week, typically late me.
- alien 3 script story, plus a star trek / daft punk mashup that really works.
- interview with me about my alien soundtrack packaging.

captains log 0115

it looks like the soundtrack i worked on for alien is coming out, you can preorder it on mondo's site for the next....lotta days, once it goes up for sale. i believe each soundtrack comes with a screenprinted handbill as well. i won't have any record copies for sale, though i might get some handbills down the road. anywho, up to you, should be a cool set, four records inside a nice little boxset thing.

plus, in honor of aliens, some alien related links.
- gigers alien doc, thanks for the heads up jp
- prometheus explained...or someones opinion
- prometheus engineers translation
- r.scotts storyboards.
- operation alien, twas not meant to be, cherie.

captains log 0114

so, prints are shipping in the next couple days, by early next week all orders will have gone out. we appreciate your patience.

til then, hope this april is treating you well. some pretty epic movie trailers coming out.
THOR: RAGNAROK / VALERIAN AND 1000 PLANETS / BABY DRIVER
- speaking of baby driver, that radar love song is pretty rad.
- and thor-wise, some pretty nifty comic connections.
- plus another movie that flew under my radar. love.
- and typography...how many lives must it take?
- ol arnie. for awhile there, he was truly the destroyer.

captains log 0113: Captain America: Civil War poster sale

edit 3: round 2 emails have gone out, i assume that will wrap it up. appreciate all that participated, warms my shriveled heart.

edit 2: so, round one emails have gone out. but round 2 emails will go out later tonight after 6PM, so theres always a chance. thanks for taking the time to enter.

edit 1: so, emails are going out. sometimes people ask how it works, the lottery. basically, everyone emails their info to an email account set up for this purpose. sarah goes thru and randomly selects x amount of entries per page. like dis. we have about 375 prints to sell. we have more than 375 people expressing interest. we randomly pick people. pretty easy. after the sale is over, the inbox is completely emptied of all entries.

people worry about being disqualified. the only time we've disqualified anyone, we email them first. we don't check for multiple entries when picking people's email. we only check once they've purchased the print. then sarah goes thru and sees if that shipping address lines up with the address they entered. that's it, super easy. the people that get refunded always are contacted and asked why they entered twice, or weren't picked etc. so don't worry about being silently disqualified over a typing error, its always people that know why they were ineligible.

easy enough. and a bit of work for sarah - so go easy on her. all this attention is stressful.

---------------------------------------

looks like we're selling our copies of our poster for Civil War. go here to read more about how to enter, details and whatnot. if you have any questions, fire em off to me. good luck to all.

i'll be posting updates as they happen, so feel free to check back here if you're like 'has the first round of people been picked yet' or 'is the sale started' etc.

captains log 0112

welp, another month without a post from me, i'm slackin. i have my Captain America: Civil War posters in hand, so i assume the sale will be upcoming. sarah will figure out what works best. it'll be a lottery, free to enter as always.

also, i'm in a poster show with Marq Spusta in portland, oregon, sometime this spring? i think? just as a heads up, it'll just be a show of pieces i've done from the past few years, not movie posters, mostly music posters, some art type prints.

til then -
- fellow poster artist Dave Hunter has some medical bills going on, a good guy to support.
- some pretty interesting alien covenant trailers coming out. pretty stoked. can they recapture the magic? also looking forward to baby driver.
-probably been 7 or 8 years since i re-listened toThe Smiths. , but they're still awesome.
- a classic moment from watchmen. or rogue one. or mike mignola / rob liefeld.

lastly, deeply bummed about bernie wrightsons passing, as well as bill paxton. both giants in their fields. they will be missed.

captains log 0111

i've had a few emails about the poster i did for captain america / civil war. i'll have my copies available as soon as i have them in hand. so if you're on my mailing list, you'll get a note about them being on sale.

til then, enjoy your day.
- bit of a smile.
- bit of a journey.
- bit of a thrill.
- bit of a laugh.
- bit of a cry. this is 30 minutes from my house and man, it hit me hard. kids, i tell ya.

valentines day is almost upon us. hopefully sarah forgets. just kidding, i'll wing it, it'll be fine.

hopefully all goes good, til the next big update, heres something almost better. links to random internet things.
- the perfect valentines day video. that rihanna has put on a bit of weight, bold move.
- just kidding, this is obviously the perfect valentines day video. classic sixx.
- i saw this and it wasn't half bad. not as good as Stakeland, but still, pretty good.
- comic sans. pretty neat to hear the thought that went into it.
- monkeys. unsettling. tetris god. i believe it. akira production. geez.
- weirdly i can relate to this. i mean this, obviously. my career in a gif.
- dark knight visuals. pretty rad stuff. this bernie wrightson news on the other hand...not good stuff. if you haven't checked out Batman: The Cult, its awe inspiring stuff.

lastly, if you've got any leads on people looking to offload their collections of g.i.joes...drop me a note. i'm always on the look out for possible trades. '82-94ish figures.

captains log 0108

greetings. so, i'm sure it goes without saying, but everythings been shipped and if you haven't got it, drop us a note. i'm sure its fine. totally fine. but just double check.

unrelated, if anyone knows of any account manager / project manager type job openings, drop me an email, i'm putting the word out there for a family member, appreciate it.

so, for those of you that asked about my film picks of 2016, for the historical record, i finally done did one and posted it here.

secondly, some of you inquired about this frame contest results, it did actually wrap up a number of weeks ago, rene picked the winners and we sent out the prints. he did a live drawing / reveal on this facebook page, i assumed people were on it and knew about it but when i started getting emails, realized that wasn't the case, apologies. thanks again to rene for running it from start to finish and donating the prints. i know he got some flak for it but it was only because of his generous heart that it happened in the first place, so thanks for that, rene. for those that didn't win, thanks for contributing to a pretty nice frame gallery that future generations can look on for potential frame inspiration.

lastly, its been a hard week, losing miguel ferrer to the coffee table grenade that is cancer. robocop, deepstar six, twin peaks. a memorable actor that will be missed. on a positive note, happy birthday to john carpenter. still the legend.

captains log 0106

so, by tomorrow everything *will* have shipped, i believe. sarah has like 50 stickerpacks left to package up then boomski, done. let us know if you're not seeing shipping this week. normally shipping works like...every day things ship out, for like a week. so things arrive at different times for different people. if you're not happy with your order, obviously let us know, ship it back, etc.

other than that, should be pretty well settled up for last years business, let me know if i owe anyone anything. i shouldn't, but if you're waiting on me for something, lemme know. til then...

- carrie fisher in blade runner? probably not according to reports, but still, looks like her.
- qt and sir ridley on film stuff. always interesting. those other dudes are like 'what are we here for?'
- choice / radiolab. heard this on npr. pretty interesting. to a numbskull like me.
- hey, itsah Claudio Mazzoli, whaddya expect, fuggedaboutit.
- the prayer by this lady. play it at my funeral, it'll be hilarious.
- alien: covenant.... i might see this.

also, reminder that if you're interested in submitting a photo of a framed poster or print of mine, you can still do so, enter for a chance to win free prints. i'll keep you updated on that as i am updated. so far its been a pleasure seeing all the different ways people frame things, very cool, i'm flattered and humbled and life is amazing.

so, sarah has started shipping fox prints, they'll be shipping into this next week. calendar wise, it looks like i'll have them by friday, which means they'll ship the week after christmas, apologies. if that changes your order status please let us know.

if you're hoping to give your purchased items as a gift, i've made 3 pretty simple certificates you can print out and give in lieu of the actual print. a placeholder, if you will. just don't give it to someone if you actually didn't purchase the said items, they'll be let down. or do, up to you, i can't control you, maybe you have an unusual family dynamic.

let me know if these print poorly, i tried to make them a reasonable size, but not like, full page size.

- fantastic mr fox certificate
- 2017 lunar calendar certificate
- stickerpack certificate

thanks again.-tyler.

as sarah starts packing up prints, i am busy researching things on the internet. here are my results...SO FAR.

last update: fantastic mr fox sale is pretty well wrapped up, appreciate the orders and email entries, as always i am in your debt.

update 3: apologies on the lateness, second round going out shortly, mostly because we got stuck most of the day in a snowstorm and that messed up all the timelines. sarah's doing a final check on those that purchased in the first round, always a few people who entered twice, sucks to refund people, which is why i let sarah do it. but 2nd round going out and then we'll pretty much be wrapped up by tomorrow morning. small footnote: no need to email asking to be picked in the second round, sarah will just continue picking from the original lotto entries.

update 2: sarah's informed me the first round of emails have all gone out. a second smaller round will go out today at 8PM PST tonight, so there's always a chance we'll get you then, if you missed out. appreciate all the entries!

update: the lotto is closed and emails will be going out by 12PM PST today. i'll post an update when the first round of emails have gone out.
------------------------------------

so, my fantastic mr fox poster is being sold via email lottery. click here to read more about it, including how to enter.

i also did a 2017 lunar calendar, and you can pick one up here. each calendar comes with a fantastic mr fox handbill.

poster sale info: looks like all my ducks are lining up and my fantastic mr fox print is going on sale this week. i know, i know, i'm a bit late to the party, but as they say in canada, better late than never. i'll also have some other smaller items for you to turn your nose up at.

so, mailing listers, expect an email and you'll get the news as i send it out. thanks.

captains log 0099

alright alright alriggght, hope alls good. i got to thinking, its kinda a big week with a lot of people's families, plus some sort of shopping event on friday that people participate in, so i'd rather not add to the madness with a sale. so if you're on my mailing list, you'll get an email ahead of time, before the sale, which won't be happening this week.

last handbills sale update, all have shipped, most should have arrived. heard some reports of parcels being folded in half to fit mailboxes, sarah talked to the post office and they assured us this was not supposed to happen, they officially blamed 'new postal workers.' so, apologies. they try hard, they're good people, but sometimes mistakes are made. if you got a damaged handbill, drop us a note, we'll sort it out.

til then...

- this is how you die. cheery. just in time for the holidays.
