  1. Poor New York. Left out of the poster scene again.

  2. they will be there next week filming. you seem to be hung up on artists being left out of a movie that is nowhere near being done with filming. if you have suggestions, im sure they would have completely open ears about who you think they should talk to in NY.

  3. I just think its odd that a big city like New York has such a small poster and print scene. I’ve always found it a curious thing. They should interview Luther Davis I think.

  4. They told me they’d be in the MA area meeting up with DD sometime soon — if so, they should get in touch with JC Richard! He’s really new to the whole poster scene, so that’d be a very interesting perspective to contrast with the more veteran perspectives of DD and Dan McCarthy.

  5. I could suggest a dozen artists but its not my movie.

  6. you should suggest em. theyve been asking artists for suggestions on who they should check out the entire time. artists lead to other artists, theyre going down the rabbithole.

  7. JC Richard
    Jaw Shaw
    Chuck Sperry
    Tyler Stout
    Guy Burwell
    David O’Daniel
    Mike Klay

  8. And by Jaw Shaw, I mean Jay Shaw.

  9. In New York…
    Jermaine Rogers (veteran)
    David Welker (newcomer)
    Mark McCormick (heavy metal genius)
    Two Arms (awesome graphic design)
    Luther Davis (master printmaker)

    In Los Angeles…
    Jeff Soto (gallery artist)

    In Chicago…
    Ryan Duggan (god)

    In Austin…
    Tim Doyle (pop culture whiz)

    Drew Millward (underrated superstar)
    Florian Bertmer (master draftsman)
    Zeloot (rulz)

    A girl can dream

  10. Wow, the banter in here is getting ridiculous. Anna, expecting a laundry list of every artist you like and being upset if they don’t make it in is ridiculous. Also, I have to think this is somewhat motivated by the fact that you represent David Welker. They have ample people advising them on who to cover, they’re not stupid, sheesh.

  11. I’m certainly not expecting anything nor would I be remotely upset over the filmmakers choices. DD said go for it so I did. I dont represent DW. I only assist in his studio along with a few other New York artists. Jonathan gave a shout out to his picks, so I followed suite. I think all these artists deserve props and many more. But maybe thats for another movie and another time.

  12. i think this looks amazing and they should be commended for even taking in a project like this – i for one cant wait to see it – and on a seperate note – anyone know who is responsible for the music in the background – i really like that song!

  13. As the person who wrote the article, I’m glad to see some people care. It got like 0 comments on our site. As a poster fan, I’m just so excited for this movie. The possibilities are endless, but Scout and Johanna are obviously exploring them and could they really have picked three better people to “highlight” than DD, Kevin and Jay? Definitely not.

  14. Passion is contagious. I share Scout and Johanna’s love for this amazing modern art form. Scout was also gracious enough to respond to my suggestions which was heartwarming. I think they will need more donations to make it to Europe though. I also agree wholeheartedly that they chose 3 excellent artists to focus on and I do think its important to focus.
