“Knighty Knight Bugs” & “The Wizard of Oz” by Tom Whalen (Mondo release)

Direct from Mondo:

Tomorrow we will be releasing two new prints by Tom Whalen. First up is a continuation of our LOONEY TUNES series, with his print for the hilarious, medieval short KNIGHTY KNIGHT BUGS. Special thanks to the Freleng and Blanc estates for their ongoing help with this series.

The other is a print for the inimitable, classic THE WIZARD OF OZ. We are very proud of this one. It is an 11-color screen print, that is not only one of our favorite pieces by Tom, but one of our favorite prints of the year.
On sale Thursday, June 6th at a random time HERE.

“Seeker Friends #16- The Sotofish” by Jeff Soto

And Jeff Soto wraps up his ‘Seeker Friends’ series with “Seeker Friends #16- The Sotofish” via Prints On Wood. I don’t think there is a better way to finish up this series than with a fresh new haircut. A clean new slate! Though Jeff notes that this isn’t the last of the Seeker Friends that we’ll see (see below).

It is a 6″ x 6″ UV print on sustainable FSC certified 3/4″ plywood. Comes ready to hang, is signed and numbered timed edition, and cost $25.
On sale Thursday, June 6th at 12pm PDT (for 24 hours) HERE.

This is the 16th print in the set. The end. I just want to say thanks to everyone who has supported this project. It has been fun, and I feel like of anything I have done so far in my career, it connected me the most with my fans. You sent me pictures of your kids holding the Seeker Friends, I got to see where they hang in your homes, people gave them as gifts to their friends and lovers, kids painted their own rendition of these guys, it’s been awesome! Thank you!

So yeah, technically, this is the last print in the set. I wanted 16 so they could be displayed in a nice sized rectangle. However, this is not the last Seeker Friend. I realized halfway through that there were some ideas that never became paintings, The Collector, The Fiesty, The Catcher, The Cryer, The Ghost, The Grumpy, there’s too many possibilities. I’m still developing their world. It feels too early to leave the Seeker Friends behind when there’s so much potential still. So the Seeker Friends will return…. but very sporadically. Maybe a few per year. Maybe one every year. Who knows? Definitely not every month! Once again, thanks you guys! -Jeff Soto
