Muppet Posters: End Result

What better way to end the year then to devote my final post of 2011 to the Electric Mayhem. This was by far my greatest accomplishment of the year. It’s opened up a lot of doors, including a few art shows which I will be participating in at Gallery 1988 in L.A.

For those who missed this Muppet saga unfold, below is a Coles Notes version (or you can read the original post).

In anticipation of the new Muppets movie, I created a series of 70′s inspired vintage concert posters for each member of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.

When word of them spread around the Internet (BuzzfeedDWLQuipsologiesFFFFound, and more) they caught the eyes of Acme Archives, official licensee for original art for Disney. With minor changes, Acme sold and distributed each limited edition screen print (250x) on their website.

Here are some pictures of the final posters (Dr. Teeth is missing because I rolled my copies up in poster tubes).


Floyd: Bass

Janice: Guitar

Zoot: Sax

Animal: Drums

Thanks again for your support and best wishes for 2012. Happy New Year!

      Hi Michael! I’m IN LOVE with this series! Sooooooo cool! I’m now oesbssed and want to make sure I can grab each one but here’s a terribly annoying question: Do you know if Acme is releasing them at midnight on the days available, or will it be randomly at some point in the day? We are out of town with family on the 6th when two of the prints become available, and I’m neurotically worried that if I don’t get to one in the early minutes of the release, I’ll be out of luck! Any ideas on the best way to know the instant they’re available to buy? Thanks so much!!!!!

    Any chance these will be printed and sold again? I would love love love to get a full set! Email included with info – feel free to message me if you’ve got news! Congratulations on the fantastic, well deserved, press and subsequent sell out of merch!

      Thanks, Sarah! Unfortunately, no. They were printed at a limited run of 250 copies. However, Janice and Floyd are still available to purchase at Acme! (And I heard they are starting to pop up on Ebay :P)

    I’ve managed to get all but Animal!

    Curses!

    I suppose I shall just have to trawl eBay… Or hold my breath until ACME do another print run.
