Tim Doyle’s “Quentin V. Coen” prints
Created as part of a specialty art show, Tim Doyle’s depictions of classic Quentin Tarantino and Coen Brothers moments are NOT to be missed. There’s a print for Death Proof, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, Raising Arizona, and No Country for Old Men. Each is $40, 12″ by 24″, and illustrates a stunning moment from films that will be talked about for generations.
MonsterGallery’s Wes Anderson Prints
Simple enough to please the man who created each film, MonsterGallery’s series of Wes Anderson prints are straight to the point, while still reflecting this amazing director’s visual style. This set of three contains The Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, and Rushmore. Each print is 16″ by 12″ and the entire set is $29.90 over at MonsterGallery’s Etsy store.
Mondo is easily the king of art prints and because of this, they aren’t easy to come by – most of the prints literally sell out in minutes. However, if you’re will to pay, you can find some classic prints on eBay. Be prepared to pay a hefty mark up. For example, JC Richard’s Fortress of Solitude print was $50 on Mondo’s site and is now on sale for $229.99 on eBay. Yet, Mondo has a variety of different prints that have been on sale this year. You can visit their archives to see all their prints to get a good idea of what is out there. Check out some of the prints currently listed on eBay here.
Fro Design’s Lost Anniversary Prints
Fro Design made his mark with weekly Lost prints and in celebration of the site’s one-year anniversary and the conclusion of the series, produced a series of stunning prints.

Each print is 11″ by 17″ and you can purchase an individual season print for $25, the entire six print set for $120, or a print with each number on it for $25.

Danny Haas’ Dual Identity Prints
As many origin and comics stories have told, sometimes the man underneath is just as important as the hero. Danny Haas’ prints focus on both side of some of the worlds greatest heroes: Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk and Green Lantern are all spotlighted here.

Video Game Prints
Bill Mudron’s Hyrule Map Print
