Celebrating a true sequel success, James Cameron’s “Aliens” was a white knuckled thrill ride when it was released in 1986 and still holds up years later. The film is full of catch phrases (thanks mostly to Bill Paxton’s character) on top of the terrifying action. My tribute print combines some of the better known quotes and phrases, mixed in with notable icons and a portrait of Ellen Ripley.
Lights! Camera! Kitties! Part II The Sequel adds to the previous collection of cats in movies and TV. This latest group of eight 5″ x 7″ full color glossy postcards pays tribute to:

-The Cat Who Lived (Harry Potter)
-Imperator Furryosa (Mad Max)
-Cathiss Everdeen (Hunger Games)
-Doctor No! (James Bond)
-Lord of the Ringworm

ChetArt coloring books offer worlds of imagination waiting to be colorized. Each book measures 8.5″ x 11″ collected in a metal coil binding format. With each page blank on the back, it allows the colorist to detach, trim and display. The pages are super sturdy 80lb. cover stock, ready to take on color pencils, crayons and markers alike. Each book offers 15 pages to color.
Color This! offers a variety of ChetArt imagery from cats, dogs, monkeys, monsters, mythological beasts and more. The Monkeys and Monsters coloring book offers 8 Steampunk Monkeys surrounded by their gear and 7 crazy kaiju beasts, all from the slightly off-center mind of Chet Phillips.

Our good friends – and booth neighbors for this upcoming San Diego Comic-Con – have put together a project right at the intersection of art and science. It’s called AZR-0: Robots in the Wild, and takes the form of a scientist’s illustrated journal of her field study observing wild robots on a distant planet – they’re thinking of it as Gorillas in the Mist meets I, Robot. Like all of the Curio & Co. products, the book will have their sweet sense of humor and an insane attention to detail – like 100% handwritten entries – so that it will feel like you’re holding an artifact or a prop from a film.
More about Curio & Co.:
Curio & Co. is a small studio, founded in Vienna in 2010 to create pop culture collectibles from a fictional universe. From animation and comics to vintage advertisements and games – they are kind of keeping the game of make believe going and thinking of their products as immersive experiences, with all of the details (down to the names of fictional artists or production companies) and the choice of materials carefully chosen to be both as believable and silly as possible. They don’t even use their real names on the products, using a series of pseudonyms that fit the setting in order to keep the illusion going. It must drive their lawyers crazy.
They’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring their book to print. Visit the project page to take a look at the video (I can firmly attest that Cesare and Kirstie are actually that charming in person!)
Be sure to share the link with the robot fans in your life, and look for Curio & Co. (Small Press table O-02) right next to us at San Diego Comic-Con this summer!
