As the summer movie season ramps up so does the barrage of movie posters. Most are not great (or even good), but these limited-edition Iron Man 3 posters by Uruguayan illustrator/designer Martin Ansin set the bar really high. Though these posters went on sale (and quickly sold out) at Mondo earlier this month, we can’t help but ogle at these superior specimens of cinematic posters, which feature metallic inks. These standard and color variant prints feature not only Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, but also Don Cheadle as Iron Patriot, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and scenes from the movie. Mondo really is the go-to spot for prints and memorabilia (here and here and here), and this is a fantastic addition.

British artist Steve Payne marries 17th-century Russian general portraiture with our current celebrity-obsessed culture… with remarkable results. He uses digital copies of Napoleon-era portraits by English portraitist George Dawe, then quite seamlessly photoshops celebrity heads on top. “One thing I’ve always wanted to try is to incorporate someone into a painting, mimicking the painterly brush strokes and making everything fit and work nicely and look natural and stuff,” Payne says. “There’s an art to head swapping, I’ve seen so many awful attempts. The most important things to consider are anatomy, perspective and lighting. If you can get those things right, you’re more than halfway there. My artistic ability serves me well with this stuff, I can just tell if something looks wrong.” Just a small sample below, be sure to check them all out.
