After the huge success of Todd Slater’s previous The Legend of Zelda inspired screen prints “Overworld” and “Underworld”, Todd realized they were being seen as more than just a promo for an old video game. “For some,” he said on his website, “they were a window to the past, remembering the endless hours facing the same enemies, bosses, and stages over and over again. For others, particularly, people outside the 20-40 age group, the pixel characters meant nothing, but what they saw instead was the intricately woven design.”
Todd then decided to release two all new video game themed prints, the Metroid inspired “1986” and the Mega Man inspired “1987.” Since both Nintendo games have a sci-fi vibe to them, Todd chose to print both prints entirely on mirrored rainbow foil paper stock. How cool is that!?! These were Slater’s best sellers at Flatstock and probably won't last too long on his online store. So act quickly!
Both “1986” and "1987” are 18”x24” 3 color screen prints. Each print comes signed and numbered by the artist and both prints have a limited edition run size of 100 pieces. You can purchase both of these prints (while supplies last) at ToddSlater.net for $40 each.
