And with this release the screen print scene has officially gone meta! Just as Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs is a parody of Star Wars, this hilarious new Spaceballs “The Schwartz Awakens” screen print series by Joshua Budich is a parody of Olly Moss’ now iconic Star Wars screen print series for the original trilogy (seen here). What The Blot really loves about this release, produced by Nakatomi Inc., is that everyone involved has totally embraced the fact that this is a send up of Moss’ original designs much in the same vein Spaceballs imitates Star Wars and so many iconic sci-films. In turn these prints can also be interpreted as an interesting commentary on art and the movie poster/screen print scene in general.
The Spaceballs “The Schwartz Awakens” Screen Print Series by Joshua Budich goes on sale at 2pm CST today, Wednesday, December 9th, at the Nakatomi online store. Each movie poster is an 18”x24” 4 color screen print on natural paper. Individual prints will be $30 each, while full sets of all three prints (with matching numbers) will also be available for just $80. There will also be a killer Iridescent Foil Variant Set released limited to just 30 sets that will retail for $200.
