Buying Movie Artwork That ISN'T a Poster...?

I've tried looking online for some type of unique artwork that isn't movie posters. I've found certain images on LA Artwork which is different:


I've also seen some canvas artwork that looks nice from movies like The Dark Knight:


But all of these prints are on eBay. But are there other places to buy similar types of movie art online? Art that is movie themed, maybe printed on canvas, and is unique? I do enjoy framing movie posters, but I'm also trying to come up with other ways to keep the movie theme of the room going with different kinds of movie/entertainment art.

They're ok, but they seem more like photoshopped production stills than actual "art." The Joker ones are simply the posters edited into different poses from the looks of it.

I agree. There is something a bit cheap looking with these "artistic" displays. I would prefer getting some of the Polish poster versions of some of my favorites than these interpretive reproductions.

Its been discussed before - but I'm friends with the artist from L.A. Artwork. What he does is a work of art...I've seen him do it numerous times (he's borrowed my DVDs before to study the design of a certain scene) and have tons of his artwork in my home (including the original Edward pictured above). He has a website; www.LAArtwork.com for those interested in ordering. I'm still waiting for him to do a Buffy/Angel one...some day. Sigh.

Get rid of the "Why so serious" message and get it back to true color and I'd buy it.

To answer your question, well ... I'd just rather show off one of my unique cinema related piece I got off eBay (but the seller seems to be profiteering from other - most likely unlicensed - materials) that should be fitting for those familiar with his material.



The seller has some other stuff related to Five Deadly Venoms, Sony Chiba and Lone Wolf and Cub ..but I'm not as impressed with them as I am of the one purchased.

Mind me asking where you got that from. It looks like it needs to be hung on my wall.

Yeah, that's where I got it. They had a bunch of different artwork because they had a Shining party on Halloween: http://www.shiningparty.com/

Unfortunately, I think most of the stuff, including the one I got, are sold out, because they were produced in very limited quantities. Sorry dude.

Edit: Here's the original link for that poster. It does look like they're all gone. http://www.mondotees.com/index.asp?P...OD&ProdID=3578

Google Gallery 1988. Plenty of movie-themed art there.
