Poster Per Diem: Barry Blankenship's "Charlotte's Deathstar" Art Print

If you visit this site with any regularity, you already know I tend to write reviews for film and television inspired prints that are either currently on sale or are about to go on sale. And while I'll still be pouring the majority of my efforts into those sorts of posts, my daily "Poster Per Diem" feature will focus on awesome prints that have since sold out, never existed in the first place (AKA concept posters) or just bear mentioning. In other words: this is my chance to say, "I never got a chance, for whatever reason, to write about you on this here website, but I think you're really purty and I want to let the world know." Or something like that. Oh, and Per diem is latin for "per day" or "each day."

"Charlotte's Deathstar" Art Print
Barry Blankenship
10" x 10" (Screen Print) - Signed
$12 - Open Edition
Inspired By: Charlotte's Web and Star Wars

Ever wonder what a mishmash of Charlotte's Web and Star Wars would look like? Neither did I. But now that Barry Blankenship has answered the question nobody asked with his stunning "Charlotte's Deathstar," I'm completely on board in every conceivable way. As I understand it, the above design initially served as the centerpiece for a Damage Done gig poster, but it appears Barry wisely saw the potential for what turned out to be a killer art print and acted accordingly. The "Charlotte's Deathstar" screen print is currently available through Barry's storefront for only $12 (yes, only $12!) and measures 10" x 10". To learn more about the incredibly talented artist behind this poster, head over to barrytheartguy.com. You can also follow him on Twitter @barrytheartguy and browse his Dribbble. Good stuff all around!
