Sin City: A Dame To Kill For print by Paul Shipper

Odd City, again in partnership with the Austin Film Society, is proud to announce a limited edition screen print for the Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR!

We’ve all been waiting quite awhile for this film to finally come out, and UK artist Paul Shipper, with his first print for Odd City (and first screen print ever, actually), knocks this one out of the park.

“When I was asked to create a poster for the Frank Miller/Robert Rodriguez Sin City sequel, I was excited by the graphic nature of the film and its origins. The simplistic yet complexly rich approach of the black, white and red palette of the film is something that lends itself to the poster design. It’s also worth noting that this is my very first screen-printed poster! The original concept of the poster was loosely based on the original 1944 poster for Double Indemnity with the embrace of a man and woman being very prominent in the design.”
