    Over the last decade and a half, the Alternative Movie Poster has emerged as a cutting-edge collectible with a rapidly growing base of artists, collectors and galleries. Many modern collectors have discovered that the alternative images on these posters are vastly superior to the traditional images created by the film studios to promote their films. Part pop culture and part fine art, these high quality, limited-edition prints feature the art of some of the most renowned commercial and comic art illustrators working today. Drew Struzan, Bill Sienkiewicz, Laurent Durieux, Tyler Stout, Ken Taylor, Mark "Jock" Simpson, Olly Moss, and many others have become iconic names within the Alternative Movie Poster (AMP) movement. Adding to the posters' desirability is the fact that they tend to be signed by their artists and are limited to small print runs, numbering from a scant handful of copies to a few hundred prints at most, each a work of art in both design and skilled production. Though Alternative Movie Posters originated as a series of humble online offerings for a niche audience, the medium has continued to gain greater and greater prestige among collectors. New prints will sell out of stock within mere minutes online, while some have their own special debuts at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, San Francisco's Spoke Art Gallery, and such famed events as the San Diego and New York City Comic Cons. Ultimately, these stunning prints are becoming coveted items among movie fans and are sure to play a greater part in the future of the collecting hobby.
    Living in Washington, DC, TRACIE CHING has been working in the medium of silkscreen prints for years. She is self-taught in digital art, specializing in portraiture with complex lines, and uses a limited palette of color. Although she works as a commercial artist and includes political portraits, she is best known for her Alternative Movie Posters.
    This incredible image of "The Dude" was created for a special showing of the film at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco, on November 21, 2012. It is in near-mint unused condition as has been designated a PP (Printers Proof) in the lower left and hand-signed in gold ink by Tracie Ching in the lower right.
