    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.
    His medium of choice? Acrylic on watercolor paper. And his choice of genre? Pop culture. JASON EDMISTON's style has been called "ideal realism," He has certainly brought that to the forefront of alternative movie poster design. His works have not only inspired other artists but have created a legion of followers, eagerly anticipating any of the pieces that spring from his mind and brush. Working very closely with Mondo, Edmiston has been at the right place at the right time to create some of the most popular posters on the market today.
    This limited edition screen print has both the artists signature and the number of the edition printed into the lower right corner.
