Rattata Prints

Posted by campbell May 4th, 2012



Pokemon Battle Royale has opened in the most spectacular fashion, with 151 artists throwing their skills at 151 Pokemon. It’s fantastic to see the diversity of interpretations of Pokemon. Light Grey Art Lab has opened up their print shop, where you can purchase copies of my Rattata illustration that was done especially for the show. The prints will only be available until the 11th of May, so get in while you can.

Prints are archival quality and are a steal at only $40. You can pick one up here.

Pokemon Battle Royale

It’s finished, my illustration for the upcoming Pokemon Battle Royale exhibition at Light Grey Art Lab. 151 artists each illustrating one of the original 151 Pokemon. I was assigned Rattata for the show, who’s basically a purple rat, nothing particularly wild in his design, so I used him as a foundation to do an illustration of a burrow. Apparently Rattata’s breed like, well, rats, so we’ve also got a little brood on the go. It’s all about family Yo. I also had the idea of sculpting the burrow in the shape of a Rattata silhouette, but it didn’t turn out as clear as I had initially envisioned. I think it’s probably mainly due to the berries I stuffed it’s legs with. Maybe I should have left them out.

Lots of the other artists involved in the exhibition are sharing their work on twitter, so check them out. All works will be available when the show goes live on the 20th of April, they’re all prints and are priced at the super steal of $40. I hope they compile them all in to a book, that’d be amazing.

You can see some of my early sketches for the piece in my previous post here.

Pokemon Battle Royale

I’m putting together a piece for the gigantic upcoming Pokemon Battle Royale exhibition that is being organised by the Light Grey Art Lab. It’s an amazingly huge project where 151 artists are each responsible for drawing one of the original 151 Pokemon. I’m really excited to be in the show because I’m a bit of an old school Pokemon nerd, but also because this show will feature some of my favorite contemporary illustrators.

The Pokemon that chose me (that’s right, it was kind of the other way around to how Pokemon usually works) was Rattata. He’s…. a rat… but I’ll do my best with my awesome rat Pokemon. I WON’T LET YOU DOWN!

I’ll post some more preview shots over the next couple of days.

The show opens on the 20th of April and will have an online gallery that you can check out and purchase works from. All works will be prints, and available from the rock bottom price of only $40. That’s pretty kick ass really. If you have a favorite Pokemon, there is absolutely no excuse not to buy it.
