Ratchet & Clank’s Anniversary Poster Out Today
This year is Ratchet & Clank’s 10th anniversary, to celebrate this momentous occasion, Insomniac Games have teamed with iam8bit, a group of artists, to produce a series of highly commendable Ratchet & Clank posters.
Each one of the Ratchet & Clank posters has been made by a different artist and will be hand-screened. Plus, there’s only one print run for the posters and Insomniac stresses, “These will never be produced again! Seriously!”
The first poster (below) is out today and has been made by British artist Aled Lewis, who has worked with iam8bit, Threadless, TeeFury and Mondo. It’s 18 x 28 inches and is available from the iam8bit store.
Here are Lewis’s thoughts on creating the piece.
“Whenever we see Ratchet and Clank they are usually in the thick of the action or poised for adventure, so I thought it would be nice to see our heroes in a much lower gear; reflecting on their achievements over the last 10 years. There didn’t seem a more appropriate way to explore this than by showing a cross-section of the weapons and the gadgets that have defined the franchise and brought so much pleasure to fans of the game.
“There’s no way I could feature everyone’s favorite guns, but I tried to pick a bunch that represent each game and celebrate the variety and invention in the gameplay. I hope R&C fans get a kick out of the little details I’ve added!”
We’ll have details on future posters as they’re released.
