Yellow Submarine print from comic book artist

Alex Ross, working on his "Yellow Submarine" painting.
Dark Hall Mansion, a company that specializes in officially licensed posters and prints, is about to release a limited edition "Yellow Submarine" print from renowned comic book artist Alex Ross.

In regards to the project, Ross explained, "For as long as I can remember hearing music, I have loved the Beatles. Not only do I believe they are the greatest musical group of all time, but also one of the greatest things to have happened in human history. 'Yellow Submarine' has also been one of my favorite films since I was six years old. The opportunity to work with the Beatles' likenesses in the very inspired context of the 'Yellow Submarine' film is an absolute dream come true. There is so much I love about these men, their legacy, and this film."


The full size painting
Ross cited surrealist Salvador Dali and Heinz Edelmann's original "Yellow Submarine" film as inspirations for this print. Beyond his work in comics, Ross' resume includes work for Hollywood studios and a print for the Academy Awards.

Coming in at a full 72 inches, the print will be distributed on paper and canvas in exact scale to the original painting. Only 295 paper editions will be available for $375 each; the canvas edition will have 125 copies available at $550 per poster.

Ross' "Yellow Submarine" poster is available for order from Dark Hall Mansion on Thursday, February 26.

Alex Ross is best known for his realistic looking renderings of super heroes, like the "Justice League of America" painting below.

Finally a 'limited edition print' that's really worth BEING a limited edition print!

So many bad jokes on that front that make this a beautiful exception from a fine arts talent to beat!

Ross is a superb artist (his Batman and Robin is definitive). But where are the Butterfly Stompers?
