Geek-Art & Caurette: a shared passion

It’s been more than ten years since Geek-Art.net started sharing with its readers the work of artists, graphic designers, illustrators, painters, sculptors, all of whom inspired by imaginary worlds, with one goal in mind: connecting art and pop culture.

When these artists, from all backgrounds, take a hold of our favorite fictional worlds, news artistic perspectives are open to us. Cinema, literature, comic books, manga, video games, TV series: every artist draws, directly or indirectly, from these never-ending sources that are the cultures of the imaginary.

Geek-Art offers to pop culture fans the possiblity to dive into the world of art, and to fans of art the possibility to dive into pop culture. Let’s just say that our paths were meant to cross!

Dive into Geek-Art’s universe on their blog and their socials!

A match made in heaven…

Today is the day Geek-Art and Caurette get together once again to delight all the art fans out there!

After many months spent working on that project, we are beyond proud to finally launch our Time Limited Art Prints (TALP for short)! Here’s how it works: instead of printing a fixed number of posters and then sell them in only a few minutes, we’ll put an art print on sale for a few days and then print however many were sold during said timeframe. That way, no need to stress out if you are usually compromised by a slow Internet connection or if you are not available in the minutes following the launch of the print, eveyone can get their hand on one! Ordering during the few days the sale is happening guaranties that you will get your very own art print!

The artists we’ll be working with are thoroughly picked by Geek-Art and we trust them entirely. These time-limited art prints will be numbered depending on how many you guys will order. We’ll then be in charge of mailing your posters and we’ll send them, as we usually do, with all the care they deserve.

Anato Finnstark – The Witch King

From February 4th to February 7th 2022

SOLD OUT

The Witch King of Angmar

Admire this supeeeerb illustration by Anato Finnstark inspired by the universe of The Lord of the Rings and featuring the famous Lord of the Nazgûl, Sauron’s second-in-command in the second and third age.

The evil Witch King of Angmar, riding his fellbeast, a gigantic wyvern-like creature, is ready to swoop down on the Pelennor Fields which (spoiler alert!) will see his final downfall. The city of Minas Tirith is but a mere silhouette, yet strong and mighty, the white tower of Ecthelion, siege of the throne of the kings of Gondor, standing out from the mountain background. The whole composition is a moment frozen in time before the battle begins…

The true identity of this devilish creature is unknown. Once a mortal king of men, he was corrupted by one of the nine Rings of Power, becoming an undying wraith in the service of Sauron. After Sauron’s defeat by the Last Alliance, he eventually reappeared to found the evil realm of Angmar, where he gained the epithet “Witch-king” and ruled for almost seven centuries until the kingdom of Arnor was conquered.

The Witch-king returned to Mordor to facilitate Sauron’s return to power, then took Gondor’s city of Minas Ithil and refortified it as the fearful Minas Morgul, and there snuffed out the line of kings of Gondor too. He led Sauron’s armies in the War of the Ring, stabbed Frodo Baggins on Weathertop during the first months of Frodo’s venture out of the Shire to Rivendell, and at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields he broke the gates of Minas Tirith and killed King Théoden of Rohan.

Chief lieutenant and greatest servant of the Dark Lord across over 4000 years of Middle-earth history, he was a mighty war leader and an undying sorcerer of incomparable fear and dread. In his hour of triumph at the Pelennor, however, he was killed by the hobbit Meriadoc Brandybuck and Éowyn, niece of Théoden, at the end of the War of the Ring.

About Anato Finnstark

For those of you who don’t know Anato, he’s a French artist who’s been working in illustration and concept-art for several years now and has worked on a lot of licences including Magic: The gathering or Dungeons and Dragons.

In a unique and dark style, using a limited color palette and playing a lot with shadows, Anato manages to create heavy and beautiful atmospheres. It is clear that he has understood the essence of the work from which he drew inspiration and has managed to capture it in this digital illustration.

This second Time Limited Art Print featured this wonderful illustration by Stan Manoukian, A Sparkle in the Night, and we couldn’t be prouder! For those of you who don’t know Stan (yet), he published many books with Glénat, Ankama and Delcourt. He is best-known for his work with Vince, such as Vortex and Les Chronokids, which got them the Fauve jeunesse at the Festival International de la BD d’Angoulême in 2011!

A Sparkle in the Night is a magical work of art, where poetry and (friendly) monsters coexist in a gorgeous play of light! It was printed on beautiful fine art paper in a 19.69 x 27.56 inch (50 x 70 cm) format, so let’s just say that expectations were high!
