Think you’ve seen all the bloodshed, bullets, and baseball bats you were going to get from Quentin Tarantino for a while? Wrong. Thanks to an exhibit by West Coast streetwear and skateboard kings Upper Playground, you’ve got 12 new stomach-turning takes on Tarantino’s “Natzi Killin'” whopper, “Inglourious Basterds”, and a chance to help the people of Haiti.
SA Studios, Upper Playground, The Weinstein Company, and Tarantino himself have collaborated on a special showing and auction which will offer up limited prints of 12 new posters for the Academy-Award-nominated film by illustrators including Grotesk, Morning Breath, Sam Flores, N8 Van Dyke, Alex Pardee, and many others—all proceeds going toward earthquake relief in Haiti. An on-premises show tomorrow, February 18th from 6pm – 9pm, showcasing the 12 prints will be followed up by a sale at the store. Six copies of each print, every one signed by Tarantino himself, will be available for $300. With no online sales, all you Hollywood readers have a leg up on the rest of us in getting one more artistic take on “The Bear Jew” working his magic with a Louisville Slugger.
