The Art of Amity: "You're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat" by Francesco Francavilla

Missed a week but not an issue. Let's get right into it today with our newest resident in the Amity Island art gallery with the talented Francesco Francavilla.

 Francesco Francavilla has been a fixture on the art scene for some time, with his art appearing in various comics and Mondo prints. His coverage really exploded with the success of the comic series Afterlife with Archie, which he did the art for.

For the 40th anniversary of JAWS Francesco made available for a 24hr period a limited edition print that had appeared, in an altered form, most recently at Comic Con titled YOU'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT.

"This 13x19" 40th Anniversary Edition giclee 
print is on sale NOW ~ today ONLY..."

"...for JAWS’ anniversary: the movie 
                                                   debuted in theaters 40 years ago today! :)"

"After today, this particular print will no longer 
be available online, so get on it while you can 
:)Cheers, FF"
There you have it, straight from his fingers, the time to buy this print has unfortunately come and gone. It's a shame because this print beautiful displays FF use of color and line work that has made him a hot commodity in the comic world. 

Just cause you can't buy it direct from his store anymore doesn't mean you couldn't find a decently priced copy on Ebay for about $99. Well worth it in my opinion, but how does our resident art critic feel about it?
 Follow "The Art of Amity" every Monday for a new piece of JAWS art. If you are an artist that would like to be featured on "The Art of Amity" please contact us or comment below. All a part of...
