The poster will be limited to onlt 175 pieces and will ship in April.
Tomorrow we’re wrapping up Nick Week with a stunning new poster and pins for one of the single greatest, and surprising, “kids” shows ever: REN & STIMPY. Following up on his first poster for the series, “Svën Höek,” Florian Bertmer has again stepped up and delivered the goods on a poster for the episode “Fake Dad.” In the episode Ren and Stimpy become adoptive parents to a seven-year-old Lummox named Kowalski. Florian’s style is a perfect compliment to the iconic animated style of the show and we couldn’t be happier to have him return to the series. In addition to the poster, we’ll also have a handful of new pins designed by Florian celebrating various characters from the show: Ren Höek, Crocostimpy, Kowalski, and Powdered Toast Man!
“I don’t think any other post-war era cartoon has come close to REN & STIMPY in terms of amazing animation and utter weirdness to this day. Even by today’s standards, the insanity that made it past censorship and onto the screen is just mind-boggling; it makes most other shows seem rather tame. The episode “Fake Dad” has always been a favorite of mine because watching Ren forced into a father role is just darn funny, and Kowalski is a hilarious character to begin with. Fun fact – I often call my best friend Kowalski due to his sheer size and grumpy nature…” – Florian Bertmer
The pin set features Ren Höek, Crocostimpy, Kowalski and Powdered Toast Man all designed by Bertmer as well. Each is $10 or you can get the set for $35.
