Celosia is American illustrator Geirrod van Dyke's take on the Shadow of the Colossus games, showing the climactic moment before Wander slays the Colossus Celosia. This limited edition art print is made under official license from Sony Computer Entertainment Japan.
This art print was first offered as a pre-order item, scheduled to ship at the end of October 2020. Based on the pre-order sales figures we determined the final edition size, and the final printing method: screen printing. Screen printing monochrome artworks allows us to add extra embellishments like subtle satin glows, or small color highlights etcetera that can add a beautiful extra dimension to this particular work (with full color images we find that the giclee technique gives the highest impact result most of the time).
After taking in the pre-orders, we knew the size of the print run - screen printing needs to be done in one go - and worked with Geirrod to find the best possible rendering of his image. Together, we decided on adding a thin layer of gold paint atop the other colours, to embellish the work and to align the print more with the 'golden' atmosphere of the game.
