    John Carpenter’s The Thing


    “Somebody in this camp ain’t what he appears to be. Right now that may be one or two of us. By spring, it could be all of us”

    Paul Shipper has produced an incredible piece of movie related artwork, the front cover art for Neca Toys Ultimate MacReady” action figure released in 2021 for John Carpenter’s “The Thing”. With flamethrower in hand, Kurt Russell stands ready and is surrounded by a bright white light, paying homage to Drew Struzan’s iconic US one-sheet artwork. The background explores the whole mid to light blue colour palette that exudes the feeling of cold. This signed, titled and hand-annotated Artist Proof print by Paul Shipper was never available commercially and comes directly from the artist’s personal archive. The quality of the printing is truly outstanding and almost appears to be original painted artwork. It represents a very collectable & highly desirable film related poster from a movie rightly regarded as a classic of the genre.
