About this project

"These are the armies of the night. They are 100,000 strong. They outnumber the cops five to one. They could run New York City."

New Rule collective presents, Come Out To Play, an illustrated tribute to 1979 cult movie classic, The Warriors! The heroic tale of the rag-tag outfit from Coney Island, battling their way through 27 miles of enemy territory to reach home.

Focusing on the array of street gangs that the Warriors must encounter, and fend off on their desperate journey back to Coney, we have assembled 24 reckless artists to take you on an illustrative adventure into New York's toughest and most feared gangs!

From The Hi-Hats, The Baseball Furies, The Electric Eliminators to The Turnbull AC’s, each participant has been assigned their own personal gang, from which to create their interpretation.

THE BOOK

The book will be A5 in size, perfect bound and will contain 42 pages of full colour illustrations. Every piece of artwork included in the book is a new design, created specially for this project. Above is a selection of full and cropped pieces from the book, to give a preview of the work included. We don't want to give the whole selection away just yet, and have saved some of the best to only be shown in the book and show.

FIRST 100 ltd edition

The first run of 100 books we are printing will be a limited edition. Each will be hand numbered and include a cover design only to be used on the initial run. If we surpass the first 100, an alternative cover will be used, but all of the content will be exactly the same.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

PRINTS

We will be printing and selling various art prints of the work included in the project, and have decided to opt for the method of Giclee printingGiclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high end archival quality paper to create prints of superior quality, light fastness and stability.

Put simply, it is the highest quality digital printing method, on the highest quality paper, and it will not fade or alter in colour over time.

EXHIBITION

The culmination of this project is a week-long, exhibition in the Brick Lane area of East London. Running from April 11 - April 17th at 5th Base gallery, 23 Heneage street, E1 7LJ. Free to all!

The exhibition will be a platform to display the work included in the book, along with additional physical work designed by the artists. Ranging from original paintings, sculptures, screen prints, t-shirts and taxidermy, the show gives the opportunity for artists to create unique pieces of work, and for the public to come and experience the whole collection in a curated environment.

Prints and physical work will be for sale exclusively at the show at affordable prices and in limited numbers.

Smallprint

This is, of course, a fan-made project which has no affiliation with anything that would make it "official." with regards to the original movie The Warriors. All work is created as a tribute to a much loved cult classic.

Any extra funds that surpass the goal will go towards the exhibition costs, further runs of the book, and future New Rule projects.
