Exclusive: Tom Whalen Poster for Game Show THE CHASE

     January 24, 2014


I’m a big fan of Tom Whalen’s work.   Over the past few years, we’ve featured his artwork a number of times and he always has an original and unique take on the subject he’s portraying.   So when we were asked if we wanted to premiere his new screen printed  poster for The Chase (airing on the Game Show Network), the answer was an immediate yes.  As you can see on the poster, the print features Mark Labbett and Brooke Burns from the set of the show and we’ve been told it’s limited to 100 copies with 25 variants using alternate colors.  Now here’s the best part:  I’m not exactly sure when, but sometime in the near future we’re going to be giving away a few of the limited posters.  I’ll post the info on the giveaway on Twitter first.

Hit the jump to check out the poster and let me know what you think about the art in the comments. You can catch The Chase on GSN Tuesdays at 8pm ET/PT, with the season finale set to air February 4th.

Here’s the poster.  For more on the show:  Official website, Facebook and Twitter

The Chase: You can run, but you cannot hide, The Beast is always coming after you. In THE CHASE, a team of three contestants attempts to amass as much money as possible by answering quick-fire questions in a 60-second round.  The money earned will go towards a team bank.  Why the urgency?  Because The Beast is always lurking, ready to pounce. The Beast – quite simply — is a quiz genius.  The job of this intimidating presence is to catch each contestant by answering more questions than his opponents to ensure they are not able to bank their money.  It’s a role he executes with ruthless efficiency.  In the final round, the teammates who have survived the initial chase collectively play against The Beast in an epic David vs. Goliath battle for the entire amount that they have banked.
