gallery 1988 : ghostbusters : confectionery kaiju

i had the privilege of creating a limited edition screenprint to celebrate the 30th(!) anniversary of ghostbusters.

illustrating the kaiju-like entrance of the stay puft marshmallow man, i chose to treat the poster as an japanese lobby card, complete with terrified onlookers and apropos typography.

quantities of the poster will be released at each of the four stops (new york, chicago, LA, SDCC) on gallery 1988‘s traveling art show, which, in addition to showcasing 13 limited edition prints, will feature tons of original art as well as limited edition apparel. it’s going to be be nuts. full details here.

oh, and the site of the first stop on the tour is near the famous firehouse from the film. so, there’s that.

“i ain’t afraid of no ghosts!”

commission : 30th birthday

the wife of one of the maniacs who collect my work reached out to me late last year in hopes of hiring me to do a private commission for his 30th birthday. she gave me a list of all of his favorite movies/video games/music/places he’d traveled and let me pick from those what i thought would make an interesting image. knowing “legend of zelda” was his favorite video game, i chose to make link the centerpiece and distill the other information into icons that would cascade around him.

teefury : back to the future past

paying homage to the time-traveling antics of everyone’s favorite hairy canadian short-stack, i’m pleased to announce that my new “back to the future past” design is available today (march 26) at teefury!

for those who might be unfamiliar, teefury is the trendsetter in pop culture mash-up t-shirts. they offer a fresh design every day and make it available for a 24 hour period. after that, it’s gone!

so what’re ya waiting for? get yourself over to teefury before 11:59 PM EST on march 26 and check it out!

as always, thanks for the support!

mondo : frozen

mondo provided me the opportunity to create a poster for animated phenomenon “frozen”.

when i received the assignment, i hadn’t seen it yet, so i got to take the family to the theater on a “poster research” trip. hands down, that’s one of the coolest parts of doing what i do.

target : playing card giftcard

i’m honored to have once again worked with the great creative team at target, this time to produce a playing-card-themed giftcard.

the card has just recently reached my neck of the woods and my son is having a blast regularly scouring the racks to find it. pretty cool.

strongstuff : vector selfie

my work was spotlighted in a nifty 10-page spread in the december 2013 issue of the philly burbs arts/entertainment mag, main line today.

instead of running a photo with the story, the art director suggested i create an illustrated “selfie”. it turned out to be a a cool opportunity to vectorize myself.

if you can’t track down a hard copy of the issue, here’s a link to the online edition of the story.
