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.

mondo : finding nemo

here’s “finding nemo”, the fourth and final print that i created for last week’s “nothing’s impossible” disney show at mondo.

an enthusiastic “thank you” goes out to all of the folks who offered kind words and compliments on my work for this show. i feel so lucky to have been a part of what i consider the most impressive gallery show i’ve ever seen.

mondo : the incredibles

as i finish packing my bags for my inaugural trip to austin to attend mondo‘s “nothing’s impossible” disney show, i see that my poster for “the incredibles” was debuted over at wired, which means i can finally show it off.

i had been assigned “the incredibles” three years ago when i was cranking through all things disney for mondo. i was thrilled because it was personal to me; my wife and i had decided to name our “dasch” after a viewing of the movie. unfortunately, my rough draft of the poster never made it to final because of licensing issues and i assumed it was a lost cause. then, when the “nothing’s impossible” event surfaced, i had a second shot at rendering a design for one of my favorite animated films.

though the look of this one takes cues from that rough draft, i’m happy i had to wait a few years to render the final, as i think i did a better job with it this time than i would have back then. so happy to finally have this see the light of day.

anyway, off to catch my flight. see you all in austin!
