dark hall mansion : the year without a santa claus


here’s my latest for dark hall mansion celebrating the 1974 animated classic, “the year without a santa claus”.

now that halloween is in the rear view mirror, it’s time to put the rankin/bass christmas specials on a continuous loop for the next 2 months. one of my favorites of that group is “the year without a santa claus”, highlighted is the fantastically realized miser brothers having a weather-related sing off, each extolling their own micro climate. great stuff.

these prints will release from dark hall mansion on thursday, november 13 sometime between 9:30am – 12pm PST.

galerie f : the shining

produced through galerie f in association with chicago’s historic logan theater, here’s my new print for “the shining”.

i’ve done a few shining-inspired pieces in the past and my intent with this one was to avoid all of the “usual suspects”, i.e. maze, twins, ax, typewriter, etc.

this time, i opted to show a quiet exterior shot of the overlook hotel with an ominous snow just starting to fall. as your eye draws down from the main image to the type, rows of bodies buried below the surface of the mountain become visible, hinting at the terror housed in the hotel. i rendered everything in geometric angles, reminiscent of the indian motifs that are scattered throughout the hotel.

the poster will be released through the galerie f website at a random time on monday, october 27.

mondo : gotham by gaslight

here’s a look at my “gotham by gaslight” print for mondo‘s “batman 75” gallery event.

i’ve long been a fan of DC’s “elseworlds” stories wherein classic characters and situations are slightly tweaked and twisted outside of continuity to produce interesting results. In the case of “gotham by gaslight” (the progenitor of the elseworlds concept), the question “what if batman existed in 1889?” is answered. A brilliantly reserved tale of a victorian gotham comes to life through the writing of brian augustyn and the graphic artwork of one of my favorite illustrators, mike mignola. when asked to be a part mondo’s batman gallery show, i couldn’t pass up the chance to pay homage to one of my all-time favorite dark knight stories.

mondo : the iron giant

the amazing opportunity to illustrate a poster for one of my (and my son’s) favorite animated films, “the iron giant” was made even cooler when brad bird, the film’s director, saw it and dug it.

the print went on sale at last weekend’s mondo con in austin, TX.
