A dude I know from the poster-collecting circle, is having an auction of some of his prints to save up some quick cash … one of my long-sold-out TWILIGHT ZONE prints is up for grabs here if anyone here was looking for one. Looks like it’s #33.

Here’s my piece for the official THE WALKING DEAD show at LA’s Hero Complex Gallery tonight! It’s inspired by one of my favorite scenes in the series … from the episode in season 1 fittingly titled “Guts”. It’s a full-size print this time - 18x24! - 2-color screen print on awesome red paper. If you can’t make it to the show, any prints left will be up for sale on the gallery’s site tomorrow.
(FYI, the copyright line at the top is not part of the actual print - just a requirement for our online pics - however the AMC logo and @2013 AMC at the bottom are printed)

Show runs through October 26th

And don’t forget to tune in Sunday night, October 13th, for the premiere of THE WALKING DEAD season 4 on AMC at 9/8c! OMG so excited!!!
Very excited to have CRAZY 4 CULT back in NYC again!!! (Please open a permanent location!)
Especially excited to get to release my first holiday-themed* print, since it’ll allow me to mash-up my two different design businesses. And my two favorite things: movies and Christmas. :)
*BTW, no … it’s not specifically a holiday-themed show. :)
Tiny teaser for my piece in next week’s “Say Hi to the Bad Guy” show at Gallery 1988. It’s #4 in my glow-in-the-dark “Spoilers” series. Full reveal next week!
The next show I’m excited to be a part of! (Such a HUGE fan of the show.) I’ll have screenprints that are a little different than what I’ve been doing lately. Not like my cartoony stuff. More like my Bond series maybe. Maybe?
Here’s the event page on Facebook.
My SHAUN OF THE DEAD print at the Edgar Wright opening at Gallery 1988 on Tuesday — photos courtesy of Jason Liwag (pictured). I’d been looking forward to going out to LA for this show, but unfortunately wasn’t well enough to travel, so fellow artist Jason Liwag — my wall buddy, yet again! — very sweetly had Edgar, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost sign a copy of my SHAUN glow-in-the-dark print for me. I’ve never really been into autographs — my friends used to throw a fit when I wouldn’t get band ‘graphs back in my interviewing days — but I find this a very good excuse to lift my long-time embargo. Not pictured was Nick Frost — who also kindly signed my print — which is sorta good, because I’ve also had a long-time crush on Mr. Frost and a pic might’ve been too much for me. :)
In related news, popped over to see my (very conservative) dad, who usually spends 5 hours every night watching FoxNews … only to catch him riotously laughing at HOT FUZZ on BBC America. I don’t think I’ve ever been so proud.
Thanks again to Edgar, Simon & Nick for making such brilliant films … THE WORLD’S END was AMAZING! Everyone please check it out.
In the meantime, you can still get a copy of my glow-in-the-dark SHAUN OF THE DEAD screen print (#3 in my “Spoilers” series) on 1988’s website. Limited edition of 45; gorgeous printing by The Half and Half.
And here is Jason’s awesome piece.
On to the next show …
Here’s my full piece for the Edgar Wright show that opens tomorrow at Gallery 1988 (West) in LA. It’s #3 in my glow-in-the-dark “Spoilers” screen print series. (#1: Twilight Zone and #2: Scooby Doo) I hadn’t planned on showing the glow (spoiler) view online, but I saw a bunch of zombie Ed artwork already in the show so … why not do the whole thing here? I had a lot of fun cramming a lot of little things into this piece. (Although maybe I should have also done a sombrero baby ashtray variant.) :) I’ll post close-up detail pics when the piece goes up for sale online after the show opening.
I want to thank 1988 for letting me participate in this awesome show! I have been a huge Edgar/Simon/Nick fan since the very first episode of SPACED that I was lucky enough to catch on first-run back when I lived in London (what up, Crouch End??) These three can do no wrong in my book. I thought about doing a SPACED print, since that’s what got me hooked, but in the end, I went with SHAUN OF THE DEAD, which is already a classic, and deservedly so. I could go on and on about all the reasons why, but I’ll just point out one of my favorite things about this film (and about Wright’s directing style in general): is the clever use of individual elements (like editing, etc.) to add more layers to the story.
Back in film school, we had a class on narrative sound in film. (For example: The entirety of M. HULOT’S HOLIDAY. Seriously, do yourself a favor and check it out.) That was before SHAUN was released, but I hope for that class’s sake, that they’ve added this film to the syllabus. From the zombie “singing” along to “White Lines”, to Ed advancing the film after the girl zombie gets a hole in her gut (I laugh like a fool every time I see this bit), to the very last line which is tied for surprise-ending sound-effect awesomeness with Boo’s “Kitty!” at the end of MONSTERS INC.
So thank you, fellas, for making so much awesomeness, and thank you also to everyone who comes out to the show!
Opening: Aug 20th, 7-10
