SCOOBY FOR SALE!Apologies to anyone who has asked for a Scooby over the last year, for not offering this to you directly … I have so many convos about prints, I can’t remember who asked for which one. BUT I’ll have one signed, unnumbered Scooby proof for sale tomorrow (5/27) at 4pm Eastern in my Etsy shop. It belonged to a friend and she hadn’t framed it yet, so she asked if she could trade for a bunch of my new mini prints as she said she’d rather Scooby go to a home that really wanted that specific subject. (She initially grabbed it just ‘cause she thought is was “cute”.) :)Will ship out within a week. Thanks!

"KINGS OF CULT: AN ART TRIBUTE TO ROGER CORMAN AND JOE DANTE!"

Here’s my full poster for the Roger Corman/Joe Dante show at Hero Complex Gallery on the 24th. I am a HUGE fan of both of these guys (Corman’s X: THE MAN WITH THE X-RAY EYES was the first movie I ever bought as a kid … I’d never heard of it before, but I liked the creepy box art), so I’m especially honored to get to do the show poster.

After watching a bunch of Trailers From Hell segments, I almost immediately decided I wanted to design it as a role-reversal twist on midcentury monster-movie posters … with Joe & Roger as the menacing characters and their creature creations running away in horror. Adam at Hero Complex then had the BRILLIANT idea to make Joe & Roger ONE looming figure instead of two, and the rest of it then fell into place.

The gallery wanted a mix of vignettes (for example, the dad & son from Gremlins) so I ended up altering my idea of the running-away-in-terror concept to just a mini universe with lots of things happening from both of their films. Rather then make Dante & Corman scary, then, I made Joe happy to build and play with his creations and Roger all cool and aloof which I in my mind imagine he is. :)

How many references can you name??

The show opens May 24th at Hero Complex Gallery in LA, and the night before there will be a double-bill screening at the New Beverly of Dante’s MATINEE and Corman’s MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH. Both fine gentlemen will be in attendance both nights!

Thanks to Trailers from Hell and Hero Complex for the fun opportunity to do this poster!
