This print was created for Gallery 1988's Crazy 4 Cult, an annual exhibition focused on works of art inspired by fan favorite cult cinema.
I chose to focus on a favorite from my youth, "Tales From The Crypt Presents: Demon Knight". The print was designed to resemble the first page of a classic "Crypt of Terror" comic, complete with Crypt Keeper narration.
This print was a private commission for the film "Tremors" starring the great Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward.
It would be hard to make a print that didn't feature the Graboid, so I ran with that, allowing the landscape of Perfection to blend seamlessly with the oversized worm.
This print was produced for Hero Complex Gallery and Stephen King's charity The Haven Foundation.
Tasked with creating a print for a King property is tough as there are so many iconic films and books to draw from. I settled on "Creepshow" as I also wanted to pay tribute to Bernie Wrightson, who adapted the "Creepshow" comic and was a huge influence on me as an artist.
American Horror Story
21st Century Fox commissioned this print for "American Horror Story: Murder House" to celebrate the premiere of the 5th season of the show. It was released in conjunction with Hero Complex Gallery.
Murder House was by far my favorite season of the show and I wanted to capture the creepiness of the man in the rubber suit. The red being such a pronounced color throughout the season helped to emphasize the range present just behind the door of the Murder House.
The Cabin In The Woods
This print for "Cabin In The Woods" was a commission from a private poster collective.
I was trying to capture the "banality of evil" as the middle management men watch the teenagers on-screen with little interest, while at the same time creating an ominous mood with color and value. Hidden in the print are little nods towards the wide array of monsters, as well as the likelihood of survival for our main characters.
This was my first illustration for Gallery 1988's Crazy for Cult.
I love Critters, especially the zaniness of the sequel, and couldn't think of a cuter bunch of monsters to draw. Most are your standard Crite, but hiding in the corner is the bald shotgun blasted baddy from Critters 2.
Friday the 13th
24" x 36" 6 color screen print. Created for private commission group.
The first Friday is a classic of the slasher genre. While not as exciting as Friday IV, mostly because of its lack of Jason, it is still an expertly crafted horror film. Since Jason is not the masked killer in the first, I decided to pay homage to the great slasher posters of the past, and only include a knife wielding hand. This also kept me from giving away the true identity of the killer.
