We announced earlier this month that we had a few special surprises left in our month long Halloween celebration. Well, I’m excited to reveal that we’ve partnered with artists Glen Brogan (aka Albino Raven) and Zach Bellissimo for a pair of hauntingly awesome prints that celebrate two of the greatest hallmarks of this spooky season: THE HALLOWEEN TREE and MAD MONSTER PARTY.
Many of you may be familiar with Brogan’s pop culture-themed illustrations which have appeared in galleries all across the country, most recently his own solo show at Gallery 1988. When it came to depicting the iconic October tale penned by Ray Bradbury, Brogan took the approach of endowing his piece with the look a feel of a vintage Halloween card. As an added bonus, he used the titular tree to include some familiar faces from other Halloween shows or movies.
Bellissimo has served as Storyboard artist at Warner Bros. as well as a Character Designer for Adult Swim on shows like Rick & Morty. With a mind for monsters, especially the Universal Studios films, Bellissimo’s style was perfect for re-capturing the spirit behind Jack Davis’ original character designs on one of Rankin/Bass’ most memorable specials. Better still, the entire gang of goofy miscreants, misanthropes and monsters are all here.
Both pieces will be available for purchase in our online shop next Thursday, October 16th.
