The Irresistible Force Meeting The Immovable Object screen print

18x24"
6 color screen print
edition of 100 
As I've mentioned before, professional wrestling was a HUGE part of my childhood. I was at just the right age during its peak in the 1980's and it simply dominated my world for several years. Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania III was likely the biggest and most hyped match of that era and I wanted to pay tribute to those memories. This print not only depicts the obvious adversaries, but there are also a few things that might only be recognizable to the hardcore fan: Bob Uecker was the guest ring announcer for the bout, Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse "The Body" called the match, & Bobby Heenan was Andre's manager. The broken necklace represents how this rivalry began (with Andre ripping off Hogan's necklace on Piper's Pit and challenging him at Wrestlemania). They were friends at the time...it was a big deal...trust me. Also the 3 icons illustrate Hogan's creedo of "training, prayers, and vitamins". Sex tapes and reality shows came later. Obviously Hogan ultimately won the match (as he never lost in those days) by bodyslamming the 520 lb. Giant and following with his patented atomic leg drop. It was one of those "never forget where you were when it happened" kind of moments and I'll never forget the excitement.

This limited edition screen print is now available for $40 here. I also have a very limited edition of navy blue variants for $50....brother!

The Greatest Gift now available!!!

"The Greatest Gift"
18x24"
A Christmas Story is not only the ultimate Christmas classic, I'm prepared to declare it one of my favorite films of all time. It's a simple tale with many rich layers and comedic hard truths about childhood. Although I didn't grow up in the time period, it paints such a vivid picture that it somehow seems familiar. Plus I've always been fascinated with the build up to Christmas. This film is just genuine.

Long before the 24 hour TBS explosion I made certain I watched it every year without exception. Now I watch it 4-5 times in a row in a debatably unhealthy manner. Simply put, no film is capable of making me feel like a kid more than A Christmas Story, and I like feeling like a kid...there's no mortgage or mouth sores.

This was indeed a passion project that I very much enjoyed working on. The only downside is I had to design it (and therefore watch the film several times) in the midst of my ritualistic horror film binge of October...that was frickin' weird! The Shining, Halloween III, A Christmas Story. Poltergeist, Dawn of the Dead, A Christmas Story. Honestly I'm not sure if I've recovered from such unnatural juxtapositions. Regardless, I am quite proud of how this turned out and I wish every project could be as fulfilling.

This print (and a metallic red variant) are available for $40 & $50 here . There are 200 regular edition and 100 variants. There's a 2 variant limit per order.

As Fall Tours wrap up I'd like to give away two Couch Tour Fall Variants. To enter, go to my studio facebook page, comment on the post that begins with "POSTER GIVEAWAY" with a photo of your couch tour setup AND share that post. The setup that most closely resembles the poster will win one and I'll do a random drawing for the other. So if you're unable to make it to your Halloween show of choice, here's your chance at a consolation prize! US residents only. The contest ends on Nov. 5th and I'll announce the winners on fb on the 6th.

Also there are still a few of these posters available here.
