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.
