Dancing Ferret – 20th Anniversary Poster

Dancing Ferret - 20th Anniversary Poster

Dancing Ferret is having a big 20th Anniversary show at The Trocadero, and I was tapped to do the artwork for the event. It was flattering to get to do the piece, and I had a good time doing it. It was a pretty interesting request: Draw a ferret looking rather dapper with two hot goth girls with him. Sounds good to me!

The show features Covenant, Ego Likeness, Carfax Abbey, The Labrynth, The Wandering Cellist, Samantha Diaz. Guest vocalists Rodney Anonymous (The Dead Milkmen), Stacey Campbell (Spider Lillies), Andy Deane (Bella Morte), Jeff Diehm (The Last Dance), Alex Reed (ThouShaltNot) will all be making appearances, too!

Wednesday 13 - Curse The Living T-Shirt

Sometimes, dreams DO come true.

Back in October of 2011, I saw Wednesday 13 was going to play The Troc here in Philadelphia, and I decided to take the initiative to do a gig poster for the show. The show was packed and I had one hell of a good time! Wednesday 13 saw the piece and I wound up printing him out a copy with my contact info.

Fast forward to December of 2012.

I got a message from his management and, long story short, I got commissioned to do a shirt for him! He had a specific idea, and even sent me an original sketch of what layout he wanted. I kept my art incredibly true to it, and I’m glad to hear that he liked the piece, too!

The design is based on Vincent Price’s character Matthew Hopkins in the 1968 film “Witchfinder General”. I actually never got to hear the song, “Curse The Living”, before I drew it, and I’m still dying to get my hands on the new album “The Dixie Dead” so I can. That said, I wound up listening to all his solo work while working on it.

In the end, I’m incredibly proud of this shirt and I had a great time doing it! This was a dream come true, and hopefully I’ll get to work for more people I look up to and admire!

The shirt is being sold on his 2013 West Coast tour, and hopefully will be available for a long, long, long time!

Bride of the Stripping Dead!

Bride of the Stripping Dead Poster
The Admiral Theater in Chicago, IL contacted me about doing a poster for their event, “Bride of the Stripping Dead.” It was a ton of fun to do and the scope was pretty simple: Do a poster of The Bride of the Frankenstein as a stripped with a ton of attitude! I wanted to keep the look of terror everyone was familiar with, but I also wanted to do something kinda nuts.
Over the course of a few weeks, I created a teaser billboard, flyers, posters, newspaper ads, and a T-shirt for their annual Halloween stripping / burlesque event. The billboard was an instant success, resulting in new coverage and a ton of hits on their site! The poster and shirts sold well, and the event was an instant success!
