Brand new print for Steel City Secret Cinema, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Evil Dead!!
This wretched GREMLINS inspired painting was done for Steel City Secret Cinema II 80s edition here in Pittsburgh. It will be shown at Most Wanted Fine Art’s “Stuff and Such” gallery starting May 3rd. There are Prints available for $18 Bucks, so stop by and get all nostalgic and stuff!
Prints will be available online soon!
Thanks to everyone that came out to Steel City Secret Cinema last night in Dormont. It was kinda like Alamo Drafthouse meets Gallery 1988. For those of you that couldn’t make it, here is the painting that I had showing. The theme for the show was any movie made in Pittsburgh. I couldn’t decide between Robocop and Day of the dead, and this is the result. It’s titled “RoboCorpse” or “When Murphy met Bub”. It hails as the grossest painting I’ve ever done. It just might be showing at House of The Dead in Lawrenceville so keep yer eyes peeled, son.

So here’s the latest movie poster design. I said Day of the Dead would be next but I just had to do Pet Sematary. This movie has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. I always liked Victor Pascow (the zombie/phantom dead guy). Most zombies or ghosts or whatever just want to eat your brains or to scare your pants off, but Victor just wants to give sound advice. Do not go to the place where the Dead Walk!
So I’ve been wanting to do some poster design for a while now. I’ve done a couple posters for people in the past, but lately I wanted to do something just for kicks. I watched Bad Taste the other day and was inspired to create a poster worthy of such a gross-out film. This movie is notoriously labeled as one of the worst movies ever made, which makes it all the more enjoyable. If you’ve never heard of it, check IMDB for a summary.
So here’s the design. I’ve been screen printing for a few years now and wanted to design it as if it were gonna be printed that way. No halftones, just nice solid colors. I did add a distressed look to it just to give it that old dusty feel. I’m gonna do some more soon, I was thinking Day of the Dead. Don’t worry – more artworks coming soon too!
