Dark Hall Mansion is a labor of love. They are passionate about art, about the work of print and poster artists present and past, known and not so known, here and abroad. They are committed to bringing their skills to the forefront on projects that are both compelling and exciting, bridging their studios and creations directly with your walls or secreted collections. Now they are proud to release the officially licensed Peanuts prints for “It’s the great pumpkin Charlie Brown!” by artist Michael De Pippo.
Artist Michael De Pippo, drawing on his use of negative space and minimalist tones, has rendered two completely different and evocative prints for this year’s release. The Standard has Charlie in his full Halloween costumed glory reflecting on one of THE most quoted and classic lines of our shared childhood history, “I got a rock.” A line promptly transporting most of us back to that special moment when kitchens went quiet, all stopped, and 8PM meant everyone planted themselves before their TVs to catch CBS’ airing of the ‘Great Pumpkin’ or risk having to wait till the following year to see it! All with appropriate Dolly Madison ads thrown in for good measure!!
And along that vibe, see Michael’s dynamic Variant print, rendered in a format that immediately recalls those beloved classic TV Guide ads that signaled to every kid that something THEY waned to see was just round the bend.
