Dark Hall Mansion has been delivering some highly desirable, officially licensed “Twilight Zone“ art and today we get our first look at the next offering and it too is by one of our favorite artists. This time out they have given the creative reins to Dave Perillo and he has taken a brilliant approach to one of our favorite Twilight Zone episodes, 1961’s “Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up.”
In conjunction with its ongoing officially licensed “The Twilight Zone” subscription series, Dark Hall Mansion is very pleased to reveal our next guest-artist TZ release: “WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP,” by leading contemporary artist, Dave Perillo. A charming and wacky piece that riffs in 12″ x 12″ vintage LP record cover format on a terrific and classic “Twilight Zone” episode, we think you’ll agree Dave’s artwork perfectly suits the somewhat manic quality of this humorous yet pensive episode.
Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, will release Dave Perillo’s new “WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP” limited edition prints next Tuesday, June 30th, 2015.
Artist Dave Perillo brings to bear the influence of one of his, and DHM’s, favorite artists, the enormously influential, Jim Flora. Flora’s unique and highly stylized jazz and pop record cover artwork of the ’40s and ’50s exploded with color and hyper-stylization influencing generations of illustrators in all fields, and Dave Perillo has done him justice! Formatted to appear as the vintage record cover you might always have wanted but not known existed, his 12″ x 12″ “WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP” has all the earmarks of a classic jazz inflected cover from the ’50s while creatively rendering this classic TZ episode’s entire story arc and twist ending in one dynamic piece.
Dave’s standard edition hits all the right notes with its vintage LP color palette, one that not only tells the tale but brings forth some very special record cover artwork, from a unique locale indeed-one of sight, sound and mind, and one from where you might just see future Twilight Zone record cover offerings emanate from. To compliment, Dave’s Variant edition pops right off the cover with a color explosion that feels at once slightly frenetic and all cool jazz. There’s also two select wood editions based on the Standard and Variant colorways.
“WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP” Standard edition of 280: $35
“WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP” Wood edition of 10 (based on Standard edition colorway) $95
