Ahhhhh…. fall is in the air. Fresh apple cider, leaves are changing color and brisk temperatures signal a new season and Dark Hall Mansion is wasting NO time embracing the magic of Charlie Brown and the holiday classic, “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.” Today they are revealing 2 new prints by Shaunna Peterson and Naoshi. Both artists have delivered their own personal take on the Peanuts gang and they both take us back to our youth. Here is the official announcement.
Dark Hall Mansion, is most pleased to celebrate the arrival of this year’s holidays with the inimitable Charles M. Schulz 1966 masterpiece, “IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN,” and our new officially licensed limited edition prints by artists Shaunna Peterson and NAOSHI, all available Wednesday, October 4th at 12:30 PM-PST!
Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide LLC, will release Shaunna Peterson’s beautifully hued candy colored Halloween treat in a piece that echoes Disneyland’s legendary Haunted Mansion stretch portraits, a print deliberately structured so the eye begins at the top to coincide with the film’s opening then flows left and right capturing the arc of Schulz’s unforgettable moments and evoking fond memories that awaken the child in us all. Shaunna’s lovely original was hand painted and lovingly captures this timeless classic while paying close attention to the masterful color palette that so informs the original film’s aesthetic.
We’re also pleased to share artist NAOSHI’s slightly kawaii Halloween take on the Schulz classic. The artist utilizes shiny colorful sand, called Sunae in Japan (please see the closeup pics!) as part of her artistic process in creating an original from which our very select limited edition NAOSHI prints are then produced.
Look carefully and you’ll not only see the celebration of one quite unforgettable Halloween night but charming touches such as NAOSHI flavored pumpkins that watch over an ever faithful Linus, a rather surreal evening dance between Pigpen and friends, and a very sweet Halloween Snoopy that rains down trick or treat goodies, though good ole’ Charlie Brown might still get a rock or two. You might also catch a little ’60s throwback Halloween decoration witch flying through NAOSHI’s Variant sky colorway edition.
Our “IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN” limited edition prints go on sale Wednesday, October 4th, on DHM’s dedicated STORE PAGE at 12:30 PM-PST!
All editions are officially licensed by Peanuts Worldwide, strictly limited, giclee printed and hand numbered.
