Dark Hall Mansion Is Back With More Official Charlie Brown Holiday Prints

Last week we shared some new officially licensed Peanuts prints from Dark Hall Mansion by artists Steve Thomas and Eric Robison.  Today, we are pleased to share MORE Charlie Brown art from three new artists.  Here is DHM’s official announcement on their latest holiday offering.

Dark Hall Mansion Banner

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide LLC, continues its annual Christmas and holiday Peanuts releases with artists Dan May, Mike DuBois, Eduardo Sanabria and their official, limited edition prints for “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “Merry Christmas Charlie Brown.”


(Artist Dan May and family)


Standard 18″ x  24″ edition of 225  $65
Standard 11″ x  14″ edition of 100  $35
Select 18″ x  24″ Canvas Edition of 25  $125
Select 11″ x  14″ Canvas Edition of 25  $75


Artist Dan May’s interpretation of Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 classic, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” is quiet and powerful, a piece subtly addressing troubled times with Charlie Brown removed and elevated from the noise of the world and blur the holidays can become by masking that which is most important.  Dan’s composition instantly struck us in finding Charlie Brown, accompanied by a quietly, emotional Snoopy, not merely reflective but openly longing and prayerful for that which matters most, a loving reminder for us all, particularly during the holidays.


(Artist Mike Dubois in his studio)


Standard 12″ x  12″ edition of 195  $45
Variant (Charlie in lavender) 12″ x  12″ edition of 175  $60
Lava-Standard (Charlie in blue) Printed on Lava Foil edition of 45 $75
Sparkle-Standard (Charlie in blue) Printed on Sparkle Foil edition of 45 $75
Lava-Variant (Charlie in lavender) Printed on Lava Foil edition of 45 $75
Sparkle-Variant (Charlie in lavender) Printed on Sparkle Foil edition of 45 $75


Artist Mike DuBois’ “Merry Christmas Charlie Brown” is a gently sweet counterpoint sharing a warm and at ease Charlie Brown very much at peace and enjoying his world with close friends on that most special of nights.  Mike’s stylistic approach renders his print visually interesting as even his trees seem to lean and reach for the holiest of stars whilst Charlie Brown’s inner peace is similarly reflected in one very content Snoopy.  Mike’s foil editions immediately sold out on our first day of release for his “Evening Celebration” prints and here his Lava and Sparkle editions, both printed on foil substrate, lend an additional and striking dimension to his “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown” prints by heightening the emotion and context of each.  Mike’s editions are screen printed and individually hand signed by the artist.


(Artist Eduardo Sanabria)

Standard (blue) 18″ x  24″ edition of 225  $65
Variant (red and green) 18″ x  24″ edition of 50  $95
Select 18″ x  24″ Canvas (blue) edition of 25  $125
Select 18″ x  24″ Canvas (red and green) edition of 25  $125


Finally, DHM is so very excited to be working with award winning artist, Eduardo Sanabria, whose vibrantly colored work and intensely stylized approach well serves that most classic dance break moment in “A Charlie Brown Christmas” that has the whole Peanuts gang sharing on of the single most famous moments in Peanuts film history.  Eduardo’s body of work and socials following speaks for itself and DHM is looking forward to surprising fans with upcoming collaborations with Eduardo.
