SUPER TRASH!

My latest drawing is a tribute to Sergio Martino's satanic giallo All The Colors of The Dark, starring the painfully gorgeous Edwige Fenech! I wish I had a bit more time to work on this one but it still contains several noteworthy exploitation highlights: anguished portraits that barely resemble the cast, pseudo occult symbols, gratuitous nudity, and a snarling decapitated dog head that doesn't appear in the actual film. The original drawing is 12" x 15" but hopefully you can see some of the loving detail in this low-res scan. I drew this for the Super Trash Film Fest and the original will be on display Friday February 1st through Sunday February 3rd! Prepare yourself for 72 hours of mind-fucking celluloid, vendors, beer, dancing girls, celebrity guests, and an entire exhibit of re-imagined movie poster art! Come for the art, stay for Big Trouble In Little China!

SUPER TRASH

Rumor has it that Fantagraphics Books is planning to publish the ENTIRE collection of re-imagined SUPER TRASH movie posters as a beautiful coffee table book later in the year! I'll keep you posted...
