It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Just in time for fall, the posters I created with Dark Hall Mansion based off the timeless Halloween classic, ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown‘ have finally been announced.

Standard

Variant

GP Variant

DHM explains my concepts better than I could, so here’s what they wrote:

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.”

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. From it’s old school wordmark logo to its stark interpretation of the moment, the moment that, well…

Sally Brown: You blockhead! You kept me up all night waiting for the Great Pumpkin, and all that came was a beagle! I didn’t get a chance to go out for tricks or treats. And it was all your fault! I’ll sue!…”
