Earlier this year I took part in a tribute art show to the films of Joe Dante and Roger Corman, titled “The Kings of Cult.” My tribute to Roger Corman was based on his classic “The Pit and the Pendulum” starring the great Vincent Price. Thanks to the stellar promotional efforts of The Hero Complex Gallery, news of my piece found its way to Victoria Price, Vincent’s daughter. She was developing a signature line of wines with the Edgar Allan Poe theme that her father was so famous for with his unforgettable performances. After providing some compositional adjustments and the title, I transformed my original piece into the “Bartolome Red” label. Also in the collection are the artistic talents of Gris Grimly, Abigail Larson and Aaron Lea.

I had the pleasure of meeting fellow exhibitor James Clark at SDCC 2014. He hired me to work up an illustration and design for a banner that showcased his various talents. James requested a frog and ukulele with a turn-of-the-century Victorian feel. The resulting character (above) came about. Be sure to check out his wide array of creative talents HERE.
