“You’ll see! Next year at this same time, I’ll find the pumpkin patch that is real sincere and I’ll sit in that pumpkin patch until the Great Pumpkin appears. The Great Pumpkin will appear and I’ll be waiting for him! I’ll be there! I’ll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch… and I’ll see the Great Pumpkin. Just wait and see, Charlie Brown. I’ll see that Great Pumpkin.”
Wait no longer Linus!! Dark Hall Mansion, www.DarkHallMansion.com, is so excited to finally release this year’s Officially licensed Peanuts print for everyone’s favorite Halloween classic, Charles M. Schulz’ “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” On sale next Tuesday, Sept 18, 2012, 9:30 AM PST, so no one ‘gets a rock’ and all have plenty of time to enjoy artist Michael De Pippo’s striking artwork on their walls for the perennial Fall classic that let’s everyone know Halloween and the holidays are now truly on their way!
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.” A line promptly transporting most of us back to that special moment when kitchens went quiet, all stopped, and 8PM meant everyone planted themselves before their TVs to catch CBS’ airing of the ‘Great Pumpkin’ or risk having to wait till the following year to see it! All with appropriate Dolly Madison ads thrown in for good measure!!
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! What a fool I was! I could have had candy apples and gum and cookies and money and all sorts of things. But no! I had to listen to you, you blockhead. What a fool I was. Trick or treats come only once a year, and I missed it by sitting in a pumpkin patch with a blockhead.
YOU OWE ME RESTITUTION!!!
Linus: [to Charlie Brown] You’ve heard of the fury of a woman scorned, haven’t you?
Charlie Brown: Yeah, I guess I have.
Linus: Well, that’s nothing compared to the fury of a woman who has been cheated out of trick-or-treats.

Los Angeles, CA, April 24, 2012
PRNewswire/–Dark Hall Mansion is thrilled to finally unveil a project that has been in development for over one full year: the first officially licensed, limited edition print Folio for The Beatles 1968 cinematic masterpiece, Yellow Submarine.
Dark Hall Mansion has been working closely with Live Nation Merchandise, The Beatles’ North American Licensing Agent, and Apple Corps Ltd. in developing a series of limited edition screen prints by leading contemporary artist, Tom Whalen, all to be offered in select, limited edition and numbered print Folios. Tom Whalen’s stunning artwork for these prints draws directly from The Beatles’ legendary 1968 classic Yellow Submarine and is the first time The Beatles have formally allowed a contemporary artist to reinterpret their classic film’s imagery within an art print format.
Tom Whalen has crafted an extraordinary series of 5 prints for The Beatles official Yellow Submarine Folio that reinterprets Yellow Submarine while staying faithful to its timeless legacy of originality. Each print is individually numbered, 18″ x 24″ in size, and each is lovingly and meticulously screen printed, by hand, with all prints housed within their own Folio protective cases, also designed by artist Tom Whalen and beautifully bearing the film’s classic Yellow Submarine and original 1968 film release date on its respective case cover. An extraordinary set whose select and limited edition run numbers ensures they will be competed for byBeatles collectors and fans worldwide, each Whalen print is a stand alone work of beauty that captures the essence and magic that is Yellow Submarine.
The limited edition Yellow Submarine Folios, each with 5 completely different screen prints per Folio, each print representing a key moment or theme from Yellow Submarine, will be highly collectible as there will be only 797 Standard Folio Editions, 135 Variant Folio Editions (in a varied color way) plus an exclusive edition of 68 Folio Editions, the “Elite ’68,” which will be rendered in yet another completely different color scheme with striking metallic inks and with each individual print within the Elite edition personally signed by artist Tom Whalen.
Yellow Submarine, based upon a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by Beatles songs, including “Eleanor Rigby,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “It’s All Too Much,” and “All You Need Is Love.” When the film debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognised as a landmark achievement, revolutionizing a genre by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques. Inspired by the generation’s new trends in art, the film resides with the dazzling Pop Art styles of the ’60s.
All Yellow Submarine Folios, regardless of edition, are strictly numbered and come with their own official COA (Certificate of Authenticity). These officially licensed Beatles Yellow Submarine Folios will be offered for sale on May 29, 2012 exclusively through Dark Hall Mansion, http://www.DarkHallMansion.com/ via their online store http://www.darkhallmansionstore.com and will coincide with the release of the digitally restored 1968 animated feature film Yellow Submarine. Pricing and availability of The Beatles Yellow Submarine Folio editions will be $300 for the Standard Folio Edition of 5 prints, $450 for the Variant Folio Edition of 5 prints and $675 for the Elite ’68 Folio Edition of 5 prints, with each housed in its custom designed protective case along with its own registered COA (Certificate of Authenticity).

Take a peek at Laurent’s BIO, below, he’s a pretty interesting guy, he’s directed, and cinema buffs, know that on seeing one of Laurent’s pieces for a Belgian film festival
it was personally requested by the family of Jacques Tati for use in a French retrospective of the legendary director’s work in France.
Laurent’s an extraordinary artist, in the many senses of the word, there’s a reason why the German publisher of ARCHIVES voted Laurent amongst the 200 Best Illustrators in the world:
