CCD Had It's First Art Show... And It Was A Perfect Way To Kick Off All Horror Week For 2014!!!


Wow... it came fast, and it went just as quick!!! CCD planned it's first ever art show... and boy was it a doozy! Monsters, Maniacs and Mayhem: A Black & White Tribute To The Golden Age of Universal Horror Films saw us pick 15 of the greatest Universal Horror movies of the 30s, 40s, and 50s and ask some of our most artistic friends to do their best rendition of the characters. The result? 14 amazing pieces (one artist, who shall remain nameless CHRIS, did not get his piece done in time) that came out insanely good!!! All the classics are represented, as well as some lesser known characters. We worked with some close friends of the CCD family (Tommy Lombardozzi, Lockheed Lee, and Joey Esq) as well as some new ones (Liza Biggers, Erle Tompkins, and Al Accettura)... but there was one thing that all the artists had in common: All the pieces were AMAZING!!!! We even got a show poster courtesy of Sean 'Create Ink' Hamilton, of the legendary League of Geekz podcast! Best part of the whole night was that 9 out of the 14 original pieces sold!!! An overall successful night, the first of many to come from this new group of artists down with the CCD Fam. Thanks to the Irish Haven, all the artists involved, and all that helped out with this great event. We will have many more art shows to come in the future. Check out all 14 pieces after the jump... prints are available (8x10s for $10 bucks) for those who are interested!

  1. Great night, great pieces. It was so cool working with a bunch of swell, talented people... from the participating artists, to Matt at the Haven, to my man Joe Milazzo whose help we couldn't have done without. Good job, everyone! Glad you got it off the ground, Mike. Let's start planning the next one!
