It's been our pleasure to share the artwork of Gary "Ghoulish" Pullin with Crypt Teaze readers over the past few years, and last year we completely adored the publication of Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin, a retrospective book containing some of the greatest works of horror ever created and featuring writing by April Snellings. To celebrate the book's one-year anniversary, 1984 Publishing is releasing a 2nd edition of the book on May 7th, Daily Dead exclusively reported this morning.
Two editions are available for purchase, Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin 2nd edition with the Friday the 13th Part 3 cover is limited to 1,000 copies, as well as "The Prowler Edition" featuring an 8x10 3-D print of The Prowler with branded glasses!
"The Prowler Edition" can be pre-ordered exclusively at 1984Publishing.com. 100 will be available online, and another 100 allocated for upcoming appearances by Gary.
Check out more details below, along with a look at both versions of the 2nd edition.
"For more than ten years artist Gary Pullin has been taking art galleries, movie theater walls, and social media by storm with his fresh, inventive takes on film, music, and television properties. Equal parts nightmare and nostalgia, his instantly recognizable style always strikes a chord with fans, and his coveted and acclaimed pieces sell out in lightning speed.
A go-to artist for official film artwork, concert merchandise, LP packaging, and endless other pieces of pop culture ephemera, Pullin has put pencil to paper for film posters such as Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, The Big Lebowski, Vertigo, and The Babadook, soundtracks including Creepshow, Scream, Christine, and Tales from the Crypt, and concert merch for the likes of Jack White, Alice Cooper, and Misfits.
Featuring hundreds of full-color illustrations, lavish cover galleries, and never-before-seen concept and process shots, Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin is both a celebration of one artist's remarkable career and an indispensable snapshot of the thriving world of genre art. Go behind the scenes with Gary, let your jaw drop at his brilliant, long out of print artwork, and get ghoulishly inspired by an unforgettable pop artist."
