doug boehm prints

i love this monster mash set of four prints from pennsylvania artist doug boehm, and not just because it’s halloween today! i think this set would be great in a media room (my media room). these images are prints of his original paintings. doug has a bfa from the tyler school of art, and also has an impressive list of clients including rolling stone, the philadelphia enquirer and seattle weekly. he has been recognized by american illustration and the society of illustrators for his talents. take a peek at his colorful, anthropomorphic, slightly askew creations.

i love his lines and his strong-jawed characters, and feel their anxiety. is it sinister tension or a sad doomsday loss of control? i can’t tell.

i still think i like that mummy the best.

see his fantastic portfolio on his website, and purchase his prints at thumbtack press!
