Jarrod Fairclough – We love a good piece of artwork, and the good folk at Dark Mansion are releasing a fantastic print by Tom Whalen of our favorite Sesame Street characters!
Read their statement below:
Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Sesame Workshop, is so very pleased to take fans back to a simpler time, or perhaps allow them to share their own memories with family, friends and loved ones, but no matter which, there’s always love for “Sesame Street” and its inimitable classic characters. Artist Tom Whalen gathers all the old friends, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, the Count, Elmo and more, on the friendliest Street, the street and neighborhood where everyone is welcome! Tom’s limited edition screen print is a 14-color multi-monster explosion of joy with old friends and episode memories alike; Ernie’s rubber ducky, Bert’s bottle caps, Oscar’s little friend Slimey, Mr. Snuffleupagus, Super Grover in flight, Elmo and best friend Dorothy, the Count, well, counting, they’re all here! Anchored by three of the most unforgettable and beloved friends that have helped shaped lives for the better, brought smiles to millions of children worldwide and helped raise generation after generation, where would we be if not for one wonderfully cranky Oscar the Grouch, the friendliest Big Bird who reminds us all that kindness matters in this world and, of course, the irrepressible and irresistible charm of the one and only cookie crazed Cookie Monster! A legacy quite unlike any other, “Sesame Street” and its characters are a gift to us all, a gift to humankind itself.
The print is available beginning 12:30pm PST on Friday 27th at Dark Mansion’s website, and will come in multiple variants. Pieces are limited, so make sure you buy up quick!
