Woodstock's Song of Love Marq Spusta Print Release From Dark Hall Mansion

Dark Hall Mansion is extremely pleased to welcome back artist, Marq Spusta, in launching DHM's new 'Peanuts Moments' limited edition print series. So wonderful to lead off with Marq's quiet, lovely, "Woodstock's Song of Love" limited editions which are available FRI, February 12th!

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide LLC, will release Marq Spusta's gorgeously detailed editions that find two old friends in a gently reflective moment that at once honors Charles M. Schulz's timeless legacy while still all Marq Spusta in flavor. Marq's piece is at once evocative, harkening to the artist's personal concerns, while hinting at Woodstock's origins, particularly since, YES, Charles M. Schulz did indeed name Snoopy's favorite 'little birdie' (nod to Vince Guaraldi) for the epic 1969 music festival-and know Woodstock was voiced by none other than legendary Peanuts director Bill Melendez. By the way, so was Snoopy for those that don't know!

DHM is very excited to introduce our new 'PEANUTS MOMENTS' limited edition print series, one that will focus on individual Peanuts characters, and, as the name suggests, truly classic moments from Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts legacy. Within this series invited artists will take on moments that draw inspiration from Peanuts strips, films, and Schulz artwork that has informed Peanuts and delighted fans across decades, all while allowing each artist to individually reflect and make the characters, series, and moments their own. Be it Charlie Brown and Linus' incomparable exchanges on a storied wall, Snoopy on his doghouse, or simply Charlie Brown looking pensively skyward atop his pitching mound on a rainy day, expect our 'PEANUTS MOMENTS' to be something special…and yes, think you can safely expect Marq Spusta to return with some quite special and personal Peanuts contributions to follow on his first in the series.

A few words from Marq on Charles M. Schulz and Peanuts:
"I would be absolutely stumped to compose anything concise that truly expresses my appreciation for what Charles Schulz created with Peanuts. It's an awe-inspiring masterwork when you look at it as a whole-50 years of the dailies, the animated specials, merchandise, and the character's mark on pop culture in general."

"It's a privilege to create these prints for Peanuts and it allows me to really flesh out some wonderful moments with these characters. Charles Schulz was the best at communicating so much in a simple scene and that's what I want to celebrate with my Peanuts prints."
