Dan May Steve Thomas and Mike DuBois Peanuts Valentine's Day Print Releases

Dark Hall Mansion under license from Peanuts Worldwide LLC, brings a very special treat to all this Valentine's Day, and with varied choices at that, the official Peanuts limited edition print releases by artists Dan May, Steve Thomas and Mike DuBois, all available this Friday, February 3rd at 12:30 PM-PST!!

Artist Dan May's powerful and emotionally charged piece struck us deeply on seeing his completed painting, indeed one of the most touching and emotive Peanuts pieces we've ever been privileged to publish. It addresses with honesty the inevitable issue that Valentine's Day is as much about unrequited love and the challenges of this day as it is about love itself. Dan's "FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS THERE" finds Snoopy pensive, hesitant, clearly something has gone wrong, his very environment reflecting this, yet Dan specifically noted to us how he wanted his piece to be an uplifting message of love, and just as Woodstock's valentine butterfly rises to remind his friend that, come what may, friends are indeed always there for one another, we too are reminded to have faith in love in its countless incarnations. Dan's evening Variant similarly conveys this message with a pastel Valentine's moon and wishing star underscoring things can indeed better.

Artist Steve Thomas' "HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, CHARLIE BROWN" brings us a touching and elegant rendering that finds Snoopy and Woodstock happily preparing valentines for all as Charlie Brown approaches his beloved "little red-haired girl." Strikingly composed, the 'will she or won't she' moment is pure Schulz in tone and one whose combined hesitance and hopefulness we can all relate to. Most fun is that Steve's two different prints allow fans to choose their own ending, especially as Steve's Variant pink edition offers up a charming moment many long for via a distinctly varied silhouette and which might just prove that special valentine.

Artist Mike DuBois' "LOVE FOREVER" is pure joy! An absolute celebration of love itself, its happiness not confined to Valentine's Day but love to bask in and delight always. Mike's detail work is always a visual treat, his tree of love raining hearts a sight to see, but the sheer joy with which Woodstock gathers hearts while in flight as they gently tumble, then cascades those same hearts down upon his closest friend who ecstatically celebrates via his classic happy dance, this is a true celebration of love, life and its multitude of faces. Mike's Variant pink edition is pure eye candy, while his insane foil editions, which are usually his most popular with our buyers and so quickest to sell, are printed and offered via two different foil paper substrates which stunningly compliment his artwork for "LOVE FOREVER." Monitor images do not properly showcase Mike's foil editions, note for example the ground covering which allows the foil substrate to shine through along with other areas of his editions.

FREE Valentine's gift!! Every Mike DuBois print comes with a free random mini-Valentine's DuBois print of Snoopy or Woodstock that makes for a special Valentine treat to give away! :) A FREE mini-print accompanies each DuBois print so, YES, 2 DuBois prints means 2 DuBois smalls, 3 DuBois prints, 3 DuBois smalls, etc.
