    Frankenstein Unbound by Dave Christensen (20th Century Fox, 1990). Very Fine/Near Mint. Signed Original Mixed Media Poster Artwork on Illustration Board (30" X 40") with Certificate of Authenticity.
    A first-time presentation at Heritage, this wonderfully gruesome illustration for Roger Corman's Frankenstein Unbound is not only signed by its creator Dave Christensen, but also comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist as well. Christensen has been a long-time composition designer for several movie and television shows since the late 1980s, including notable titles like Hook, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (for which he also did the final illustrations on the British posters), Driving Miss Daisy, Pan's Labyrinth, and many more. However, among all of these media titles, two of his most famous works can be found on the first edition covers of Steven King's famous novels The Shining and Salem's Lot. Skilled in multiple styles ranging from humorous caricatures, distinct graphic design, and the unnerving realism seen in the startling piece offered in this lot, Christensen is among one of the unsung greats of modern poster design. The artwork is in unusually good shape and shows only some very faint surface scuffs, due in large part to the protective sheet of vellum that has been attached to the verso and wraps around to the front.
