DescriptionCreepshow by Joann Daley (Warner Bros., 1982). Fine. Signed Original Pre-Production Mixed Media Poster Artwork on Paper (15" X 20").
It's been almost two decades since Heritage last had the opportunity to offer this fantastically gruesome illustration by Joann Daley, a high-ranking favorite piece among fans of the artist. As a preliminary image, the signed painting offered here comes from one of the last steps in the poster creation process before it receives agency enhancement and other finalizations. Daley is among the very few credited female artists in the movie poster industry and perhaps the only woman known primarily for her work in the horror genre. Other titles that bear Daley's ghoulish artwork include horror flicks like Friday the 13th, Scanners, Video of the Dead, Popcorn, and The Initiation, just to name a few. Rich in color and highly detailed, the illustration has such signs of handing in the borders as slight creases, faint smudges, and a paper lift to the top left, although these may be from the production process. The interior has light creases and the beginning of cracking in some of the airbrushed background. There has been skilled restoration to three approximately 4" tears in the image that join together in the ticket-taker's skeletal hand. However, the tears are now almost imperceptible and the painting displays very well.
Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
