    Description

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre by Guy Juke (Austin Chronicle, 1985). Original Gouache Cover Art on Canvas Art Board (18" X 24").
    A tradition that continues to this day, the Austin Chronicle newspaper delights its readers every year with their annual Halloween special editions, featuring some of the movies' most famous monsters on the cover as stylized cut-out masks. Behind their earliest Halloween covers was Guy Juke, an internationally respected artist who had created dozens of images for Armadillo World Headquarters, big name musicians like Willie Nelson, Frank Zappa, the Talking Heads, and even the cover art for The Ramones' album Pleasant Dreams. For their 1985 Halloween cover, the Chronicle chose to pay homage to the Lone Star state with the home-grown horror film that had shocked the nation, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The cover was a sensation, with Juke's dark and angular art style pairing perfectly with Gunnar Hansen's psychotic, chainsaw-wielding Leatherface. In excellent condition, this piece shows a faint paint drip along the right side into the white background, which may have occurred at the time of the painting's creation. There is a slight warp to the upper right portion of the board in the black background, but this piece is otherwise in outstanding condition. Very Fine on Canvas Board.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
