I am so excited about this! Here is my slipcover art for Severin Films‘s new release Nosferatu in Venice (1988), the unofficial sequel to Werner Herzog’s vampire film Nosferatu the Vampyre. It stars Klaus Kinski in one of his last performances, as well as Donald Pleasence, Christopher Plummer, and Barbara De Rossi. Six different directors were involved, including writer/producer Augusto Caminito, Mario Caiano, Luigi Cozzi, Pasquale Squitieri, Maurizio Lucidi, and Kinski himself. Gorgeous, erotic, atmospheric horror film– and great bonus features are included. You can preorder the limited edition DVD here!
I am the featured Artist of the Month at Book Revue, located in the village of Huntington, New York, one of the largest independent bookstores in the country and my favorite on Long Island. My Hitchcock Blondes exhibit is up until the end of January!
All paintings exhibited are for sale (as well as limited edition art prints in several sizes), which make great holiday gifts. If you happen to stop by, I encourage you to browse Book Revue’s two floors of books. You would be supporting a great local business. It has an incredible selection of new books and used books of every genre, as well as a cozy café.
Celebrate Alfred Hitchcock‘s birthday week by joining me at Class & Co for a one-night only art show in Williamsburg on August 16! The Master of Suspense turns 120 just three days before the event and what better way to spend the evening than viewing paintings from my Hitchcock Blondes series with a glass of wine in hand. Prints will also be sold and films screened!
You can find my entire Hitchcock Blondes series in my Etsy shop. Enjoy free shipping all month long.
Announcing my biggest sale of the year: 20% off of every item in my Etsy shop all month! Get a head start on holiday shopping before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Happy holidays! And I hope everybody has been participating in Noirvember!
To celebrate, I highly recommend visiting Film Forum in NYC, which is celebrating Ida Lupino’s centenary with a festival devoted to her films. It ends November 22. Ida was the first woman to direct a film noir, THE HITCH-HIKER. Known for her “tough roles at Warner Bros.,” she “then reinvented herself as a pioneer indie director, writer and producer, the first woman of the sound era to do so and the only woman director in Hollywood for decades, tackling once-taboo subject matter, under her company banner The Filmmakers.”

Available now! Stephen Jared‘s espionage thriller The Chameleon Thief of Cairo. I was lucky enough to be asked by Stephen to illustrate the cover, the third installment of his Jack Hunter series. Print and ebook versions are available on Amazon. Stephen is an actor and writer and is currently the associate producer of a forthcoming documentary on the legendary movie poster artist Richard Amsel.
“It’s 1948. The war is over yet trust among nations is low. While Cairo is jittery with calls for revolution, American spies are murdered, and new eyes are needed on the ground.
Having earned recognition for heroics in China during the war, Jack Hunter is asked to assist in gathering information. He and his best friend travel to Egypt hoping to revisit the spirit of earlier adventures. Shortly upon arrival, however, what they find is not a lively escapade but a changed world, people torn apart by grievances, dark alliances to money and power, fundamentalism, and cynical, suspicious characters on all sides. The darkness of war seems to have settled into people’s bones. As a result, Jack’s latest tale is his most harrowing, and could even be his last.”
