Hands Reaching Out, 1982Pen & ink, marker, acrylic.


"Ancient summers ago when I was 12, I was attracted to the tales of macabre and the fantastic. I tried with all my might to read the delirious ramblings of Poe. Horror and suspense and the works of artists that promoted otherwordly events were intellectually fascinating and somehow often overlooked. Early in my career I saw Tim’s short film ‘Vincent’ and completely fell back to those early influential days of loving the genre. Vincent Price was someone unnatainable and larger than life, and here was a story about a bored young boy who wanted to be him. it is a genius piece of animation and storytelling. It was a secret gem of mine. I watched it on my old VHS player often. Then I worked with Tim on several projects, one of them ‘Edward Scissorhands.’ Vincent Price was in it, at 79 years of age, still larger than life and suddenly attainable." - Shane Mahan, Art Department Coordinator, Stan Winston Studios, ‘Edward Scissorhands’
