Breeders Halloween show poster

Sometimes I like to wear the hat of production artist. In this instance, Kyle had an idea for a poster to have for The Breeder’s Halloween show in Columbus. Take this Dr. Phibes poster, add in Kelley and wrap it up with the appropriate text. I was hanging in the hospital with my mom while […]
