The Wild World of David Lynch - official event poster - Mahoning Drive-In


We were as pleased as cherry pie when the Mahoning Theater asked us to whip up this print for The Wild World of David Lynch Fest 2 at The Mahoning Drive-In Theater in Pennsylvania. Featuring 4 of his films over 2 nights, as well as a meet and greet with 3 members of the Twin Peaks cast, Harry Goaz, Dana Ashbrook, and Michael Horse.

Our goal with this print was to make it feel like a Lynch film. In it, the viewer is alone, but is being watched. (The security camera is the same one that the mystery man holds in lost highway) There’s a lamp (often used in his films) on top of a floor model television who’s light beam cuts sharply across a picture of Laura Palmers throat, to symbolize her strangulation. The tv dial points to uhf 77, David Lynch’s age and favorite number. A lone cigarette burns in a dirty ashtray, another often used image in his films. Even the font is used in most of his credit sequences.

Limited edition of 200 offset prints available tonight and tomorrow at the @mahoningdriveintheater. Additional prints will be available at the Drive-In and through their site.
