Little darling, it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter here at Craig Mahoney studios. Very productive art-wise, but also filled with more than its fair share of financial setbacks and plain-old bad luck. So, from now until tomorrow night (Fri, Feb 6th), I’m having a fire sale on all original art currently in my inventory. Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your best offer on the piece you like, and you may have a nice piece of pop culture or sports memorabilia to hang on your walls. Check them all out below (more after the break):
“Brady’s 4th” 8″ x 10″ colored pencil on grey-toned paper.
“JOIN ME” 36″ x 24″ acrylic on canvas
“The Chairman Of The Board” 24″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas
See more after the break!

Here’s a holiday window display I did at the ModCup coffee shop in the Jersey City Heights. It’s a tribute to Christmas movies that are a little more offbeat, dark, or rarely thought of as Christmas movies. I started with the idea of John McClane jumping from a giant explosion as though the tree itself were the Nakatami building, and the whole thing grew (no pun intended) from there. All in all, it’s 15 separate hand-drawn illustrations on a hand-built cartoon tree. The movies are: The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, A Christmas Story, Gremlins, Scrooged, Home Alone, Iron Man 3, Trading Places, Jingle All The Way, Ghostbusters 2, Batman Returns, Bad Santa, and The Empire Strikes Back.
You can check it out in person at 479 Palisade Ave in Jersey City, NJ from now through New Year’s, and see more detailed photos at the end of this post.

Here’s a concept I’ve been wanting to try for a long time, and finally got around to doing and showing publicly: impressionistic portraits of jazz legends paired with abstract representations of some of their greatest albums. They’re available for purchase at my Storenvy shop, and can be seen on this Saturday, December 13th at Northern Soul in Hoboken at the closing party for my “Portraits Of Awesomeness” show. ENJOY!
