My favorite 24-hour horror movie marathon, the Massacre takes place October 12 at the Patio Theater here in Chicago and the guest list is truly surprising.

While a lot of other artists feel the need to throw every single detail of a film into their posters, Shaw’s style is a very unique one, typically focusing on an identifiable object from the film, and working from there.
By far my favorite artist working today, Jaw’s posters are plastered across my walls at home, and it’d be an accurate statement to say that I was pretty stoked to spend a little bit of time speaking with Jay regarding his work with Mondo & Gallery 1988, how he got into poster design, and some of his favorite horror films.
