For those with a taste for the darker side of the Holidays, or for all of the lit geeks out there, this image captures a Victorian door knocker reminiscent of the first appearance of a ghost in Dicken’s ‘A Christmas Carol.’

It also marks the first appearance of a guest artist working with Skyliner Studio! Ben Etten, the artist behind Pessimistic Press in Minneapolis, had this to say:

“I love what Skyliner stands for, and was flattered to be invited as a guest artist… but was concerned that my art is typically ‘darker’ and might not be a great fit for a holiday theme. After a bit of thought, it struck me that Charles Dickens solved this problem for me with his ‘ghostly little holiday tale.’ Not only did it offer a chance to do something darker (think coal thickened air of an 1800s London alley) but the overall narrative is thematically consistent with the message Skyliner is promoting!”

This three layer image captures a lion’s head door knocker in way that leaves you almost feeling the cold metal in your hand… or perhaps that’s just the chill of wondering if you just saw a ghost? Either way, it’s enough to make anyone ask the question… “Jacob Marley?”
