Dean LeCrone started collaborating with artist/ photographer Allen Freeman in 2003/4. They were both exhibitors at ComicCon and when they met they hit it off as they both loved comic books. Allen has a history of graphic arts with comics and publishing and photography. He brings all of his art sophistication, technique and his long history into photography. Dean has been a model for him and a cartoonist. He has been Edward Scissorhands, the Steampunk character Dr. Artemis Peepers and The Joker. He also used to be an actor and this is a great way to express himself through the character study within Allens’ photography. Maureen Barrack has to have Dr. Peepers in the Alley Art Festival in September and he is always happy to oblige.
The Dr. PEEPERS HALLOWEEN BASH!!! is THE Party to attend this weekend!!! Artbeat on Main Street will be transformed into a Sensational Steampunk Halloween Haunt!
