Adam Maitland Print

This woodcut print features Adam Maitland, portrayed by Alec Baldwin, in the 1988 film Beetlejuice. The focus of this playful take on Victorian portraiture is the grotesque face Adam makes in an attempt to scare the Deetz Family out of the home he shares with his wife, Barbara. Adam stretches out his nose and pushing his hand up into his head like a rooster. I’ve always considered this image a staple of the film and one of the most memorable creatures featured in the afterlife.

Hand pulled from the original woodblock and in a limited edition of 30, this friendly ghoul measures 11” x 14”. Printed with oil based ink on 60lb Strathmore Artagain steel grey paper. (Frame not included)

Drafting and Carving Process

Using reference I began the sketch process. After transferring the image to the block I start flesh out the details in ink. Then I start fleshing out the details. Working my way around the block I’m carful not to develop one area more than another so I can see how the juxtaposing line work plays off each other. My inking is sometimes more of guide as I let the different tools bring character to the line work. I used mostly V-Gouges to get the sharp lines and fine details.
