Birthed in printmaking, weaned on digital media, graphic artist and filmmaker Vincent Marcone has become his own unique creation and the architect behind My Pet Skeleton, a culmination of his dark artistic visions. My Pet Skeleton catapulted to early success over a decade ago when Marcone premiered a digital art slideshow of wispy phantoms, lonely scarecrows and insects trembling in a world of rust and stained paper. Sinister yet soothing, My Pet Skeleton was instantly recognized by some of the leading media entities in the field and Marcone went on to garner a Juno Award for CD/DVD Artwork Design of the Year and an Interactive Emmy.
His cross over into film happened when he was summoned by Universal Music to direct a video for the metal band, Mushroomhead. Marcone’s first short film, The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow, was co-directed with Rodrigo Gudino of Rue Morgue Magazine. The film earned a Genie nomination, finalist recognition in the Cannes Short Film Corner online competition, and amassed awards worldwide on the short film circuit.
In 2011, Vincent decided to reconnect with his creative roots in painting and print making to relaunch My Pet Skeleton with a collection of work that has previously not been available to the the public. He currently paints in his studio inspired by the collection of weird things that ordain his walls.
