O.K. shameless self promotion is over for now, so here is some more art for you to enjoy:) Below is a painting that started out as a sketch done for a fan of my art and aspiring artist, in his sketchbook. I made sure I got a pic of the sketch so I can paint over it. I always love signing autographs and sketching for people. It forces you to work purely from imagination and only reference what you have in your mind. In this case it was artist H.R. Giger, Bernie Wrightson, Simon Bisley, Carlos Huante, and the movie Prometheus. Thanks for stopping by, and helping out with my book project. Enjoy!!!!!

The Bride Of Frankenstein

Bride of Frankenstein (advertised as The Bride of Frankenstein) is a 1935 American horror film, the first sequel to Frankenstein (1931). Bride of Frankenstein was directed by James Whale and stars Boris Karloff as The Monster, Elsa Lanchester in the dual role of the Bride and Mary Shelley, Colin Clive as Henry Frankenstein, and Ernest Thesiger as Doctor Septimus Pretorius. The film follows on immediately from the events of the earlier film, and is rooted in a subplot of the original Mary Shelley novel, Frankenstein (1818). In the film, a chastened Henry Frankenstein abandons his plans to create life, only to be tempted and finally coerced by the Monster, encouraged by Henry's old mentor Dr. Pretorius, into constructing a mate for him. Below is my caricature of The Bride, done for The Little Book Of Monsters Vol.2 Thanks for stopping by, Enjoy!!!! Bride-Of-Frankenstein_10_23_13

The Wicked Witch of the West

Here is a caricature of Actress Margaret Hamilton as The Wicked Witch of the West, from the classic film The Wizard Of Oz. Hamilton also played as Miss Almira Gulch in the movie. I been asked recently to be part of Vol.2 of Rodney Dollah's Little book of Monsters coming out next year, you can see details and check out the list of artist showcasing their work here. I was working on a Bride Of Frankenstein piece for my submission into the book, and Rodney asked if I would do a second piece so I can have a nice double page spread in the book. Obviously I responded with a heck yes and got busy painting this wicked witch piece. Hamilton has such a strong silhouette in her witch costume, she created a strong character that in my opinion still stands the test of time as a great cinema villain. I'll be posting the Bride Of Frankenstein piece soon, for now enjoy the Wicked Witch Of The West. Thanks for stoppin by:) Wicked-With-Of-The-West_color_001
