Monster Monday; Part Deux.


I have always loved the movies of Ray Harryhausen. The original “Clash of the Titans”, “Jason and the Argonauts” and “The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad” are some of my favorite films. The old man and I would watch them together on Saturday afternoons. I would marvel at the effects which seem really dated to today’s standards. Mr. Harryhausen created some of the best movie monsters ever; an army of skeleton warriors, a dragon battling a cyclops and even Mighty Joe Young.
Lately, I have been drawing and painting the Cyclops quite a bit. I think it is the visual residual of long lost Saturdays.
