DAY 31 – Let’s Celebrate with the Monster MASH!
“The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolf Man
Dracula and his son ” – Monster Mash by BOBBY PICKETT
This about wraps the “31 Days of Monsters,” also known as THE BEST TIME EVER! I love all things Halloween and I can’t think of a better way to end than the image above. I have fond memories of weekend afternoons lost in the mountains of Transylvania, moonlit woods and Frankenstein’s castle. Give me the grainy black and white images of the Creature’s clawed hand reaching for a swimmer’s leg or the slow transformation of Talbot into the Werewolf any day of the week. I would like to thank everyone that popped in over the month to check out the drawings. doodles and such. (I’m at an all time high for monthly page views!) Please check back frequently for more artwork, works in progress and of course Monsters!

Two things I love about this piece:
1.) It just started as a demo on the “thick and think” line you can get with a brush and ink (the mouth of the Creature from the Black lagoon).
2.) The Wolfman looks a bit like Tom Waits.
