Unfortunately, no, it doesn't have to do with one of my favorite childhood movies, other than the fact that it has many of it's co-stars. I recently did a cover illustration and some inside illustrations for this week's issue of IN This Week, a Utah entertainment magazine. The cover article will get you in the mood for Halloween and is a great primer on classic monsters made famous by Universal with zombies thrown in for good measure. I love Halloween and I grew up on a steady diet of classic monster movies, so this assignment was right up my dark corridor. I had a blast drawing them.
Here is the image that was used for the cover featuring a zombie, the Wolfman and Frankenstein's monster:
And here are a couple of illustrations of Dracula and the Mummy that were used for the inside:
The article doesn't make a mention of my favorite Universal monster, The Creature From The Black Lagoon, so I think I might just have to do a portrait of him sometime this month myself.
If you live in the Salt Lake area, the issue hits newsstands on Thursday, Oct. 1. Be sure and pick it up!
