Famous Monster Movie Art of Basil Gogos

This time of year always makes me nostaglic for old monster films from the 30's, 40's and 50's. And if you're a fan of these like I am then you have probably seen Basil Gogos' art. He has painted some of the most iconic portraits of classic monsters including Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney and Bela Lugosi as the Mummy, Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Phantom. His oddly bright and expressionistic color palette allowed him to render some of the most effective portraits of horror film denezins ever. This is the first monograph of his work and belongs in every horror or classic monster fan's library.

This caught my eye because I've always had a soft spot for Frankie and what better way to show that love than to spend your time carefully painting and finishing his (extra) deformed little body. I love that this model is extra misproportioned...it makes him extra cute (as if he needed to be...) Plus, for a limited time, you can buy the special Glo-Frankie edition! I seriously want one of each...maybe I'll replace the lions that flank my driveway entrance with these cute little guys... the lion's have been eating too many girl scouts and mail carriers anyway...
