1. I recently finished this poster for a local museum, the Wilson Place Mansion, which is holding a live reading of War of the Worlds in honor of Halloween. This is the second year they’ve done a Halloween-themed event, last year doing readings of Victorian ghost stories in their parlor. I was really stoked to do this project, because I love old film posters and wanted to bring downtown Menomonie into it. I pulled from several War of the Worlds posters/covers to make sure the visual language was the right vintage. It was a really fun, quick project.

All October long, I’ll be posting monster drawings on my Tumblr page. Here we have Medusa from the Ray Harryhausen-produced Clash of the Titans. Man… that movie freaked me out so much when I was a kid. I couldn’t look at Medusa for fear of turning to stone. She just terrified me.

My pal, good ol’ Matt Talbot. I’m retumbling this series of illustrations because he is awesome.

In honor of October, I’ll be posting quick monster drawings on my Tumblr all month (well, at least as much as my schedule allows). Here’s one of my favorite classic movie monsters, the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Happy October! In honor of the year’s spookiest season, I’ll be posting a series of quick monster drawings this month, hopefully a couple a week if my schedule allows. Also taking requests if anyone has ideas. :)
