New Work Wednesday! 1st Monster Series Painting is FINISHED!

Dracula v.1 - 24 x 18" on canvas

For this week's NWW I am featuring the first completed painting in the Monster series. There will be more to come (stay tuned). For the Monster series I wanted to combine my love for image and text in a series of paintings. First I made a collage background with the pages from classic monster literature; this one features Bram Stoker's "Dracula." Then I created concept drawings of the monsters from the stories and painted
them on the backdrop of pages. I am definitely pleased with the results and currently in a creative frenzy working on the other paintings in this series. (Scroll down to watch a video of the painting being created)
