Jane,
I'll toss in one I did many years ago when I had a brief fling with the Rapidograph pen.  It's one of the few pieces of my own art that I still have--so many went to other homes over the years.  This is a traditional stippling technique, done one darn dot at a time!  lol  It's also over in the gallery at the official Karloff site.

I really like the Peter Lorre. It has a very nice feel to it. The looseness of the sketch is wonderful!

Great job!!

The only ones I have done lately are the three I did for Keith LuBrant. The images I posted at another site did not have their final coat of varnish, which you have to apply because the turpentine dulls the colors as it dries. The following images were photographed after the final varnishing, and the colors are a bit more vibrant. I hope no one minds my posting them again.

Yay! More, more!

I like that drawing very much, Robert. Today I made an experiment. My second attempt at an apple head doll. This one will be Ardeth Bey. I'll post pics soon, and more as it dries.

Mike, I posted things I've previously posted, so don't fret. I think we should have a place to show off in our new digs ;)

I'm glad you like Dr. Gogol, I think that is my favorite so far.

Now that I figured out how to embed images, here are two for the art gallery...

A Universal Monsters roller coaster painting I did awhile back:



And my latest painting looks like some sort of sailor from Popeye's homeland or as a friend, Ellis Coombs, described it, "Being an ex nuke submarine sailor, The Sea Devil, a fast attack boat out of Norfolk, scrapped in the 90's, we used to follow the russkies around. That to me looks like a Russian Nuke Sub Sailor, their reactor shielding wasn't that good & after a few years, thats what you get!!!"

Omigosh, John--that roller coaster ride (which makes me think of Vinnie Price and how much he loved what he called "rollie coasters") is tremendous!  The Creature with his claws raised high in the air!  Priceless image.  Made me laugh out loud.

Great stuff John as always! This uni-monster roller coaster artwork of yours needs to be the basis for a new theme park ride at Universal Studios! If only they could see things as we do.

Mike - I like that Wolfman more every time I see it!  You really nailed the eyes on that one.

John - I've admired your work for years - growing up with PLOP comics as one of my favorites I can't help but love your work.  The roller coaster is a hoot! 

Thanks for the pics!
Andy

    Elder Robert: I had a long and meaningful relationship with a Rapidograph pen whent I was into Pointalism, the only problem was that tattooing illustration board took a very, very long time. If I can find
some of my old works I'll see if I can figure out how to post them here---there's some gargoyles and Olivier as "Hamlet" having a chat with Yorick and a scene from "The Elephant Man".

Thanks so much Terry, Andy and our illustrious Dr. Shocker!

John, the roller coaster painting is awesome. I love the coloring in Frank's face, and the sort of, "oh crap, here we go" look on the Wolfman. I am familiar with that look, right Maxie?

If anyone hasn't checked out Meek's art yet, (fie and for shame!) get on over to my dear Maxie's blog and check out some more of her incredible, mind blowing work.

I'm headed out to Florida tomorrow, (Dad's birthday) so I'll have limited computer access. See y'all soon!
