A U Monster poster that was never made
« on: December 05, 2007, 01:09:35 AM »
My Fellow UMA ers..

Having done some work for Dynamic Forces here in NJ I was in thier warehouse a few years ago signing about  500 comics and posters for them of my work for Marvel Comics when I noticed this cool little print out on one the desks.
They had already done posters/lithos of Frankenstein by the amazing Greg Hildebrant and Dracula by Alex Horley and this was the next in line to be made a poster of. I do not know who the artist is but I thought it was cool and I sure would have bought one.
Unfortunately it was never to be but when asked they gave the print out to me.

Now now I give it to you my fellow Monster loving brothers and sisters..

Behold and wonder at what we missed out on ...











Best..

I remember seeing a very small pic of this and thinking I need one of those.

Very dynamic and cool...obviously NOT actor likenesses, (Universal Style Guide) but very cool nonetheless.

Thanks for sharing! 

I like that Mummy....creepy.

Tom, I think that David Michael Beck may have did that piece.

This is probably going to sound really stupid, but I swear I saw this art somewhere else before. I believe it was featured on a proposed uni-monsters skateboard that never came out? Am I out of my mind? I swear some one posted about this once at the old group.
