Wow, how big is it?(yeah, lets avoid the obvious jokes)
I was there at Monsterpalooza with Sara Karloff in April, and Mike's display was set up just across the way, sideways from us, so we enjoyed looking at the figures all day, every day. The big monster head was about 5' tall, I'd say--and what blew me away was--when you stood close to it--you could see Boris' WHISKERS--for Mike had incredibly included Karloff's five-o'-clock shadow via some kind of bristles sticking out of the skin. It was beyond amazing! Here's a shot I took from a different angle--and a different day, when Mike had brought the "merely life-sized" Karloff figure to display next to the giant monster.
What makes the world of art so exciting is that every once in awhile an artist comes along and raises the bar in both skill and imagination of subject matter. Mike Hill is one of those artists. I can never tire of looking at his work.
I think Mike Hill should be commissioned to do a Mt. Rushmore of the Universal Monsters. We just need to find a suitable mountain somewhere.JP
