I bought the CFTBL & Glenn Strange Frankenstein prints from Timothy Yarger about 2 years ago, both signed by Basil. If I remember correctly, they ran me around $90 for the Creature and $75 for Frankenstein. I inquired earlier this year about the Phantom print, and Tim said he had it for $650. He didn't say it was, or wasn't an original....

The $90 and $75 sound reasonable for a print, the $650 not so much....

Wow I love his Mr. Hyde Sketch.  I am so jealous of whoever bought it from you.  Hopefully gone to a good home.

How can you be so sure that the fellow who bought it was not a big fan?

After a score like that I bet he/she is now!  Where was I when that one happened?

I think I remember seeing  a Gogos Ymir, but did he ever do any other Harryhausen creatures?

I don't remember Gogos doing any Harryhausen monsters (including the Ymir), now that you mention it.

I'm trying to decide whether Ingrid should have been drawn with fang-like lower incisors as well.

 :-\

Any iconic pose Iíve seen of Ingrid Pitt bearing fangs only ever shows the upper set.

Not surprising. I've always admired her upper set.
