I don't believe the artist was named. I would have noted his name.

 :-\

Overall, I'd say the art on the SPP wallets and plaques isn't up to that of the Aurora monster model kits by James Bama or the covers Basil Gogos did for Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, but it's a lot better than that found on the Universal monster binders, pinback buttons and just about any other Universal monster art from the sixties

Stoned on Standard Plastic wall plaques.




Cool! I hadn't actually realized the wall plaques were that big.

Who is that though? Is that you?

While I've got to hands down agree that the Aurora art is more accomplished that the SPP wallet or plaque art (which is largely knocked off of the Aurora poses), and I do believe James Bama to me a master illustrator, Basil Gogos is an 'fine artist'. To me his works, even when I was a child, stood out from all of the rest of the monster images I saw. I think the first three Hasbro paint sets and the images used on the binders are "better" than the SPP work, in the illustration sense, and they crtainly are more on model, coming nearly directly from publicity stills, but I really love the oddness of the SPP plaques, especially the Ceature, Phantom, Mummy, and Frankenstein, and the wallets are great too. Both versions of the Elwar buttons, with the exception of the Wolf Man patterned after the Aurora illustrations, have charm as well.

I think our media galleries have images of all six. Hasbro also released pencil and paint sets of Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula, and the Wolf Man.

I love '60s monster art! In addition to those examples, I would add the Marx Frank batt op box art, the Jaymar puzzle art and, of course, many of the Castle Films boxes. Maybe not Bama or Basil, but great stuff nonetheless!

I like both Bama and Gogos but prefer the artwork of James Bama.

We're in complete disagreement on that point. I think the artwork on the SPP monster wallets is much better than the artwork on the Universal monster binders.

The Wolfman/Creature wallet is definitely my favorite.

I have that M&TC issue somewhere. I can't recall an artist named. That was my first exposure to many of the classic monster toys and kits. It's dog-earred as all get out, but it's around here SOMEWHERE.

Creature and Wolf Man, and Mummy and Dracula got my vote.

Do you think they bloodied up the Mummys opposite eye on purpose ?
