“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

Dracula DS Illustration


This is the first in a series of oil paintings that I’m doing to illustrate an article in the Dark Side magazine based on Hammer’s 1958 classic Horror Of Dracula. I’ve done this once before with The Creature From The Black Lagoon and that came out looking really beautiful so I’ve got high hopes for ol’ Drac here. Unlike CFTBL this article will be more about the artwork so I get to wax lyrical about each piece and bore everyone senseless in the process! I’ve already got the next illustration sketched in so if the virus doesn’t get me, number two in the series should be up in a few days. However, if the virus does get me I’ll quarantine myself, paint Kylie Minogue in a wet t-shirt and then pass out in my palette a happy man!
