“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.”

Elvira Alla Prima


This one started off as a bit of fun but after slogging away on it for 12 hours solid it turned out to be not so much fun after all! I love painting Elvira. Back in 1988 I ran her Mistress Of The Dark video for months in my steakhouse and customers absolutely ate it up. Sadly the same can’t be said for my steaks! Eventually the tape wrapped up and the atmosphere immediately went south, partly due to the fact that the only other film I had handy was the goddawful Mystic Pizza!
