“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.”

The Abominable Dr Phibes


Boy, what a pain in the butt this painting was! The girl was rendered in a few hours but the ol’ doc took all dang day. I think the last time I labored this long on one face was when I painted The Creature From The Black Lagoon and I’ve pretty much stuck to the ‘smoothies’ since then. Still, I can’t call myself a horror artist if I avoid all the characters with lumpy faces so I finally bit the bullet and got stuck into the lumpiest guy of all; the revengeful Dr Phibes!
