“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 Beast and the Magic Sword


I’ve got to admit that I’d never seen a Paul Naschy film before painting this cover but now that I have I wanna see ’em all! Paul was obviously a huge Hammer/Universal Monsters fan and also enjoyed sprinkling a few mucky Spanish women (although on this cover she’s Japanese!) into the mix so Mondo Macabro naturally thought of me when they needed cover art.

This was a particularly challenging assignment, not because I find werewolves and oriental ladies especially difficult but because it’s the first time I’ve ever painted a woman with panties on!
