“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 Vampire Lovers Oil


I only ever submit my best stuff for Dark Side covers and I think this painting qualifies as one of my better ones. Mind you, I’ve painted Ingrid Pitt and Madeline Smith so many times that I can almost do ’em without any reference pictures. For this one I dug up an old black and white snap and copied that. I usually like to make up my own scenario’s but this one is so perfect it can’t be bettered.
