GOGOS!

I certainly can't let Halloween go by without posting a couple of paintings by legendary horror artist, BASIL GOGOS. Above is JONATHAN FRID as BARNABAS COLLINS, from TV and film's DARK SHADOWS, painted for the cover of FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND #59, 1969. Below is BORIS KARLOFF as the FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER, from THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, painted for the cover of the CD, ROB ZOMBIE presents THE WORDS AND MUSIC OF FRANKENSTEIN.

HYDE N' SHRIEK

Here's MR. HYDE from the RANKIN/BASS feature film, MAD MONSTER PARTY! Cool art by PAUL CONRAD!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

DON KNOTTS

Just did this DON KNOTTS sketch card. I based the art on the DON KNOTTS character design seen in THE NEW SCOOBY-DOO MOVIES. Love the comedy of DON KNOTTS and had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times. THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW is up there on my list of all-time favorite TV shows.

PETER CRISS

So glad to hear that former KISS drummer, PETER CRISS, is now cancer-free! In 2008, PETER was diagnosed with male breast cancer and underwent successful surgery. PETER is spreading the word that breast cancer does not discriminate...it also affects men. To read more from Rolling Stone, click HERE. Be sure to check out www.petercriss.net!

VIC MIZZY

I'm sad to report the passing of legendary composer, VIC MIZZY. MIZZY, who passed away today at 93, wrote some of the most catchy theme songs for television and film, including THE ADDAMS FAMILY, GREEN ACRES, THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN, THE RELUCTANT ASTRONAUT and more. I had the pleasure of meeting VIC MIZZY at the old CREATURE FEATURES store in Burbank, CA in the late 1990s.

I've been watching the recently-released TOM AND JERRY - THE CHUCK JONES COLLECTION DVD set...beautiful cartoons! Here's a couple of CHUCK JONES' more definitive characters, WILE E. COYOTE and the ROAD RUNNER. I had the pleasure of meeting CHUCK JONES once...at a lecture he gave at Warner Bros. in the late 1990s. I was working on-staff at Warner Bros. Consumer Products at the time.
