Halloween is one my favorite times of year. I always think back to seeing Rocky Horror Picture Show around Halloween time with the participants dressed in costumes and throwing things at the screen. I loved the way the movies was an homage to older B horror movies. I drew this portrait of Tim Curry especially for my Horror themed art show at Brix City Brewing in October.

I recently joined Instagram and one of the first drawings that I posted was my new Elvira that I created for my art show. It was a really cool surprise when Elvira reposted my artwork on her Instagram! Elvira has always been an inspiration to me. I love her style and her sense of humor.
My art work is being exhibited at the Grassy Noel Gallery in Teaneck, New Jersey as part of the Whimsical and Macabre show that is up until November 27. I have a combination of iPad prints as well as paintings that use my iPad images.
[A couple of days after the exhibit opened we experienced Hurricane Sandy in this area. We had a lot of devestation in New York and New Jersey, and many places are still without power, food and water. If you would like to make a donation of any amount go to Redcross.org]
Halloween will be here before you know it, so I am trying to draw some of my favorite horror movie actresses before the big day arrives. Maila Nurmi was, I think, one of the first people to combine a horror and pinup personna together. Her Vampira character was campy and funny way before Elvira hit the horror scene (in fact, Nurmi tried to sue Elvira for stealing her act). Who are some of your fave Horror babes?
