|Fun times await me at the drawing table!|
I got a little side-tracked with other projects this summer but, thankfully, they're done and I can once again focus on what I have loved drawing and painting since I was a kid: monsters! I've got two illustrations close to completion and a third waiting in the wings. These next three feature three monster lovelies from way back. I think the old films will be the focus for now because I love them the best. Even the low budget ones have a lot of merit.

I'd never seen the film before, which had a very impressive werewolf makeup, having only seen photos which were featured in Famous Monsters of Filmland. It was a good popcorn movie. While the directing wasn't the best and some of the actors not acting in a very convincing way, I think the weakest element in it had to be those pesky "day for night" shots which were annoying after a while.
Still, it was a fun way to spend a Saturday night, eating popcorn and hotdogs in a darkened living room with the a/c cranked up high, taking a quick trip back to the seventies and returning with a memory full of souvenirs.
