I’ve actually been sitting a version of this illustration for quite some time now. Originally it was just a simple pin-up that I was making from an old photo I took. Then it became a sort-of self-promo piece, with a logo of mine big and filling that left negative space. Now I’ve finally finished the damned thing (not for lack of want, I’ve wanted to show this for a while, but waited) and can show it off. And, surprise-surprise, it’s dipping its toes in the pond of 50′s B-movie horror.
Anyhow, yes, I know there’s an ugly, unsightly, horrendous watermark/copyright over the damndable thing. But that’s out of necessity, as I’m sure you can figure out. I’ve had a number of images misappropriated in the recent past. So hopefully an ugly pockmark upon its face will deter the would-be thieves from pilfering my wares. Cross your fingers.
That being said, if you would like a copy of this unmarred by ghastly watermarks, I’m thinking of selling this at this year’s Festival of Fear that’s part of FanExpo. Then selling online perhaps via Etsy. Penny for your thoughts, people. As always, clicken-to-embiggen.
