Monster Creeps

This is my piece for the upcoming art show Monster Creeps, a tribute to the films Night of the Creeps & Monster Squad.

I was only vaguely familiar with the movies when I got the invite for the show, though I knew of some friends who had fond childhood memories of Monster Squad. After watching the movies and doing some research I came up with this piece, which will make absolutely no sense to anybody who isn't familiar with the films, hah. (So don't worry if you feel like you can't quite get the joke in this one.) So far the other artwork I've seen for the show has been comprised of amazing group shots and epic posters, so I thought I'd do something a little simpler and lighter in tone.

The show happens Saturday, August 6th at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, California. I believe I read that the director, Fred Dekker, will be in attendance and that a screening of Monster Squad will follow the reception.
