Pinhead Painting

#GhoulMourningManiacs!!

I have been a long time fan of Hellraiser and Doug Bradley as the Cenobite Pinhead, since first watching the film on VHS, as a high school junior in 1988. I bought the Screamin’ vinyl model and put it together in my first apartment when I was 19. I used to workout to the Hellbound soundtrack. I loved the music, as it reminded me of Wagner. So, what would happen if I painted the lead Cenobite and met him? Glad you AXED!  

I was an exhibitor at Niagara Falls Comic Con.  I got to meet him and amazing artist Stephanie Ciullo. I first met them in September, but this was different. I was putting my heart on this canvas. 

Doug signed the painting and clowned around to make me less nervous. We talked about our mutual love of the band Ghost. My booth neighbor went with me for some moral support. Meeting your favorite modern day horror icon is a bit overwhelming.

Christopher Lee – Curse of Frankenstein 

#GhoulMourningManiacs!!

I decided to paint the late, great Sir Christopher Lee from Curse of Frankenstein. Karloff is my favorite actor to portray the monster. But, Lee’s portrayal is exceptionally creepy and ghastly. I remember seeing the film on a Sunday afternoon, many moons ago. This is acrylics on 16×20 on canvas board.

Spiderman vs Lizard 

#GhoulMourningManiacs!!
I love the 1960’s Spiderman cartoon and decided to paint a scene in watercolors.  I took a screenshot and used that. I changed some minor things. Keep in mind that when I paint stuff like this, I’m like a cover band- I’ll get close but will infuse the project with my personal spin. Please enjoy…

I did a quick watercolor painting of  Jack Skellington, from Nightmare Before Christmas. Usually I post my progress, but I can’t find those photos. So, just one to show.
