Another wraparound Scary Monsters magazine cover illustration done. This all digital creation features Chicago horror host "Marvin" and his ghastly "Shock Theatre" crew. You'll also see a Zanti Misfit (and a "Sam-ti" Misfit!) and several creepy crawly arm/hand creatures! Points to those who can identify all three appendages.
Since the subject matter dates to the late '50s, I went for a retro color approach -- cribbing a palette from a vintage Marx Lone Ranger toy box and using comic book-style "big dot" color. I've included a detail shot of Marvin so you can see the color technique. As always, click on the pics for a bigger view. Double click to the SIDE of the pics to see them outside of the slideshow format.
