Very honored to be a part of the Rick Baker tribute show, Monster Maker. This guy has had his hand in so many classic projects that it was hard just to decide what to draw inspiration from. In the end I decided to go with An American Werewolf in London. My print is a three color, hand pulled screen print that measures about 18x12. It comes in an edition of 25 as well as a special edition print on wood panel. The show runs till November 15th at Hero Complex Gallery. For more info, visit http://hcgart.com.
