This one was a little intimidating to paint! I was always worried that it would be too difficult to get all the details of the bandages in place at such a small size, but it turned out great! My nephew Jentry Uberti bought this one and was sporting it at Monsterpalooza. He took it to Sara Karloff’s table to show her, and she signed a photo for him that said “Nice necklace!” Nothing like getting complimented on your artwork by the daughter of Boris Karloff! Thanks Jentry!!
Lon Chaney Sr. in London After Midnight. I figured it was high time to do a better version of him after my first attempt from several years ago. This one is still available, only $25 + $3 for shipping. Contact me if you are interested in owning this one!
Jason Voorhees without his mask is a pretty ugly dude. If I was that ugly I would probably run around with a machete hacking up teenagers at a summer camp also! Ugly or not, I love painting detailed creeps like this in my bottle caps! This one was sold at Monsterpalooza 2012!
Ray Harryhausen is one talented dude. I grew up watching all of his incredible stop motion animation films, and one of my favorites has always been Jason and the Argonauts. Any young kid that saw the scene with these skeletal warriors rising up out of the ground to do battle with Jason will know what I am talking about! My friend Robert Hazboun certainly knows, and he bought this bottle cap monster from me! Thanks as always Robert!!
Every now and then I get the urge to paint a monster straight outta my own imagination, and this is from one of those moments. This one was painted to take to Monsterpalooza, I didn’t sell it there, but it did sell at the haunted pin up car show a couple of weeks ago- or rather I traded it to a cool gal that runs a company called “Monsterously Gorgeous”.
Another of many monsters that were long overdue to be painted in a bottle cap! Rat Fink is one of the coolest character designs ever. Ed Roth was the man for sure! I painted this one to take with me to Monsterpalooza, and out of the 30 or so caps I painted, this was the very first one sold at my table! Dosen’t get much cooler than Rat Fink! Mazooma!!
One of the most original characters to make an appearance in a horror film for many years, SAM is just sheer brilliance. I loved the whole guardian of Halloween concept surrounding this character, and what a cool job they did depicting this in the movie! This one was done as a commission for my friend Christel Edwards Anthony- Thanks Christel!!
Back home after a long road trip to Burbank, California! I love the MONSTERPALOOZA convention, and this year was no exception. This was the 3rd year I have gone to the show, and the second that I have sold my artwork as a vendor. I learned a lot from this show and made a lot of new friends. I really enjoyed visiting with people at my table, and I want to say thanks to everyone that stopped by, bought artwork, and made the show an enjoyable one for me! Here is a photo of the monster that was right across from my table at the show, the mighty SHOCK MONSTER, created by the talented Adam Dougherty.
Any chance I get to paint the Creature from the Black Lagoon is a welcome opportunity! This is another commission for my friend Robert H. I love the background on this one, and as always had a great time painting the Gill Man! This one is SOLD.
Yep, this is the second time I have painted Bub in a bottle cap. I was excited to have the opportunity of meeting the actor that played Bub at Monsterpalooza in April, but unfortunately he had to cancel. Oh well, it was still fun painting this one, and hopefully he can find a good home at Monsterpalooza, or maybe someone will see him here and pick him up. Only $25 +$3 for shipping. Comes ready to wear as a necklace, with a 30″ ball chain included.
I absolutely loved this show as a kid! I remember playing War of the Gargantuas at school during recess after this had aired on TV the night before. This BCM was a commission for my friend Robert H., who now holds the distinct honor of owning more of my original bottle cap monsters than anyone else. I love the way this one turned out, I used a fluorescent orange for the background, and when you see it in person, this thing literally glows! Very very cool! Yep, this one is SOLD.
I had been toying around with the idea of painting a Gene Simmons bottle cap monster for a while, then I got a request to paint this from a friend of mine, so that pushed me over the edge to get it done. After all, when you are talking about a guy that drools blood, spits fire and wears huge dragon boots on stage, I would say that qualifies as a monster! This one is SOLD.
