Matt Brassfield, a local independent movie maker, asked me to contribute to a benefit for Dayton, Ohio television icon Dr. Creep. He’s convinced several Dayton artists to donate a piece of art for each episode of Dr. Creep’s New Shock Theater, a revised version of his old late-night horror show, in order to serve as the covers to the soon-to-be-released DVDs. This is all for a good cause as the proceeds from sales will pay for Dr. Creep’s healthcare costs.
The episode for which I designed the DVD cover features “Devil Doll” (1964). It’s a typical B-horror film in which an evil hyponotist/ventriloquist plots to gain an heiress’ millions. It received a total of 3.1 stars out of 10 on IMDB.
At the top, you’ll find the final colorized version of the art that will appear on the DVD cover. My OK, Panic partner Eric Shonborn applied the paint. In the middle, you’ll find my original black and white art. And, at the bottom, my pal Wheeler attempted his own colorized version.
