Scrawls From The Crypt: August 18, 1973

On this day 40 years idyllic summer afternoon drive became a nightmare. In honor of that seminal day of horror, I present this old scrawl from the crypt circa 1992. This is a pencil drawing (several actually) that I mounted onto a hand silk-screened background. I used yellow black light paint on illustration board and made a screen of the red psych pattern that was printed over the yellow, begging the question: who will survive and what will be left of them? Hail to Tobe Hooper, Wayne Bell, Kim Henkel, Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns, Paul A. Partain, Edwin Neal, Jim Siedow and the rest of the saw family. "What's that stench???"
