A Scary Childhood Memory

This image of Maila Nurmi, a.k.a. Vampira, haunted me as a child. This shot from Plan 9 From Outer Space was used in the opening to WPIX New York's Chiller Theater show. I remember having to hide my eyes as the shot approached...and yet, I must have peeked a little...

I absolutely had to draw this one. From my 3rd sketchbook, Sketchy Things Walk Among Us (2001).

What a fun piece of art! As always Frank, your sketches are charming and highly addictive to the eyes. So glad you decided to enter the world of blogdom! Looking forward to my daily dose of Sketchy Things! Salute!

Best, Terry.
