Lycanthropy and Me

I have always loved werewolves. The character of Larry Talbot, The Wolf Man, was my first monster, and I've always felt a certain bond with him. Perhaps because he was just a regular guy with extraordinary bad luck. Most cinematic lycanthropes suffer from the same scenario, or at least the best ones do. Here are a few of my favorites, rendered in various mediums...



Oliver Reed from CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF, sketched with charcoal pencil


Lon Chaney Jr. and Elena Verdugo from HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, graphite pencil.

And Chaney again, this time in simple pen and ink.

Even an artist who is pure in heart...

Geez, Frank, I looked over the first drawing in conjunction with your profile picture and it looked like you could have created a hairy self portrait there.
I'm not saying you look like Reed, but there's a similarity between the two pics.

I love the House of Frankenstein drawing.
All of your work is fantastic, but I especially love your caricature stuff!

Interesting blog. I'll be back to check out what you're doing. It looks like you've got some good ideas and works to share. Have you seen the newest Wolfman movie, with Anthony Hopkins?
