Wheeeeeew! I know I've been away for far too long, right?! Well tonight I'd like to share a book that I've been buried in for the past week.  It's about a very talented artist that you should all know and his name is Basil Gogos. You ever wondered who was painting the covers of Famous Monsters of Filmland? CREEPY? EERIE? SPACEMAN? WILDEST WESTURNS? and THE SPIRIT? Well now you know. The book is titled and rightfully so, "Famous Monster Movie Art of Basil Gogos"
And here is a picture of it here...

God I love this book, If you get a chance grab one because they are going so fast and the prices are skyrocketing! I was fortunate to pick one up for under $30.
It is loaded with awesome photos of his works and tells a lot about him and his life. Interesting book and not only for the Monster Movie Aficionado but for anyone. It's introduced by Rob Zombie which happens to be one of my favorite bands and his movies are great.
 Anyway I am inspired by Basil hugely and I find myself wanting to paint with a plethora of colors saturating the canvas with contrasting tones each time I paint.
 Could it be because I'm reading his books a little too much lately and I'm dreaming in technicolor as a result? Maybe?
