Elvis Frankenstein
Elvis Frankenstein is an original 2 color linocut design, hand carved and hand printed on black card stock.

Since Elvis' death in 1977, there have been many people who have claimed to see him... swearing that Elvis is still alive. I'm here to tell you, He's Alive! HE'S ALIVE!

Each print measures 8.5x11 inches. Printed with custom mixed water base block ink.

Dracula
Here as of recent, I've been interested in creating simple silhouette illustrations. I had a concept of taking classic literary horror figures and making linocuts. I wanted to come up with a simple illustration to capture the atmosphere of the character.

This is what I came up with for Bram Stoker's Dracula. I wanted to come up with something a little different than the Bella lugosi or Gary Oldman likeness. So I went more the route of a wretched creature.

Each hand cut linoprint is pressed onto a page from the classic Bram Stoker Novel. This is a limited edition of 20 prints. Each print is especially unique with hand blood splatters and burned edges.

Frankenstein
Here as of recent, I've been interested in creating simple silhouette illustrations. I had a concept of taking classic literary horror figures and making linocuts. I wanted to come up with a simple illustration to capture the atmosphere of the character.

This is what I came up with for Mary Shelly's Frankenstein. Its hard to ignore the iconic creature portrayed by Boris Karloff so I didn't stray too far from the path..

Each hand cut linoprint is pressed onto a page from the classic Mary Shelly Novel. This is a limited edition of 20 prints. Each print is especially unique with Absinthe stained pages and burned edges. Each print is then mounted on black card stock, signed and numbered, measuring 8.5x11.
