Movie Monsters Look Way Less Intimidating (But Much More Delightful) In Watercolor
Freddy Krueger may appear far more malevolent when he steps out of “A Nightmare On Elm Street” and into a Sinestro Corps uniform. Soften him up with some light watercolors, however, and he gets way easier on the eyes. So do Clive Barker’s unsettling Cenobite Pinhead, Aliens and Jason Vorhees of “Friday the 13th” fame. The paint thrown onto them by John Locke-lover and artist Alex Pardee gives a terrifying sense of motion to their mutilation tendencies, but it also shows the iconic baddies in a new light.
The series of prints Pardee put together to celebrate his affection for horror flicks takes on John Carpenter’s “The Thing” and David Cronenberg’s “The Fly” at Zerofriends.com, but he renders them with the affection of a child’s first puppy. In fact, his version of Cujo from the Stephen King book of the same title looks like it wants to slobber blood all over your face with a big wet kiss.
