Vincentennial Post #71 - Abominable Dr. Phibes Illustration
This is an absolutely beautiful illustration of Vincent as The Abominable Dr. Phibes (with Caroline Munro to boot). This was done by fellow Tennesseean Jeff Preston - a friend of mine who actually came out to my surprise birthday party last night - thanks Jeff! This piece, like all of Jeff's, was done, amazingly, in MARKERS! That's right - markers. Jeff works by layering and blending markers and achieves a very painterly effect. Don't believe me? I don't blame you - but it's true and here's the proof: Masters of Art video tutorial featuring Jeff showing off his techniques.
It's available on Amazon.com here. Go grab a copy today and tell him Dr. Gangrene sent you!
Here's the trailer for Dr. Phibes, just cause I'm in the mood for it!! And remember, love means never having to say you're ugly!
