This is a pin-up I did for Denis St. John's recently released "Monsters and Girls: Amelia" volume 3.


Click the image for a larger version. "Amelia" itself is such a weird mix of horror and humor and sexuality, and I tried to run with that as much as I could while making this. Playing with the sort of "cheesecake" aspect, while trying to keep it somewhat unsettling at the same time. It was actually really fun. And all of this was, of course, inspired by... Denis St. John.

Okay, so I am a dude that really enjoys horror movies. Because of this, Denis St. John is one of my favorite cartoonists ever. He understands horror better than most of us probably ever will, with a knack not just for conveying the terrifying and the grotesque, but also for knowing how to make it fun. His comics are ridiculous, expressive, and over the top, and - most importantly - frickin' scary. And especially around this time of year, what more could you ask for? The third volume of his current comic, just came out, and the first two are available to purchase through his website. You should give them a look! http://denisstjohn.blogspot.com/
