What do you get when incredible art meets famous movie monsters? You get a very happy, super excitable Wendy, that’s what.
We’re all familiar with the most famous “Master” artists and their works. Leonardo Da Vinci, Caravaggio, and Sandro Botticelli, just to name a few. On sight, almost anyone can identify Michelangelo‘s stoic statue of David, or his magnificent Pieta, where the lifeless body of our Lord lies draped across the Virgin’s lap. Or the beautiful Sistine Chapel ceiling, with its hundreds of Biblical figures suspended high above the heads of visitors. Or Da Vinci’s “Last Supper” with that ghostly, ownerless hand grasping a knife. We would all recognize Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night”, Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”, and Salvador Dali’s famous depiction of melting clocks, “The Persistence of Memory”.
But master artists and their paintings are not confined to the walls of prestigious galleries and museums. And if you grew up in the ’60s or ’70s, and were a fan of monster fanzines, then you’ve likely held many gallery-quality masterpieces in your own two hands.
