Vincent! Basil!

RIP Basil Gogos.

Some of the most iconic pieces of classic monster art were found on the front covers of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine throughout the '60s and '70s, that art no doubt responsible for countless monster kids being bitten by the proverbial bug. Vibrant and eye-catching, the magazine's cover art made horror stylish, beautiful and cool.

Those paintings were the work of illustrator Basil Gogos, who we're sad to report is the latest in a long line of true horror legends who have recently left us.

  1. The ease of digital tools has kind of destroyed the market for really skilled illustrators and painters like this. Why pay a living wage to a true artist when someone's nephew has a bootleg copy of Photoshop. Such a shame.
